WP-ShowHide

Description

By default the content is hidden and user will have to click on the “Show Content” link to toggle it. Similar to what Engadget is doing for their press releases. Example usage: [showhide type="pressrelease"]Press Release goes in here.[/showhide]

Usage

  1. By default, content within the showhide shortcode will be hidden.
  2. Example: [showhide]Press release content goes in here.[/showhide]
  3. Default Values: [showhide type="pressrelease" more_text="Show Press Release (%s More Words)" less_text="Hide Press Release (%s Less Words)" hidden="yes"]

  4. You can have multiple showhide content within a post or a page, just by having a new type.

  5. Example: [showhide type="links" more_text="Show Links (%s More Words)" less_text="Hide Links (%s Less Words)"]Links will go in here.[/showhide]

  6. If you want to set the default visibility to display.

  7. Example: [showhide hidden="no"]Press release content goes in here.[/showhide]

  8. You can style the content via CSS that is generated by the plugin. Here is a sample of the generated HTML. Note that pressrelease is the default type.

<div id="pressrelease-link-1" class="sh-link pressrelease-link sh-hide">  
  <a href="#">  
    <span id="pressrelease-toggle-1">Show Press Release (4 More Words)</span>  
  </a>  
</div>  
<div id="pressrelease-content-1" class="sh-content pressrelease-content sh-hide" style="display: none;">Content</div>
  1. With the example above, here are the following styles you can use in your CSS:
.sh-link A { }  
.sh-content { }  
.pressrelease-link { }  
.pressrelease-link.sh-hide A { }  
.pressrelease-link.sh-show A { }  
.pressrelease-content { }  
.pressrelease-content.sh-hide { }  
.pressrelease-content.sh-show { }

It's a great idea and could be very useful but it doesn't work on the current WP version. The site I was trying to use this on uses WP 5.5.1, with plugins Akismet, Feed Them Social, Feedzy, and Lightbox. I figure this plugin may be incompatible with one of those plugins or this current version of WP. The link doesn't do anything when clicked and the wrong text is showing up. Even though I changed the shortcode to say 'MORE INFO' it still said Press Release along with the additional number text and a number next to it. I didn't see settings anywhere for this plugin.

作者的意思可能是基于经典编辑器的HTML模式来自定义,实际上可以直接修改插件,将A标签替换为button并定制一个class,再全局内添加此class的CSS就可以使其拥有漂亮的按钮样式了。 此方法在古腾堡编辑器下也可以使用。
