    I installed the plugin w/o any error messages and I assume there are no other settings, except to enable it?

    I dont even see the title text.
    Thanks!

    Hi crashguru,

    Thanks for using my plugin and I apologize for the problem you're having. I develop in xampp as well and have not had any issues using my plugin. To try to troubleshoot the issue, look at the page's source code and see if you can see the accordion output at all (CSS can hide it from display), and also look in the footer to see if jQuery tools and my shortcodes.js is loading as well.

    Hi John,
    Thanks for responding! I followed you advice and you were right, the shortcodes were not there, although all was visible in the TMCE text editor. ...

    I found it, there was a problem with a plugin called Thickbox, that I had once installed. Saw in the page source that it had not removed everything, although I had disabled and deleted it.

    I put in load="0" and accordion is closed at load, but I understand one cant close it once opened, real pity.

    There is a very nice plugin that can do a lot of things, but the author gave up after an update had a lot of bugs:
    Wp-UI
    May be you can pick up some of his code or continue his plugin, version 0.82 was OK. His plugin could open/close.
    Would save me a lot of trouble :)

    Sorry for bothering you!

    Yeah, I'm hoping that gets addressed if/when the next jQuery Tools version is released as that is a heavily requested feature.

    May be you can pick up some of his code

    I've looked at that plugin and they were using jQuery UI, which is an entirely different jQuery script from what I'm using. As far as I can tell, the primary difference between the functionality in each script that would concern me and the users of Arconix Shortcodes revolves around how JQUI handles accordions. To change scripts over that one feature is difficult to justify given the costs involved -- a likely rewrite of some/all of the PHP, CSS and Javascript in the plugin, as well as the breaking of all existing customizations any of the thousands of users of the plugin have made.

    That said, development on jQuery Tools has been pretty stagnant the last year or two, and as jQuery itself is pushed forward I may have to move to jQuery UI. If or until that becomes an issue however, it will probably not be a move I'd be likely to make.

    Thanks for the feedback!
