Collapsible Widget Area

Creates a tabbed or accordion-style widget that can hold other widgets.


  • Fixed more jQuery/UI issues that cropped up when 3.5 went final
  • Implement ability to use more than one collapsible widget area
  • Implement error handling for situations where a collapsible widget is dragged into a collapsible widget area
  • Begin implementing shortcode (still remains fairly untested)
  • Fixes various bugs (for instance, if you specified an accordion should be collapsible, that might not have worked correctly)


  • Remove extraneous debug info that threw PHP error about headers already being sent


  • Fix errors in CSS. With the bump to 1.9 in jQueryUI, the UI theme stylesheets that were being included also got bumped up to 1.9, while the version of jQueryUI that's included with WP 3.1-3.4.2 is 1.8, causing some issues with layout. The plugin has been updated to be more specific about which stylesheet is included, using 1.7 for versions of WP earlier than 3.1, using 1.8 for versions between 3.1 and 3.5 (not including 3.5) and using 1.9 for 3.5 and above.


  • Modified JavaScript to strip HTML from widget titles before rendering collapsible interface
  • Modified JavaScript to add first-tab and last-tab classes to first and last items in collapsible area
