Hi there!

First of all, i'm a complete dumb on HTML... so, apologize me for any stupid things i say here... I'm posting this here, because i belive that it's JAVASCRIPT, so here it goes:

I did follow this tutorial:


So far so good. I'd manage to make it work just fine. There is only one thing about it. I would like that the last opened menu close when anotherone is opened, because you can actually open 2 items of the menu, and i only want that just one can be opened at the time.

You can see an example here:


Well, i really hope that anyone can help me out here, and by the way, sorry about my english, i'm not an expert in english too...

Thanks in advance!! ;)

I think all you need to do is close all the other ones when you click on one... like this:


Just close all the other divs as you open the current one.

Just out of curiosity, what language do you speak?

Ok, thnaks for the help, but or i'm not doing it in the correct way, or it's not working... It's funny, because this already suposed to work, see these code parts here:

var collapseprevious="no"


function expandcontent(cid){
if (typeof ccollect!="undefined"){
if (collapseprevious=="yes")

What am i doing wrong? :(

P.S. - djr33, i'm portuguese, so i speak portuguese :)

From what I can tell it's working on my end. If it's still not working on your end try doing what he just told you. :)

Well... after some experiments, and some opinions from friends of mine, i made a clean up on the code, and resolve the problem by creating a function that closes colapses the contents no matter what, unless you click on them...

It worked... :) But still, thanks a lot!! :)
