Support Case Month: July 2012

Hello,

I try to integrate an accordion in my Drupal 7 basic page node "Test" by using the Drupal Accordion Module Add-in with shortcode positioning.

Everything works fine if I use the accordion-builder option "Populate the accordion panes inside this project".

As soon as I choose the desired option "Populate the accordion panes inside your page, through a UL/LI structure" no accordions appear?
(The positioning is "embedded in page  replace the UL/LI structure that populates your accordion panes",  a <ul><li> structure exists on the node,  the shortcode is correctly edited on this node)

My accordion project is based upon "Example 01.lwac" (no changes).

So where is my mistake?

Thank you for help

Regards
Josef

Dear Josef,

I am afraid that the UL/LI population method is not currently supported by the Drupal plugin.

It is in the TODO list, but since you are the first to ever ask for this it was considered as a low-priority task until now.

I will forward this to our developer team so that it becomes a task of higher priority.

Dear Kostas,

thank you for your open answer - it's no good news. Because of this feature I even purchased an unlimited license today. I need this, because the website where we intend to use this function will have several content editors at different places - so I would be very glad if this documented feature will come very soon.

Regards
Josef

Dear Josef,

I have just uploaded a new Accordion release (and Drupal module) that supports ULLI and DIVs structure in Drupal.

Please download the Accordion Builder here:

http://www.likno.com/jquery-accordion/download.php

and the Drupal 7 module here:

http://www.likno.com/jquery-accordion/drupal-accordion.html

Let me know if you find any problems.

Important: due to a Drupal limitation, you should change your positioning to “Element” and use the ID you are given by the Drupal module. If you choose “replace ULLI/DIV structure” then the accordion will appear at the bottom of the page.

Example:

div element

accordion positioning

Support Case Month: March 2012

Hi Kostas,
I've setup a few pages using the accordion tool...works great.
http://bergpharma.com/company_news.html
http://bergpharma.com/careers.html
And I have setup and anchor link from a new ticker at bottom of homepage to link to the news page and open the specific pane...that works too
http://bergpharma.com/index.html
So now the client want to add a side-menu bar to the careers page, that stays at the top of the page and lists the careers on the page...and when each career link is clicked, it will open the appropriate pane.
I read through the "help" section for your app and it basically says

"Notes on "Method 3" (anchor in URL):

- this works only when the page is opened by a link from another page, not from the same page (because most browsers do not refresh the page when the link is from the same page)."

So...I was wondering if you had a "work-around" for this or any other ideas on how to make an anchor-link open a pane on the same page?? Could we add a "refresh" action in the code?
Thanks for your help...
John

Dear John,

You can achieve this using the accordion API. I see that you named your accordion “news”. Hence you can use the following command to toggle (open or close) the first pane:

News.gotoSheet(0);

Accordingly you can open all panes, but keep in mind that the numbering starts from 0  (not 1).

Two more commands that may come in handy:

news.openAllAccordions();

news.closeAllAccordions();

You can add these in the “onclick” of a plain link, or in the “javascript command - click” of an AllWebMenus item, or anywhere else where you would use JavaScript code.

Hello! We have released a new version of Likno Web Scroller (jQuery Slider) Builder: Version 1.0 build #116.

Check out What's New

- Added the "Item Modal" tab in "Project Items (F2)" with the ability to show a Modal Window when the user clicks on a scroller item, either using an "internal modal window engine" or the "Likno Web Modal Windows Builder" engine (separate product).

scroller modal window

- Added the "%page_links%" variable to the available variables (%current_page%, %total_pages%) of the "Show Page Numbers (Custom)" option of the Navigation Bar.

scroller page links variable

- Updated the "Use both Text/HTML and Image values (shows both)" option to properly function for the "Item Tooltip" and "Item Modal" features.

- Updated the "Sample Code (F4)" area to show the related code of certain configurations.

- Added the "Show Scroller Only" and the "Background Color" to the "detached" Preview Pane (soon to be added to the "attached" Preview Pane too).

scroller preview background

- Added automatic correction for older projects that did not have the "Bullets" and "Spacer" Navigation Bar CSS Classes.

- Fixed a case where the Navigation Bar would appear floating on page when it was positioned into an area that did not exist.

- Fixed the "Item Tooltip" feature to correctly handle the "AJAX" & "External" (URL) sources.

- Fixed the "with acceleration (on hold)" feature, which allows the user to hold the mouse clicked on a navigation arrow and have the scroller items accelerate their movement.

- Fixed an issue where the "Play on Page Load (automatically)" option did not work in IE.

- Fixed a bug related to missing images.

- Fixed "Example 3" to have proper spacing.

- Fixed the DIV custom population classes to work properly.

- Fixed the Navigation Arrows to always stay on top of the content.

- Several minor interface improvements.

All features here: http://www.likno.com/jquery-scroller/index.php
