Grouping with Rel vs Togglegroup Attbitues

Rel Attribute

Here is an example of using the rel attribute. Notice how selecting a member of one group will auto-collapse members of all other groups.

[expand title="Star Wars" rel="fiction" swaptitle="Not Star Trek"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Star Trek" rel="fiction"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Battlestar Galactica" rel="fiction"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Space Race" rel="history"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Ansari X Prize" rel="history"]Target Content[/expand]
Star Wars

Star Trek

Battlestar Galactica

Space Race

Ansari X Prize

Togglegroup Attribute

Here is an example using the togglegroup attribute. Members of multiple togglegroups may be open at the same time.

[expand title="Star Wars" togglegroup="togfiction"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Star Trek" togglegroup="togfiction"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Battlestar Galactica" togglegroup="togfiction"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Space Race" togglegroup="toghistory"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Ansari X Prize" togglegroup="toghistory"]Target Content[/expand]

Star Trek

Battlestar Galactica

Rel Highlander Grouping

Here is an example using the rel attribute with highlander grouping:

[expand title="Star Wars" rel="fiction-highlander" swaptitle="Not Star Trek"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Star Trek" rel="fiction-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Battlestar Galactica" rel="fiction-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Space Race" rel="history-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Ansari X Prize" rel="history-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
Star Wars
Target Content
Star Trek

Battlestar Galactica

Highlander Grouping using Togglegroup Attribute

[expand title="Monkeys" togglegroup="animal-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Donkeys" togglegroup="animal-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Tigers" togglegroup="animal-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Bears" togglegroup="animal-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Porsche" togglegroup="car-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Volvo" togglegroup="car-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Mercedes" togglegroup="car-highlander"]Target Content[/expand]

Group Attribute

This is a test of the group attribute which is being considered to replace rel, will be used as an alias for now:

[expand title="Star Wars" group="gfic" swaptitle="Not Star Trek"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Star Trek" group="gfic"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Battlestar Galactica" group="gfic"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Space Race" group="ghis"]Target Content[/expand]
[expand title="Ansari X Prize" group="ghis"]Target Content[/expand]
Star Wars
Target Content
Star Trek
Target Content
Battlestar Galactica
Target Content
Space Race
Target Content
Ansari X Prize
Target Content

Quick test to make to see if our ‘number’ issue has been fixed:

[expand title="123" rel="123"]this is a number group[/expand]
[expand title="456" rel="456"]this is also a number group[/expand]
123
this is a number group
456
this is also a number group

Archive-Pro-Matic – Quarterly and Seasonal Archives

Archive-Pro-Matic has two new archive types (Quarterly and Seasonally) and a couple new advanced shortcode attributes to manage seperators (sep) and sub options as described below:

Quarterly Archives

Example of the new quarterly archive type:

[archives type="quarterly" limit="10" /]

    Seasonal Archives

    Seasonal archives are a bit more complex. First the plugin is currently limited to only four (4) seasons per year. The season names and starting dates can be defined in the plugin options as shown in the following screanshot:

    Season names and dates are easily defined. Only the month and day is used, the year is ignored.

    Simple example of seasonal archives:

    [archives type="seasonally" limit="10" /]

      New Attribute: sub_options

      Setting sub_options to ‘true’ for quarterly or seasonally archive types will present the year with the quarterly or seasonal archives below like so:

      [archives type="seasonally" sub_options="true" limit="10" /]

        Of course this also works in a drop-down select element:

        [archives type="seasonally" format="option" sub_options="true" limit="10" /]

        However, when setting format=”option” the sub_options could use a little separation. Therefore we have created a new sep attribute:

        New Attribute: sep

        Same example as above, this time with some fancy sub_option separation, and highlight current season if on archive page:

        [archives type="seasonally" format="option" sub_options="true" sep="— " highlight="active-season" limit="20" /]

        Collapse-Pro-Matic Cookie Based Expand

        This is a demo of how to use a cookie to auto-collapse a expand element that is expanded by default. The idea is to set up an expand element this is expanded by default, but if a user collapses it once, it will no longer load auto-expanded for that user until the cookie expires.

        For example the following expand element should be auto-expanded until it is manually collapsed. After this, the element will remain collapsed when the page is revisited.

        [expand title="test" expanded="once" cookiename="my_cookie"]hidden content[/expand]
        test
        hidden content
