Scripty Accordion opens but does not close

Am using this action to give “read more” functionality to in-line construction that keeps you on the same page without a pop-up by first expanding to reveal and then hiding additional content. Scripty Accordion does the first but not second part of its job.

FYI the “show/hide more content” trigger (a paragraph) appears just below the first row of primary text on the linked example. It triggers the appearance, but not the disappearance, of the following div.

Any suggestions as to how to get it to do the second half of its job? Or of a way other than Scripty Accordion to achieve the intent?

Also, I note in the link url I have provided, that because I have used more than one word in the folder names that the auto CSS Menu action uses, I get "%20"s in the url. As one can’t enter titles and file names for folders in the Inspector, Is there a workaround that allows multi-word folder titles to be normally spaced words when they appear in nav menus, but not appear with %20s in the url?

You shouldn’t really be using folder/file names with spaces in them or any characters other than Alphanumerics (A-Z, a-z, 0-9) or _underscores or - hyphens. Some Browsers/OS can get upset by them.

Right. And you shouldn’t put underscores or hyphens in nav elements that should read like they are designed for humans and not for machines. That is what I am trying to solve for: FW uses the same element for a use to be optimized for humans and another use to be optimized for computers.

On the Scripty Accordion question, I realize that the action doesn’t close an item by clicking on it, but rather by clicking on another trigger. Giving me an idea…will report back.

ScriptyAccordion is not really designed to show/hide a single item like this - it is really set up more for multiple items like in a list of Q and A items.

Instead have a look at the Read More action but it creates a LightBox effect for the extra text - http://actionsforge.com/actions/readmore

Or if you just use Target Show/Hide on an inline Html container.

How do I make an inline HTML container a target? When I select the HTML container I want to show/hide to apply a Target Action to it, no option appears in the dropdown Action Item menu. I suspect this is because it is neither an image nor a layer (though it is CSS).

And to ask about a bit of icing on the cake: can I add a “close” trigger element inside the HTML container target opened by the “read more” trigger that makes the HTML container no longer display?

This seems to work, though a bit of a hack. I used Scripty Accordion to open the div, then some extended CSS I found on another FWTalk post to click on the div to close it. I also specified the cursor over the div be a pointer.
