Is it possible to make a link trigger an accordion to open?



Best Answer ellenmva , 17 August 2013 - 06:38 PM

@flourishdesignstudio Should work now. I've updated Accordions with the fix. To update you will need to download it again from My Account and then unzip the file and upload it into your wp-content/plugins folder -- overwriting the current accordions plugin (automatic updates aren't working yet).

 

The version number with the fix is 1.3.1

 

Let me know if that does the trick.

First of all, I LOVE the accordion section. I've used it on a number of sites, and it is so easy and a great way to have a lot of information without overwhelming the reader. Nice work!

 

I would love to be able to link to a page and have a specific accordion open. I tried using an anchor, but that did not work. Is this even possible?

Thanks! I'm glad that Accordions has helped making lots of information accessible, 

 

And for your question, the answer is yes.  Basically, each accordion has an anchor link built in and when you copy that link and use it as a menu item or link on another page, it will go to the page and go down to the accordion and open it. 

 

I just hover over the accordion title I want to open and copy the link.

Then paste that link in your menu or on another page.

 

Let me know if it works for you.

OMG! That is brilliant! That made my day! This is going to be fantastic for a new site that I am working on! I'll send you a link when I have the navigation finished, because the ubermenu is going to have categories and the pages under the categories will trigger different accordion items! I am so excited! And I can't believe it was so easy! THANK YOU!!

Hi again! When I click directly from a link to an accordion, then it seems that I am unable to close that accordion to open another. Here's and example: http://rasaspa.com/m...cordions-ufi5a3

Hi,

 

Okay, so I duplicated the problem, it's a conflict of some sort between RevSlider and Accordions. If you take RevSlider off the page the accordions work. I'm going to investigate and see if it is a problem in Accordions or RevSlider and get it fixed.

 

Just wanted to let you know I see what's happening, just have to figure out why.

@ellenmva Thank so much! I really appreciate your timely responses and your great work! As you can see from the sample, your accordions are a key feature in our new site. :)

Hi Ellen,

 

I would like to revisit this topic because now I am having problems making this work. I am using version 1.5.3 and cannot make this work. We have used the links on other sites/versions successfully but cannot make it work now. Any thought?

 

Thanks Ellen!

Hi Ellen - I just purchased and am now having the same issue. Ex. http://nightvision-s...rease/approach/

 

Once on the page, cannot toggle with above approach between accordion menus, either from top, or left, navigation. Any quick fix for this?

Hi @agent654l , did you happen to find a solution? I am still having this problem and cannot find a solution to make this work in the current version of Accordions. @ellenmva, any thoughts on why this used to work but doesn't now?

 

Thanks for helping to get this back up and working!

No but Ellen was able to recreate the problem and promised a fix today, or soon. If she posts the new download/push for the plugin, I'll make sure to alert you in this post or in http://forum.pagelin...on/#entry191245 if you want to follow when she posts the update.

@flourishdesignstudio There is an update for Accordions that should fix this issue. Check in your wp-admin for the update.

@ellenmva, I am still having a problem with this. A good example can be seen here: http://dairyone.com/...c1417-732038486 which should, in theory, open the "Feed and Forage Laboratory" accordion.

 

You will notice that I have the link with the #ac to open the accordion but it is still not working properly.  In case it helps I am running Accordions V 1.5.6, Wordpress 3.8.1 and DMS 1.1.6.

 

Thank you in advance for all your help. Accordions was a great solution for this site and this linking issue is the last part to make it work perfectly!

Hi @ellenmva,

 

Just wondering if you have found a solution to this. I keep searching the forums and coming up empty. Everything is up to date so I am not sure what else to do. I know this worked on other sites that we built (using the older versions of DMS, WP and Accordions) but for some reason this has stopped now when everythgin is up to date. 

 

Thanks!
