Accordions Custom Post Type

Recommended Posts

I have recently installed the Accordions section into my DMS. When I add a new Accordions, it works fine, but as soon as I edit it, it saves it to "Posts" instead of the "placcordions" custom post type. There is no post type called accordions in the drop down list, which is why it is acting that way. I have WordPress 3.8.

 

Thanks,

Amy

Also when I move the default accordions to the trash, they immediately re-appear in the main list.

abielski I'm not sure what plugin is giving you that dropdown list. That's not something that is part of DMS or Accordions.

 

Let me know what the plugin is that is creating the drop down so I can reproduce the issue. I have a feeling it is something to do with the PageLines function that creates the custom post type. In the next version I am using the WordPress function which should fix the issue. But, let's make sure that is the issue.

 

Thanks,

abielski Great, the plugin author added a filter so we can add the placcordions post type.

 

You will need to add this to the functions.php file in your child theme. If you are not using a child theme, here is a blank DMS Child Theme.

 

Now, add this code to the theme and you should be all set.

function add_placcordions_cpt() {
	
	$args = array(
			'type' => 'placcordion'
	);
}

add_filter('pts_post_type_filter', 'add_placcordions_cpt');

Let me know if that works.

 

Best, 

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.
