    I’ve installed, activated. But now… what do I do?
    Accordion widgets is enabled by default, but I don’t see what I have to do next.
    Eg. I have a sidebar link to my page entitled: Articles. The Articles page has its first 2 articles and many more to come. I want the links to the individual articles to be accordioned under the sidebar’s Articles link – to open up when the mouse is hovered…..

    I use this plugin for its Sidebar “sticky” feature, and I believe its accordion feature can only be either on or off for all widgets and does not have hover effect.

    Hi leejosepho, I’ve turned accordion on for all widgets. And it’s working for the default sidebar widget areas for Twenty Ten, eg. Recent Posts, Archives and Categories.
    But I don’t know how to code it for my own, eg. Articles. I’m going to look at the coding for those default widgets and see if there’s something I can copy that makes a difference….

    Pity about the hover effect…. but I’m not sure what most web surfers prefer these days – the hover or the + signs?

    I got it partly working. Managed to get the individual articles listed under a widget heading, but it’s messy – I have a widget heading ARTICLES which is an active link to the Articles page (which is what I want). But then had to make another non-link heading ARTICLES with the links to the individual articles accordioned under it. I would have preferred them accordioned right under the link heading ARTICLES.

    Here’s my page to see what I mean:

    Is there a better plugin for Twenty Twelve 3.5.1 than Standard Widget Extensions?

    Hi dianabyron, unfortunately this plugin doesn’t have the hover feature. There are some plugins offering the accordion feature but I don’t know the one which has the hover feature.

    Anyway thanks for trying this plugin. Sorry for late response.

    Oh well, thanks, I guess I’ll have to keep using it until I either find one that works or figure out how to write my own!
