Collapse-O-Matic External Triggers for Nested Element

Here is a nested expand to test this issue.

[expand title="Level 1" id="q1" rel="top-highlander" trigclass="must-be-one" expanded="true"]
   [expandsub1 title="Nested Level a1" id="a1" rel="a-highlander"]answer a1[/expandsub1]
   [expandsub1 title="Nested Level a2" id="a2" rel="a-highlander"]answer a2[/expandsub1]
[/expand]
[expand title="Level 2" id="q2" rel="top-highlander" trigclass="must-be-one"]
   [expandsub1 title="Nested Level b1" id="b1" rel="b-highlander"]answer b1[/expandsub1]
   [expandsub1 title="Nested Level b2" id="b2" rel="b-highlander"]answer b2[/expandsub1]
[/expand]
Level 1
Nested Level a1
answer a1
Nested Level a2
answer a2
Level 2
Nested Level b1
answer b1
Nested Level b2
answer b2

Here are some external triggers:

<a class="expandanchor" href="#q1">Level 1</a>
<a class="expandanchor" href="#a1">Level 1a</a>
<a class="expandanchor" href="#a2">Level 1b</a>
<a class="expandanchor" href="#q2">Level 2</a>
<a class="expandanchor" href="#b1">Level 2a</a>
<a class="expandanchor" href="#b2">Level 2b</a>

Level 1
Level 1a
Level 1b
Level 2
Level 2a
Level 2b

Collapse-O-Matic, Graphene Theme & Any Mobile Switcher Test

First let’s test the mobile-only and mobile-exclude shortcodes to see if they are included with the plugin. No, they are not.

Now we install the Graphene Theme and test…
Oops, wrong Graphene Theme. It seems This Theme is all that is required for testing the shortcodes.

Mobile Only

[[mobile only]...[/mobile-only]]
[mobile only] this is some text that should only show up on mobile devices
[/mobile-only]

Mobile Exclude

[[mobile exclude]...[/mobile-exclude]]
[mobile-exclude] this is some text that should only show up on non-mobile devices
[/mobile-exclude]

Collapse-O/Pro-Matic Slider Effect and Duration Attributes

Currently the slide effect and duration can be set globally under the plugin settings, but what if we want to set it individually per collapse element? We need the ability to add this via a shortcode attribute and as a data attribute for the roll-your-own method.

Shortcode Attributes

Default animation_effect is slideFade and duration is fast. As of version 1.7.3 these can be overridden using two new attributes: animation_effect and duration. Since using a shortcode will save the default effect and speed to a variable, we need to set up a separate test for the roll-your-own method

[expand title="Monkeys"]...[/expand]
[expand title="Donkeys" duration="slow"]...[/expand]
[expand title="Ninjas" animation_effect="slideToggle"]...[/expand]
Monkeys
A monkey is a primate of the Haplorrhini suborder and simian infraorder, either an Old World monkey or a New World monkey, but excluding apes and humans. There are about 260 known living species of monkey. Many are arboreal, although there are species that live primarily on the ground, such as baboons. Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent. Unlike apes, monkeys usually have tails. Tailless monkeys may be called “apes”, incorrectly according to modern usage; thus the tailless Barbary macaque is called the “Barbary ape”.
Donkeys
The donkey or ass, Equus africanus asinus,[1][2] is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family. The wild ancestor of the donkey is the African wild ass, E. africanus. The donkey has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years. There are more than 40 million donkeys in the world, mostly in underdeveloped countries, where they are used principally as draught or pack animals. Working donkeys are often associated with those living at or below subsistence levels. Small numbers of donkeys are kept for breeding or as pets in developed countries.
Ninjas
A ninja (忍者?) or shinobi (忍び?) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan who specialized in unorthodox warfare. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations.[1] Their covert methods of waging war contrasted the ninja with the samurai, who observed strict rules about honor and combat.[2] The shinobi proper, a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries, appeared in the Sengoku or “warring states” period, in the 15th century,[3] but antecedents may have existed in the 14th century,[4] and possibly even in the 12th century (Heian or early Kamakura era).[5][6]

Collapse-O/Pro-Matic Highlander Must Be One

As of Collapse-O-Matic version 1.7.2 and Collapse-Pro-Matic version 1.3.2 we have added the ability to force one element to stay open in a highlander grouping. Simply add the class must-be-one to all the triggers in a highlander group using the trigclass attribute like so:

Shortcode

[expand title="Monkeys" rel="animal-highlander" trigclass="must-be-one"]...[/expand]
[expand title="Donkeys" rel="animal-highlander" trigclass="must-be-one"]...[/expand]
[expand title="Ninjas" rel="animal-highlander" trigclass="must-be-one"]...[/expand]

Collapse-O-Matic CSS Tricks .colomat-close

When an expand element is expanded it has the .colomat-close class assigned. This class is removed when the expand element is collapsed. So, if you want to adjust how an active/expanded trigger is displayed, simply define your custom css as follows:

/*inactive/collapsed */
.collapseomatic {

}

/*active/expanded */
.collapseomatic.colomat-close {

}

Simple Demo

Using the trigclass attribute we can further assign the design of the triggers for only specific expand elements.

CSS

.collapseomatic.my_special_class {
    color: green;
}

.collapseomatic.my_special_class.colomat-close {
    color: red;
    border: 2px dotted red;
}

Shortcode

[expand title="Trigger Text" trigclass="my_special_class"]Hidden Content[/expand]

Result

Trigger Text
Hidden Content

Nested Collapse Elements with Highlander Grouping

Here is a typical nested collapse group with highlander grouping:

[expand title="state1" id="state1" rel="state-highlander"]
   [expandsub1 title="city1" id="city1" rel="city-highlander"]bar1
bar2[/expandsub1]
   [expandsub1 title="city2" id="city2" rel="city-highlander"]bar3
bar4[/expandsub1]
[/expand]
[expand title="state2" id="state2" rel="state-highlander"]
   [expandsub1 title="city3" id="city3" rel="city-highlander"]bar5
bar6[/expandsub1]
   [expandsub1 title="city4" id="city4" rel="city-highlander"]bar7
bar8[/expandsub1]
[/expand]

Notice how the main level and nested sub-elements have their own highlander grouping defined. This makes it so the main level items do not affect the nested children expand/collapse states.
This is how it works:

state1
city1
bar1
bar2
city2
bar3
bar4
state2
city3
bar5
bar6
city4
bar7
bar8

Now to do the exact same thing using the roll-your-own method:

<div class="collapseomatic" id="ryo_state1" rel="state-highlander" title="state1">state1</div>
<div id="target-ryo_state1" class="collapseomatic_content">

    <div class="collapseomatic" id="ryo_city1" rel="city-highlander" title="city1">city1</div>
    <div id="target-ryo_city1" class="collapseomatic_content">
         bar1
         bar2
    </div>

    <div class="collapseomatic" id="ryo_city2" rel="city-highlander" title="city2">city2</div>
    <div id="target-ryo_city2" class="collapseomatic_content">
         bar3
         bar4
    </div>
</div>

<div class="collapseomatic" id="ryo_state2" rel="state-highlander" title="state2">state2</div>
<div id="target-ryo_state2" class="collapseomatic_content">

     <div class="collapseomatic" id="ryo_city3" rel="city-highlander" title="city3">city3</div>
     <div id="target-ryo_city3" class="collapseomatic_content">
         bar5
         bar6
     </div>

    <div class="collapseomatic" id="ryo_city4" rel="city-highlander" title="city4">city4</div>
    <div id="target-ryo_city4" class="collapseomatic_content">
         bar7
         bar8
    </div>
</div>

And the results:

state1
city1
bar1
bar2
city2
bar3
bar4
state2
city3
city4
bar5
bar6
bar7
bar8

Collapse-Pro-Matic Roll Your with Scroll Too Elements

The roll-your-own method has already been documented, however, what if you wanted to create your own sroll-to targets for each element? How can we do this with roll-your-own?

First we create an example using the shortcode:

[expand title="trigger text" findme="auto"]hidden content[/expand]
trigger text
hidden content
Now we re-create that using the roll-your own elements:

The Trigger

<div class="collapseomatic find-me" id="my_example" title="trigger text" data-offset="-60" data-findme="auto">trigger text</div>
trigger text

The Target

<div id="target-my_example" class="collapseomatic_content ">Target Content</div>
Target Content

Collapse-O-Matic Grouping and Expandall Issues

If we set up two groups for the sole purpose of creating expand/collapse all triggers that will only expand/collapse the related group we currently have to create something like:

Science Fiction:

[expand title="Star Wars" rel="fiction"]Alliance to Restore the Republic vs. Galactic Empire[/expand]
<span class="expandall" rel="fiction">Expand All Science Fiction</span>
<span class="collapseall" rel="fiction">Collapse All Science Fiction</span>

Pure Science:

[expand title="Space Race" rel="history"]USA vs. USSR[/expand]
<span class="expandall" rel="history">Expand All Pure Science</span>
<span class="collapseall" rel="history">Collapse All Pure Science</span>

Rel Example:

Science Fiction

  • Star Wars
    Alliance to Restore the Republic vs. Galactic Empire
  • Star Trek
    United Federation of Planets vs. Klingon Empire vs. Romulan Star Empire vs. Cardassian Union vs. the Borg vs. the Dominion
  • Battlestar Galactica
    Twelve Colonies vs. Cylon Empire

Expand All Science Fiction
Collapse All Science Fiction

Pure Science

  • Space Race
    USA vs. USSR
  • Ansari X Prize
    Scaled Composites vs. Many Others

Expand All Pure Science
Collapse All Pure Science

So this works, but what if we do NOT what the expanding of one group to automatically collapse any open items of other groups?

As of Collapse-O-matic version 1.7.1, two new attributes have been introduced to deal with exactly this issue. For the shortcode:
togglegroup='your_group_name'
and for the roll-your-own method:
data-togglegroup='your_group_name'

Science Fiction:

[expand title="Star Wars" togglegroup="fiction"]Alliance to Restore the Republic vs. Galactic Empire[/expand]
<span class="expandall" data-togglegroup="fiction">Expand All Science Fiction</span>
<span class="collapseall" data-togglegroup="fiction">Collapse All Science Fiction</span>

Pure Science:

[expand title="Space Race" togglegroup="history"]USA vs. USSR[/expand]
<span class="expandall" data-togglegroup="history">Expand All Pure Science</span>
<span class="collapseall" data-togglegroup="history">Collapse All Pure Science</span>
[expand title="Expand All" swaptitle="Collapse All" trigclass="setall" togglegroup="history"/]

Group Example:

Science Fiction

  • Star Wars
    Alliance to Restore the Republic vs. Galactic Empire
  • Star Trek
    United Federation of Planets vs. Klingon Empire vs. Romulan Star Empire vs. Cardassian Union vs. the Borg vs. the Dominion
  • Battlestar Galactica
    Twelve Colonies vs. Cylon Empire

Expand All Science Fiction
Collapse All Science Fiction

Pure Science

  • Space Race
    USA vs. USSR
  • Ansari X Prize
    Scaled Composites vs. Many Others
