Collapse-O-Matic Multi Triggers & Targets

Multiple Triggers

Add the format extra[n]-id to add extra external triggers for a single target:
<div id="test" class="collapseomatic">Trigger 1</div>
<div id="target-test" class="collapseomatic_content">You might think you can catch a monkey, but you can't. Monkeys are FAST!</div>
<div id="extra1-test" class="collapseomatic">Trigger 2</div>
<div id="extra2-test" class="collapseomatic">Trigger 3</div>

which should produce a little something like:

Trigger 1
You might think you can catch a monkey, but you can’t. Monkeys are FAST!
Trigger 2
Trigger 3

Multiple Targets

Multiple targets are available only in the Collapse-Pro-Matic plugin. To add extra targets, assign the ID in the format of target[n]-id as follows:
<div id="target1-monkey" class="collapseomatic_content">content</div>
<div id="monkey" class="collapseomatic">Trigger</div>
<div id="target2-monkey" class="collapseomatic_content">content</div>

which should produce a little something like:

You might think you can catch a monkey, but you can’t. Monkeys are FAST!
Trigger
You might still think you can catch a monkey, but you really can’t. Monkeys are still FAST!

Collapse-O-Matic > Line of Trigger Images

Step One

Create each expand element using the title element as the image tag. Assign it a trigclass=”noarrow” and give it an alt attribute that makes sense:

[expand title="<img src='http://example.com/image.jpg' />" trigclass="noarrow" tag="div" alt="turtles one"]This is the content of the first image[/expand]

Step Two

Wrap each expand element in a div with a unique class. We used ‘birdwire‘ because it makes all the images nice and need in a row like… birds on a wire! Hmmm, maybe we should have used ducksrow. Anyway, each element will now look like so:

<div class="birdwire">[expand title="<img src='http://example.com/image.jpg' />" trigclass="noarrow" tag="div" alt="turtles one"]This is the content of the first image[/expand]</div>

Final Step

Add the following to your theme’s style.css:


.birdwire {
display: inline;
float: left;
margin-right: 1.625em;
width: 160px;
}

And Blam-O! The images line up and float left like so:

This is the content of the first image
This is the content of the second image
This is the content of the third image

After you will want to add <div style="clear: both"> </div> to force new content to show up below, fresh in it’s own line.

Highlander Grouping

Now, say you want to add highlander grouping. The code now would look like:
<div class="birdwire">[expand title="<img src='http://example.com/image.jpg' />" trigclass="noarrow" tag="div" alt="turtles one" rel="ninja-highlander"]This is the content of the first image[/expand]</div>

This is the content of the first image
This is the content of the second image
This is the content of the third image

Grid of Images

In the above examples, the targets are displayed directly below the related triggers. The following example shows how to place a line of image triggers that will display the targets below all images using the roll-your-own method:

The Triggers

<div class="birdwire"> <img id="nj1" src="https://spacedonkey.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/ninja_turtles-150x150.jpg" class="collapseomatic noarrow" rel="ninjtee-highlander"/> </div> <div class="birdwire"> <img id="nj2" src="https://spacedonkey.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/ninja_turtles-150x150.jpg" class="collapseomatic noarrow" rel="ninjtee-highlander"/> </div>

The Targets

<div style="clear: both;"> </div>
<div id="target-nj1" class="collapseomatic_content">Target content for first trigger</div>
<div id="target-nj2" class="collapseomatic_content">Target content for second trigger</div>
Target content for first trigger
Target content for second trigger

Collapse-O-Matic > Multiple Triggers

First create a standard collapse element and assign it an id:
[expand title="This is the Master Trigger" id="multitrig"]

This is the Master Trigger
This is some text that when you click on the trigger you are able to read with your eyes. Well, your eyes are able to see the text, but I guess it’s actually your brain that reads the words and makes sense of them. But jokes on you! There is no sense to be made from these words because they are just pure jibber-jabber.

Now if an additional trigger link is needed, just insert a span with “collapseomatic noarrow” class and and id that is ‘bot-[the_target_id]’ like so:
<span class="collapseomatic noarrow" id="bot-multitrig">This is a second trigger</span>
This is a second trigger

Collapse-Pro-Matic Class Triggers

As of version 1.3.2 of Collapse-Pro-Matic an external trigger can also be assigned to any element using only class names. Check out collapse-pro-matic advanced external triggers for more information and a working demo.

Collapse-O-Matic Centered Titlte

This title is Left
This is left stuff that makes the wonky wank wonder spank

To center the text first add the following to the theme’s style.css file:
.centron {
text-align: center;
}

Next, add the trigclass=”centron” attributes to the expand shortcode:
[expand title="This title is Centered" trigclass="centron"]

This title is Centered
This is the text that makes the baw-bitty-baw-ba-baw-ba-baw-baw ditty bitty baw ditty dong de up chuck the monkey

Note: if the default tag is not already set to div, the tag=”div” attribute will need to be added as well.

Collapse-O-Matic Top & Bottom Trigger Test

This is how to place a trigger at the top and bottom of a expand element:

[expand title="Read more..." swaptitle="Read less..." id="swine"]...content...
<span class="collapseomatic colomat-close" id="bot-swine">Read less...</span>
[/expand]
Read more...
