Add Anchors to Accordion?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

I got the accordions and I love it! I had been using other plugins for accordions in the past, but this makes it so much easier. Good work!

 

Question - I would like to add an anchor to each accordion in the group so I can link to them individually instead of just the general page. 

 

Here is the context - I am using this for services. I have the services listed in other places on the site and I would like to link to an open description. 

 

Hope you guys can help!

Hi Jenna,

 

Thanks, I'm glad that you are enjoying Accordions. Right now it is not possible to directly link to an accordion group and have it open. I did do a little research and see that there may be a way to do it though it will require me to make some changes to the code and test it out. 

 

Let me look and see what it will take to do. If it is something that won't take long and works then I can incorporate it in the next update. 

 

I'll let you know in the next couple of days if I can do it.

Hi Jenna,

 

I've updated Accordions and you should see an update in Pagelines --> Dashboard.  If not go to Pagelines --> Store --> Sections --> Your Added Sections and the update should show there.

 

Once you have updated the plugin, go to the page with the accordions. Right click on the title of the accordion you want the link to and Copy Link. Then use that link on your other page. When someone clicks on the link it will bring them to that accordion and open it.

 

Let me know if that works for you.

 

Ellen

      Hello,
      All accordion entries are shown every time, independently of the set selected. See example here:
               http://swinginatthesavoy.com/register/
      The first accordion should only show the 2nd and 3rd entries, instead of all of them. The second accordion should only show the 1st entry.
      Please fix asap! I haven't changed anything to my content in a few weeks and it was working fine before. I am guessing this appeared in one of the latest DMS updates. I am going to use some CSS to try to hide the undesirable entries.

      Hi Ellen,
      I've tried every way I could think of to use CSS to get rid of what I assume is padding or margin from the top of the accordion section so that it can be closer to the <p> above it. 
      Here's a screenshot of the way it looks now:  http://screencast.com/t/2c66f6y0dex
      If you'd like to look at the page please see: http://whub34.webhostinghub.com/~videoh6/cidev2.com/moving-services/mankato-mn-movers/
      I'd like to have the accordion section with the word "More" much closer to the paragraph line above it. If you look at the CSS you'll see several instances where I put in margin: 0 !important; and padding: 0 !important.
      Can you please tell me how I can adjust the section so it is closer to the paragraph above it?
      This site is on latest versions of DMS 2 and WP. 
      Many thanks,
      Bruce

      Hello,
      I wanted to let the community know that there is a problem that has happened on a couple of DMS sites that we manage. The problem is that there are certain plugins/sections that DMS uses (such as 'Accordions' and 'Sidekick') that will appear to have an update. However, when you actually update the plugin it is replaced but a similarly named plugin. Here are the original plugins:
       
      Original: http://dms.elsue.com/accordions/ (authored by @ellenmva)
      Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/accordions/
       
      Original: http://www.pagelines.com/shop/third-party-extensions/sidekick/ (authored by Evan Mattson)
      Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sidekick/
       
      I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to make sure that other plugins/sections do not get replaced when I update them in the future as well as bring it to the DMS community's attention so that others do not experience the same confusion and frustration. Any thoughts would be very welcome in order to avoid this in the future.
      Thanks!

      Using the accordion section... and I am trying to link a menu item to the accordion title.. not individual areas...
      My links work in the main menu, linking to an accordion title... however, they seem to have issues... I have two accordions on this page...
      When I use the menu link (below).. it breaks the accordion action... it will not open the accordion to show all the content.

      however when I go to the actual page.. there is no issue.

      Please if you can take a look, I'd appreciate it.. not sure if I have the link correct.
