Quick Test – Collapse by Class

This is a test on how to handle retroactively applying a collapse-expand feature to any element with a defined class.

The idea is to first have an element with a specific class that holds a heaping amount of content, like the one below:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Ok, that’s a lot of text. Now within collapse-pro-matic check for this class, if found append or prepend a trigger and then adjust the target to a defined minimum height.

This is something that would be applied to every element with the defined class, across all posts, future, present and past.

Collapse-O-Matic Button

[expand title="Push me" swaptitle="Push" trigclass="noarrow my_button" tag="div"]this is the hidden content[/expand]
Push me
this is the hidden content

CSS

.my_button {
background-color: white;
color: black;
border-radius: 6px;
font-family: by;
padding: 5px;
width: 99px;
text-align: center;
border: 2px solid #98FB98; /* Green */
}

.my_button.colomat-hover{
background-color: #eb234c; /* red */
color: white;
text-align: center;
}

Archive-Pro-Matic Decade Filters

As of Archive-Pro-Matic version 1.1.10 we have added two filters two filters for the decade archives list:

Filter: apm_decade_archive_list


apm_decade_archive_title is used to display how the decade appears in the archive list. The default list is YYYY’s, for example:
2010’s

2000’s

apply_filters('apm_decade_archive_list', $text, $decade);

This filter can be used to change how the decade list is displayed by adding the following to the function.php file in the child-theme.

add_filter( 'apm_decade_archive_list', 'list_decade_range', 10, 2 );
function list_decade_range($text, $decade){
   $text = $decade.' - '.($decade + 9);
   return $text;
}

Filter: apm_decade_archive_title

apm_decade_archive_title is used to display the title of the decade archive page. The default title is The YYYY’s for example:
The 2000’s

apply_filters('apm_decade_archive_title', $title, $decade);

And would be used by adding the following to the child theme’s function.php file:

add_filter( 'apm_decade_archive_title', 'decade_range_title', 10, 2 );
function decade_range_title($title, $decade){
   $title .= ' ('.$decade.' - '.($decade + 9).')';
   return $title;
}

Here is an example shortcode that will list an archive of posts by decade:

[archives type="decade"/]
this is a caption

This is a test of the new T(-) Opening Hours add-on plugin for T(-) Countdown Control.
It will allow a countdown schedule to be defined by referencing a weekly opening schedule.

Collapse-O-Matic Expand Title with HTML Formatting

Here is a test with and expand and subexpand elements with html formatting in the Title Attribute:

[expand title="I am <b>bold</b>"]...[/expand]

I am bold

I am also bold
hey strong dude

I am italics
hey Italian dude

I am deleted
phone is ringing

However, this is not supported across all WordPress versions. Collapse-O-Matic version 1.3.6 offers some new placeholders to use as a work-around for WordPress installations that will not allow html in the title, swaptitle, startwrap, endwrap, excerpt and swapexcerpt attributes:
%(% = <
%)% = >
%{% = [
%}% = ]

[expand title="I am %(%b%)%bold%(%/b%)%"]...[/expand]

I am bold
Hidden Content

Collapse Commander

One benefit of using Collapse Commander is that all attributes are not processed through the shortcode attribute filters. This means that both HTML and Shortcodes are fully supported, without the need to further clutter the expand shortcode attributes with placeholders.

Collapse-O-Matic Excerpt Shortcode Test

This is a standard collapse element with an plain text excerpt:
[expand title="trigger text" excerpt="excerpt text"]target content[/expand]

I am a little tea-pot
short and stout
Here is my handle, here is my spout.

p.s. the word little is wrapped in em tags:
I am a <em>little</em> tea-pot

Nesting Shortcodes In Shortcode Attributres

Now, what if we wanted to have the excerpt contain a shortcode…
well, no, The shortcode parser does not accept square brackets within attributes. But, what if we used placeholders?!

Placeholders

As of Collapse-O-Matic v1.6.3d placeholders have been added as a work-around that allows both HTML and shortcodes to be used within the title, swaptitle, startwrap, endwrap, excerpt and swapexcerpt attributes:
%(% = <
%)% = >
%{% = [
%}% = ]

So the simple syntax would look like this:
[expand title="trigger text" excerpt="%{%some_shortcode attribute='value'%}%"]target content[/expand]

Keep in mind that if double quotes are used to wrap the attribute, then single quotes must be used inside the nested shortcode’s attributes. Or, as the example below shows, single quotes used to wrap the attribute value, and double quotes inside the nested shortcode’s attributes.

So, a real world example would look like this:
[expand title='I am a little donkey' excerpt='%{%caption id="attachment_1493" align="alignnone" width="150"%}%<a href="https://spacedonkey.de/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/donkey5n-3.jpg"><img src="https://spacedonkey.de/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/donkey5n-3-150x150.jpg" alt="short and stout" width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1493" /></a> short and stout%{%/caption%}%']stuck in a manhole until someone pulled me out.[/expand]

I am a little donkey
short and stout
short and stout
stuck in a manhole until someone pulled me out.

HTML in Attributes

On some versions of WordPress the use of HTML in shortcode attributes is limited or not at all supported. In these cases you can use placeholders as a work-around, like so:

[expand title="Trigger Text %(%strong%)%Bold%(%/strong%)%"]Hidden Content[/expand]

Trigger Text Bold
Hidden Content

Yes it’s a bit messy but it does work. Let’s see if Collapse Commander can help clean up this clutter.

Collapse Commander

And finally here is a test using the Collapse Commander add-on plugin:
[expand cid="1537"/]

Oh, very cool! As an added bonus, there is no need to use placeholders. Collapse Commander accepts the full shortcodes in the excerpt fields, as shown in the following screenshot. Check it out:
