Arconix Shortcodes

Arconix Shortcodes provides a number of useful design elements like buttons, boxes, tabs and toggles to help compliment any website.


  • Updated toggle shortcode to be compatible with jQuery 1.9+
  • Added shortcode parameter to allow the user to set the initial state of the toggle (closed or open)
  • Restricted the dashboard widget to only show up for administrator users
  • Added a filter to simplify prevention of the dashboard widget from loading at all
  • Fixed a bug in the output of custom toggle CSS
  • Improve the JS and CSS file overrides
  • Other small fixes and improvements


  • Added a color spec to the button hover code for more consistent behavior
  • Improved the plugin's ability to control for themes which force bullet points on list items


  • Fixed a bug in the button code


  • Added support for compatibility mode which will eliminate collisions with other shortcodes using the same name.
  • Added a meta box to the post and page screens that list all the shortcodes as well as a link to the documentation. Should help with trying to remember the shortcode names
  • Added support for overriding the jQuery Tools registration which will allow the user to override which version of jQuery Tools is loaded without modifying core plugin code.
  • Improved inline documentation in the code


  • fixed a bug with the accordion script
  • changed from a 'p' to a 'div' tag on the box shortcode (now allows the use of heading tags inside the box)
  • properly clearing floats on column tags so they can be stacked


  • Fixed a bug in the output script for the Google Map shortcode
  • Tabs in prior tab groups will no longer show up in subsequent tab groups on the same page
  • A floated image in a tab will now stay in its tab container properly
  • Updated to v1.2.7 of the jQuery Tools library


  • Added 'target' and 'rel' attribute support for button links


  • Fixed a style bug regarding the alignment of bullet points
  • Fixed a style bug regarding the padding and margin of tab titles
  • Fixed a bug which was preventing the accordions from loading properly


  • Completely re-written codebase
  • Added ability to link to a specific tab through the use of anchor links. Read the documentation for more information on how to set those up
  • Added an open and closed state image for the accordions
  • Changed the toggle heading to a div due to css specificity conflicts when using heading tags
  • Added a dashboard widget which includes links to plugin related blog posts on arconixpc.com as well links to the wiki page and WordPress support forum


  • Maybe one of these days I'll get this right. Thanks to @gasie for setting me straight. This plugin is now loading jquery-tools without the a bundled jQuery. As such, I've added a jQuery dependency to my script registration which will load the WordPress supplied version. All of that simply means jQuery conflicts with other properly-coded plugins should be a thing of the past.


  • accidently supplied the wrong version of jquery-tools script


  • update the jquery-tools script to the latest v1.2.6


  • Only load the javascript if a shortcode requires it to function
  • Fix a typo in the four_fiths column function


  • Added a load attribute to the accordions shortcode. This attribute allows the user to define which accordion is open by default when the page loads. The default is 1 and will load with the 1st accordion visible, but supports 0 (all accordions load closed) through 5 (the 5th accordion is open on load).
