How do I make a collapsible page section?


TomTech

Question

Site URL: https://www.kvmexhibits.org/close-to-home

Hi,

I've seen a couple different examples of other people trying to achieve this, but I haven't come across a successful code yet. On the URL I provided, I have the beginnings of a workaround for an individual page that will contain a lot of text. In the second section down, I used markdown and a code block to make a some simple expanding headings. However, I would like to do this with an ENTIRE section. Ideally, each section would be a background image, heading, and a plus sign. Super ideally, once expanded, the section would have a minus sign at the top and bottom. I wouldn't just be expanding text however. I wish to expand images, galleries, etc. Is this possible?

Possible I'd say yes.

One way to do it might be to have a page section with the first block a text block with your toggle text or symbol in it.

Then follow with whatever other block you want.

Then your CSS would hide all but the first block of the page section.

Then you would have some code like the following.

<script>

  $( '.page-section:nth-of-type( 1 ) .html-block:first' ).click ( function ( ) {
  
      $( this )
      
        .nextUntil ( '.page-section' )
        
        .slideToggle ( 'slow' );
        
      } );
      
  </script>

This is not a fully fleshed out piece of code. It is just one possible starting point.

If you were going to toggle all page sections then you wouldn't need the nth. If you needed only some then add more. Something like...

const selector = '.page-section:nth-of-type( 1 ) .html-block:first, ' +
  '.page-section:nth-of-type( 3 ) .html-block:first';

$( selector ).click...

I tested this code out here and it seemed to work well.

Hi thanks for the reply. I'm confused on these directions.

1. What "your CSS" are you referring to? I was unsure, so I might be skipping that part. Instead, I made a new demo page and added 2 sections. In the first section, I added one text block that says "Expand Next". Then I added a second section (just a generic Headline template).

2. Where does your following code code? In 'Page Settings - Advanced'?

Based on what I described above, nothing happens - but I'm sure I have it wrong. Thanks again.

This is for v7.1.

Hi there,

This worked perfectly and was exactly what I was looking for! Thank you.

One add on I was wondering if you'd be able to help with - would a "Close Section" button placed at the bottom be able to be added? So that at the bottom of each collapsible section, this button placed at the bottom would collapse the section and the page would appear in it's original state.

Thanks in advance.

Possible I think. I started to tinker with some code and it seemed to be going well. But I ran into a oddity with jQuery's prevUntil. For the first page section it works a treat and closes up the section. On the second section the first block being used as the toggler is getting hidden. Not good. Essentially the prevUntil is ignoring the selector I'm asking it to ignore and including it for hiding. As far as I can tell the two sections are basically identical in structure. Not sure if there is a bug in my code or in jQuery.

So for now it's a no go until I figure out what is happening.

For those that are into the technical stuff. I've created a minimal test case document that shows the issue.

            .css ( 'display', 'none' )
            
            .prevUntil ( '.block:first' )

Load this up in your browser and click on the second Collapse. All the "blocks" will be hidden. Click on the first Collapse and the first "block" will not be hidden as I would expect.

Hi,

Thank you for this, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. I added it right below the initial code in the page's header code injection that creates the collapsible section in the first place. 

Added this new code but it doesn't seem to do anything as the last block in each page's section just appears normal and does not have any functionality.

Sorry, I had done so but reverted back to the first code you sent as the updated one made the first text block of the section that triggers the dropdown look wonky (see screenshot) and the button at the bottom was not functioning correctly. It would close the section, but the 2nd last block would still be showing after collapsing using the bottom button.

I had to revert back so that the site looked right for the client. I've gone and duplicated everything on a test site:

Please see my first July 19th post for link to updated code. Give the code a go on your duplicate site and let us know how it goes.

This worked perfectly! Thank you so much!

is there any way to make it so the code avoids the page's first section?

I've have updated my code. It should now avoid all page sections that don't have the code block set with <div class="twc-psst"></div>.

Thank you by the way for reporting issues! I do test my code but there is nothing like real world use to shake out the bugs.

Hi @creedon I am also trying to make sections collapse and expand, but am having trouble getting the code to work. I think I may be injecting the code incorrectly. 

 

I have a parallax scrolling brine template with big section banners. I want to have a button in each section to show/collapse the section below it. Similar to the site below: 

https://www.liorraz.co.il/

Could you help with this? I have a duplicate of my site set up and have been testing out different codes I have been finding and i've been unsuccessful. Lots of tutorials for FAQ question expanding, but that's not what I want.
