I am using Word Presss 2.8.1 and a child theme based in Fusion 3.0.4.
I want to use this jquery accordeon effect on my sidebar. (//jqueryfordesigners.com/jquery-lo … van-damme/)
But I can’t make it work on Word Press.
I pasted the html code on sidebar.php and the corresponding css in style.css
The header.php already includes those lines of code:
< ?php wp_head(); ?>
So, I guess I don’t need to call the jquery script
I tried pasting the following code in different places: inside the <head></head> in the footer.php, I tried pasting it in the functions.php, and to include it in fusion.js, but nothing seem to work
I tried to make an external link to google in header.php
but nothing worked.
I have so many things to put in the sidebar. It would be wonderful if I could make it work. :-(
yea well there could be many issues here – but some of the common ones are:
2 types of library – you might have called in the library you are using and another that a widget or plugin is using… 2 different versions of jQuery loading can cause it to break. You could also be loading 2 different types of lib, like mootools and jQuery.
Is there anyway we could get a live link – it would probably help more. :)
I had a hard time yesterday migrating the site from my localhost to a server.
OK let’s see:
the html and css parts on the sidebar are ok
the accordeon effect code is also ok.
(I pasted it on a file.htm and it worked fine – it’s linked to jquery-1.3.1.min.js )
So, I think the problem really is on the link to that file.
On the header.php (on my child theme for the Fusion theme)
the template code calls
1- include a call to the file I need, on header.php:
2 – pasted after wp_head() — still in header.php
I also paste the same code in functions.php on the Fusion theme (to kind of register the new function
But it still doesn’t work.
The URL is:
Please, don’t give up on me. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks, for your kind attention.
The problem is that I want the first segmente of the sidebar to work like an accordeon. Right now, all the tabs are showing all the content. I want only on tab content to be viewable. All the code, I used is working well in an html file, the problem seems to arise in Word Press.
Besides, I am using Fusion theme that seems to have its own jquery customized and also calls the jquery included in WP.
So, when I want to call the js I need to make the script run, nothing happens.
What doctype and character encoding did you use in your html test?
It’s not even possible to validate your wordpress page due to some none utf-8 characters http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.idigitais.com.br%2Fwp%2F
I’m not 100% sure but I think this may be connected.
Thanks, apostrophe, for pointing it out. There were some many errors. I just finished validating the whole site.
The only errors I could not get rid of are injected by wp_banerize plugin . Apparently there is not an alt tag output for the pictures and some <li> tags on the sidebar (but I think they are important for the formatting of the accordeon thing I want to implement.
Anyway, validating and correcting the errors didn’t help the jquery animation.
Could you please check it out again?
Ok, well at least you validated.
So, out of desperation, try it using the older version of jQuery.
I am back after I eliminated ALL the errors. I received a beautiful green tab in validator! (So, proud of me and so grateful to you!).
But, I still have three problems:
1) the tab jquery thing. I tried including :
but it still didn’t work.
Is that the right way to do it? How do I include a call to the right jquery version? I tried mimicking the original code… without success.
2) In IE 7 and IE6 the site is are all messed up!
In IE7 the footer is right bellow the header messing up all the content. It was ok without the footer.
I tried the sticky footer trick (I followed Chris Coyler tutorial) and it did’t work.
In IE6 the footer does not show and the sidebar looks awful. It is appearing bellow the page and is messed up.
Hope you can help me. I updated everything. So you can check it at:
Thank you VERY much!
I don’t know where you are doing your validating biut I’m still getting 4 errors http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.idigitais.com.br%2Fwp%2F
Looks like you have one extra div closing tag in there, which is probably what’s messing up the layout in IE.
That’s fine, but the idea was to replace the newer jQuery not have both on the page.
