Accordion activated by external button/link

Recommended Posts

gavred

Hi Ellen, 

 

Just a quick query. I wonder would it be possible to use an iBox as an accordion activation? 

 

Basically , I have created a nested accordion with content. But I would like it to be hidden until someone clicks a link in an iBox. 

 

A strange request I realise. No worries if its not possible. 

 

Thanks. 

Gavin.

gavred Should work without a problem. Every accordion has a url, just right click on the accordion you want to link to, copy the link and add it to your iBox.

 

Here's a quick screencast http://recordit.co/bY4pM3HYmR to show you how.

 

Best,

 

Ellen

Hi ellenmva, 

 

Thank you so much for coming back to me with such a comprehensive answer. I can see how it works perfectly in your video. 

On the site I'm working on, I'm unfortunately not getting the same result. I followed your lead and created a quick screencast to show you what's happening.

Basically, I have the accordion set up. Its nested as you can see. 

I have CSS set so that the iBox title and link don't appear. The link is the image. (You can see this at the end of the video.) 

I copy the link from the accordion as shown by your great video. Add it in. 

Upon refresh the accordion opens though its set to be close. When I close it and link the link it just bounces me down below it to the next section. 

 

Am I missing something along the way? 

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Cheers. 

Gav.

gavred Just making sure you have the latest version of Accordions, 1.7.4?

 

Also, do you have a link I can look at?

ellenmva, 

 

Thanks for coming back so quickly. I've managed to make it work as a short code button link. 

It's just when I click on the image that the link just jumps to the next section without opening the accordion. 

The site link is www.noelgroup.ie/home/

 

Thanks a million for your help. :)

(Also a small query - is it possible to keep the nested accordion in the same font? - I can open this as a new query if thats easier.) 

 

Oh and yep. On 1.7.4. The newest version.

ellenmva, 

 

Don't worry about this one any more Ellen. I'm gonna roll with the button solution and just leave the image without a link. :)

 

Thanks for your help!

gavred I found a bug which is why the page jumps if you press the link twice. Not sure what the action should be if they press the link again -- leave the accordion open or have it close.

 

Think it should just stay open, what do you think?

Hi Ellen, 

 

All sorted. It can just stay open once its clicked. We'll keep it simple. :)

 

Thanks again. :)

      Hi, 
      I'm using El Sue's Accordion plugin  V1.7.4 in DMS2 using WP 4.4.1.
      I've created a set "Jobs2", and selected three accordions for the set. Here's a screen shot: http://screencast.com/t/MXYR9p1QoEAo
      The "accordion set to show" selection box no longer works, and all accordions I've made are showing instead of the set "Jobs2"  You can see this here: http://whub34.webhostinghub.com/~videoh6/cidev2.com/jobs-at-piepho/
      I've deactivated all plugins to see if there was a conflict, and there does not seem to be one, as the accordion selector problem persists even with plugins off. 
      Can you please tell me how to fix this so the "accordion set to show" selector works again?
      Thanks,
      Bruce

      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!
