  • Resolved slobizman


    First of all, thanks for the great plugin. I really appreciate it.

    Here’s my problematic page:

    You’ll see near the top that I have “An overview of 3D printing”. I have the following code:

    [expand title="<strong>An Overview of Personal 3D Printers</strong>" targclass="collapse-content" trigclass="collapse-trigger"].....[/expand]

    Expand is working fine, but I can’t for the life of me get the CSS element written up correctly to style the trigger and content. Here’s what I have, and I’ve tried several iterations:

    .collapse-trigger {
            font-size:14px !important;
            font-weight:bold !important;
    .collapse-content {
            border: dotted #eee 1px !important;
            background:#eef !important;

    What am I doing wrong? (The strong codes are in there only because I can’t get it to recognize the class.

    couple of things:
    1. you do not need to incude the ‘strong’ tag in the title. Either make it bold in css, or use the tag attribute like so:

    [expand title="An Overview of Personal 3D Printers" targclass="collapse-content" trigclass="collapse-trigger" tag="strong"].....[/expand]

    You can also use other tags, like: tag=”h2″…

    2. If you look at the page source of your page, you will see that the classes are being correctly assigned. (the strong tags have been removed for clarity)

    <span class="collapseomatic collapse-trigger" id="id2977"  title="An Overview of Personal 3D Printers">An Overview of Personal 3D Printers</span>
    <div id="target-id2977" class="collapseomatic_content collapse-content">...</div>

    However the classes are not being applied. This could be due to a number of things.
    -where did you place the css definitions? It seems your theme has a special way of adding custom css.
    -if you add the css to an area for @media only screen sizes, then the css will only be applied when the screen is that size (mobile devices, etc)

    Good luck, if you need more assistance, let us know.
