Support » Plugin: Arconix Shortcodes » Accordion not working

  • Resolved linda_morrison


    So sorry to ask again, but the accordion on this page is not working. I tried another accordion but had difficulty changing the styling. Interestingly, when that plugin is activated AND Arconix is activated I can affect the styling with your plugin and their plugin makes the accordion work. I don’t want to be dependent on two plugins so I’d much prefer to figure out what I’m doing wrong with the Arconix plugin.

    I have <?php wp_footer(); ?> in place so perhaps I’m not connecting properly to the javascript? If you would please take a look at the page listed above I would greatly appreciate it!

    One more request . . . In the shortcodes.css you put !important next to two items under Accordion Title (see below). That is preventing me from overriding the text color on my page. I don’t see any issue with the margin, but if you could remove the !important on the color attribute that would be most helpful.

    /* Accordion Title */
    .arconix-accordions-vertical div.arconix-accordion-title {

    color: #333 !important;
    margin: 0 !important;

    Thank you so much,

    Hi Linda,

    No worries… the issue with the accordion in this case is that the version of jQuery being loaded by your theme is v1.6.2, released in June of 2011. jQuery Tools requires 1.7.x or later (the version included with WordPress is 1.8.3). If you can get that changed, the accordions should start working for you.

    I hate using !important calls, but there were some complaints regarding incorrect text color with just my basic styling, which is why I included it in the first place. You can override the plugin styles by supplying your own arconix-shortcodes.css file. Most people do that by copying mine, replacing the couple of styles they want to modify and then saving it into the root of their theme.

    Outside of that, I’ll definitely reconsider any !important calls I’m making and see if there’s a better way of doing that.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    That worked perfectly! Thank you so much for responding so quickly and for your right on target troubleshooting!
