Multiple Accordions on one Page

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Dear Joomshaper,

I am being seriously pestered by my users to supply two accordion-menus on one article-page. As the accordions are allocated by category I cannot see how this can be done. There is documentation saying you need to set an ID for each Accordion so that more than one can appear on one page. But I simply can't see how/where to set this.

I hope you can help me because this particular question/issue is the main reason why I paid for a Joomshaper subscription. All I would need is confirmation that this is possible and being pointed towards a HOWTO or to documentation.

Even if you confirm that the Accordion Module cannot handle multiple menus on one page that would help me because then I could clearly tell our users that this isn't possible.

Many thanks.

Yours,
Alan

PS: Or maybe I need to download/buy a "Professional Version"? I would be happy to do this.

Hi,
let me check it first, moment

---
p.s.
we do not have Pro version of that module.
As you may know, we are SP Page Builder focused right now.
Documentation was based on J2.5 version I guess.

Minute ago I made test with Joomla 3.9.5 + Helix Ultimate + SP Accordion J3 module
and I was able to see two modules with different style and content. No extra hacks, IDs.

Missing phrase "SP_READ_MORE" you can translate from Language Override section.

p.s.
SP Accordion -- is a free module, not premium. Updated 4 years ago.

Dear Paul,

Many thanks for your investigation and, indeed, this is exactly what we need.

But what syntax should I use to include and differentiate the extra accordions?

At the moment we add

{loadmodule sp_accordion}
to the page/article and, if the article is allocated to the same category as a particular accordion, the accordion displays. So we have multiple accordions on separate pages. That's good.

But when I tried to adjust the calling syntax to (for example)

{loadmodule myaccordion1}
, it didn't work.

So all I need is the calling/referencing syntax which differentiates the accordions.

I do hope that you (or another forum visitor) can help me.

Many thanks,
Alan

Dear Paul,

Excellent! Many thanks: That worked perfectly.

I have another point which is giving me problems: I would like to sort the "accordion items" but cannot find how to do that. In the documentation this doesn't seem to be mentioned and the accordions shown seem to all be sorted alphabetically.

I had thought I could change the article-sequencing but this only seems to work for "menus" and, of course, the accordion works with "Categories" where no sorting can be set (I believe).

Any tips here would be a great help.

Yours,
Alan

I cannot help, this module is old, not updated anymore.
Maybe you should consider alternatives

Hallo Paul,

OK, I understand.

However, this is a very nice feature that my users really like and it is a shame that it is falling out of Joomshaper's repertoire.

Thanks anyway,
Alan

I added to the wishlist, so if update would appear ... it should be included.
