Yikes! Inserts raw HTML
By , for WP 4.4.2

So this thing inserts some HTML code in your post to make it work. The problem is every time you touch the post with the Visual mode editor you mess it up.

We dropped this thing immediately once the first user reported back about how it behaved.

We have switched to "Collaps-o-matic", which is implemented with visible shortcodes. That way you can see what's going on.

So far so good

I'm using the latest wordpress, and this works great. I was worried I was going to have to learn some kind of jquery Javascript, but this nailed it.. thank you

Works great thanks for great plugin :)

That's the funky shit
By , for WP 4.2.2

Despite a misleading video by someone on Youtube, I decided to take a change on this plugin, and as a total WP noob I was able to do what I wanted to do, which was multiple Collapse/Expand paragraphs on the same page.

I don't know if it is functional enough for advanced users, but hey, for a newbie like me, this free app is great. Good work, and thanks!

Messy in the editor!
By , for WP 4.1

I was hopeful for this plugin but the mark-up produced via the editor button becomes messy if you're adding one collapsible content after another.

I added two test inputs and ended up with with nesting resulting in the functionality for each breaking:

<div class="exp-col-content-holder">

<a class="expand-cnt-link" href="#">test</a>
<div class="hidden-content">
<p class="hiddenContentp">test</p>

<div class="exp-col-content-holder">

<a class="expand-cnt-link" href="#">test 2</a>
<div class="hidden-content">
<p class="hiddenContentp">test 2</p>

</div>
</div>
<p class="hiddenContentp"></p>

</div>
</div>

The editor button needs to produce a short-code, NOT mark-up, to avoid messy mark-up.

The expected shortcode syntax would eliminate this issue and save the user from manually having to correct the mark-up.

I've opted for this plugin instead: https://wordpress.org/plugins/azurecurve-toggle-showhide/

Excellent plugin; no conflicts; easy to customize
By , for WP 4.1

I am using this for a college textbook site which uses many conditional statements, custom content types, and custom fields. Works great and is mobile-friendly.

Almost perfect
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin worked perfectly the first time to create an expanding archive list by year and month of links to PDF newsletter files available for download. It worked both on a page and in a sidebar widget.
The one enhancement I would like to see is a way to have the previously expanded hidden text collapse if another major content link (e.g. another year) is clicked. Sort of accordian style.
