Expanding Text plugin for WordPress

This WordPress plugin allows you to create sections of text in your post or page which expand/collapse when clicked on. You simply wrap the special tags around your text, and set the ‘expand link’ (the link visitors click on to show the text). If your visitors do not have javascript enabled, the ‘expand link’ is not shown, and the text is displayed normally.

Change Log

  • 02-19-09 Version 1.2 – Changed wrapper tags *must change existing links when updating!* Fixed validation errors, and issues switching between code and html view
  • 10-09-08 Version 1.1 – Now works properly when the exact same expanding text is used more than once on the page
  • 08-14-08 Version 1.0 – First release

Installing

  • Download the above file, rename it from .txt to .php, and upload it to your plugins directory.
  • Enable the plugin.
  • Optional: Add the CSS to your theme’s style sheet to make it look nice (see the customization section below).

Usage

To make your text expand/collapse, use the following format in your post or page:

Important: Make sure you add this using the html/code editor in WordPress, not the visual editor. In new versions of WordPress, just click the ‘html’ button above the edit box. If you use the visual editor it will not work, as the actual code you entered will be seen on the page, instead of being processed by the script.

Notice: If upgrading from version 1.1, make sure you change your existing code to match the examples below. The tags have been changed to cause less issues.

[DDET (expand link text)]
(Text to expand)
[/DDET]

Example:

[DDET Click to expand!]
Here is your text!
[/DDET]

You can add as many sections of expanding text as you like.

Demo

Here you can see the plugin in action:

Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text! Here is your text!

Customization

To style the expanding text boxes, you must add the .ddet_div class to your theme’s css file. Here is an example:

.ddet_div {
  margin: 8px 0 0 12px;
  padding: 8px;
  background: #F4F4F4;
  border: 1px solid #DDDDDD;
}
