jQuery UI Widgets
[resolved] Proper Documentation - The Lack Thereof (10 posts)

    This is a nice plugin, but there is no proper documentation on how to use it. The author says to go to the jquery site to see html examples, yet when you copy the html from the jquery site into your own wordpress widget, nothing shows up. Thankfully, another user gives a hint on how to get started.

    The jquery website shows that to display the accordion, you need
    <div id="accordian">
    Yet, to get it to work on wordpress, you need to change it to a class, like this:
    <div class="accordion">

    As I said, nice plugin but seriously, you need to clarify things a bit more. It wouldnt hurt to give precise documentation on how to use a plugin you wrote.

    There is no documenation on how to initiate any of these widgets in a text sidebar, so could somebody, please, por favor, shed some light? I only have the accordion working. Nothing else works.

    Just add valid html markup in a text widget, and as long as you are using the correct html selector it will work.

    David, I used the exact code in the readme.txt file and placed in
    a sidebar text widget and on a page. It seems the tabs class is not being applied. I just want to get tabs on my website. Please help.
    I"ve read everything already suggested and spent time reading many docs on jquery's site. Don't know what I'm missing. Thanks.

    I have the code in a page and in a sidebar widget area.
    Plugin is activated and eggplant theme is selected.

    There is a JS error on that page, probably caused by another Plugin, which is halting the script of the jQuery UI Widgets Plugin.

    'Uncaught ReferenceError: WPGroHo is not defined'

    This issue is nothing to do with the jQuery UI Widgets Plugin.

    It's a problem with the plugin JetPack. I disabled it and everything looks perfect. Thanks again.
