Tabs & Accordions

Recommended Posts

Ellen,

 

Read thru posts here about anchors auto-opening accordions with link anchors (which is a feature I am looking for)...

noticed on one of the links (on a user page)... that the link looks like this.. www.mysite.com/pagename/#ac469-accordions-ufi5a3

Can we get to name that other than the section anchor name?

such as..

www.mysite.com/pagename/#nameofaccordiontitle (or something like that)

 

and...

Does this also work with your Tab Section ? Auto opening?

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks

alisamski I know the links look horrible! I have it setup if you use the shortcode you can give the accordions their own id, so the link if you gave it an id of faqs would be #ac3717-faqs (the 3717 is the accordion post id). I could change the post id to post-slug and look at changing the order of how it shows in the link so maybe looking like #faq-post-slug. 

 

The accordions id or set needs to be in the link hash as well as the accordion id (post id or slug) in case there are multiple sets on the page and the different options that you can do with each set.

 

So, what I am thinking is if you are adding the Accordions using the section and the options in the DMS Editor, then I could look at adding a way so you can change some of those values (ie the set name and the post id to slug).

 

Let me look at doing that in the section and the shortcode.

 

Tabtastic you also can link to a tab and have it show, however no shortcode at this time. I can look at adding the same kind of options in Tabtastic as in Accordions -- rename the tab set and the post id to post slug.

 

Sound like a plan?

Ellen,

 

I am setting up some standard accordions and tabs now... to see what the client prefers for the look...

I like the look of accordions and the way they slide..

 

We will be adding shortcode tables inside as content... using Table Press... and wanted the linking option to auto open up the accordion/table..

 

Great that you can work with me in modifying the URL on that..

 

Should have an answer to which one today (hopefully)...

Alisa

ellenmva Looks like we will be going with accordions...
if we can have the url have the title of the accordion that would work...

 

So workflow...

Click on a link on another page...

Goes to the page with accordion > opens accordion > shows content area inside the accordion.

 

 

URL suggestion:  page/accordion-title (or similiar)?

 

Not sure how that would happen.. but better than the section showing inside the url.

 

?

alisamski I'm able to do page/set_id-accordion-slug where you can make a unique set_id. Still need to have that in case there are other accordion sets on the page. But at least it will make more sense.

 

Working on putting the option in yet keeping the old looking links for those who have Accordions already setup, don't want to mess up anyone with an update.

 

Should finish in the next couple of days. Will let you know when updated.

 

Best,

 

Ellen

alisamski You can use the Accordions now, just won't have the pretty links yet. Once you update you can then set the options and get the prettier looking links.

alisamski Finally have the update. You will see a new option set for Accordion Pretty Links and you can set an Accordions ID for the set as well as using either the individual Accordion ID or Slug in the permalink.

 

You should see an update for Accordions shortly in your wp-admin.

 

Best,

      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.
      http://bit.ly/1TepJ3s
      http://bit.ly/1Hwqf84
      however when I go to the actual page.. there is no issue.
      http://bit.ly/1QPBt8r
      Please if you can take a look, I'd appreciate it.. not sure if I have the link correct.
