    Hi there,

    I’m trying to create a custom Visual Composer element based on your plugin. I’m using roll-your-own way because I didn’t find a proper way to pass the variables in the shortcode, being put into the php code of template.

    I don’t know if there is a way to dynamically assign unique id to each element, but at the moment same ids on multiple divs cause them to behave like this.
    http://pdidner.staging.wpengine.com/14628-2/

    The first one is collapsed by default, but any other element is expanded and if you click on any of them – the first will expand and the other 3 will collapse, as if they were in a group.

    Maybe you can help me to find a proper way to keep them all separated and collapsed by default.

    <div id="test_event" class="collapseomatic">
               	<h3 class="vc-event-title">' . $title . '</h3>
    			<p><strong>' . $location . '</strong></p>
    		</div>
    		<div id="target-test_event" class="collapseomatic_content">' . $content2 .'<br>
    			<a href="' . $link . '">Read More</a>
    		</div>
    

    another possibility would be something like

    echo do_shortcode( '[expand title="Sith" trigclass="noarrow"]Target Content[/expand]' );

    But I have 2 issues there:
    it breaks php for some reason
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'title' (T_STRING), expecting ']'
    I’m not sure how to properly pass the above variables in the shortcode

    Thank you in advance

    Lots going on here.

    First, it looks like you are looping through events of some sort. These events should have a unique ID associated with them, no?

    The do_shortcode function should work, maybe try swapping the quotes and double quotes?

    Please provide more info on how you are looping through your events/elements

    I have created a custom element, which saves 4 variables: title, date,content and link.
    And then it passes them to the html code with the collapseomatic example I pasted first.

    The full code of the element can be found here https://pastebin.com/XZZiExbz

    These events should have a unique ID associated with them, no?

    Normally yes, and if I add unique ids manually everything works fine.

    The case is that my boss doesn’t want to mess with the source html code and set ids all the time. So I was looking to simplify it to 4 text fields. But I didn’t find how to assign unique IDs to each element’s div containers automatically and currently they use the same ids (it doesn’t work if I try without ids).

    So I asked you if you know the way to use it without unique ids. Or about the way to assign unique ids for each element.

    The simple shortcode like ‘[expand title=”Sith” trigclass=”noarrow”]Target Content[/expand]’ sets them automatically. But I can’t get it to work. Tried swapping the quotes and escaping them but all I get is errors or commented php code.

    Nevermind, I’ve found a way to do it with jquery
    FYI:

    jQuery(‘div[id=test_event]’).each(function(i,el){
    el.id=el.id+’-‘+i;
    });

    jQuery(‘div[id=target-test_event]’).each(function(i,el){
    el.id=el.id+’-‘+i;
    });
