1) Script Title: Glossy accordion menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordionmenu-glossy.htm

3) Describe problem: First, this script is awesome! and works just like it is supposed to :) Thank you for creating it.

Heres the issue (I searched the forums first, but could not find the answer)
The script is in use here:http://www.traxxion.com/minigp.aspx
My client wants the header (green) to be able to not only expand but also go to a link when clicked, so that you don't have a redundant header and then a link (sub header) that says virtually the same thing.

Example:
Green: Racing Sport Bike (no link but does expand to include below)
Subhead: Racing Sport Bike home

My client would like:
Green: Racing Sport Bike (links and expands to include below)
Subhead: Racing Sport Bike home

Thanks so much!

Is this possible to do without changing alot of the coding and even some of the functionality?

Try changing your initialization code with the value in red below:


ddaccordion.init({
headerclass: "submenuheader", //Shared CSS class name of headers group
contentclass: "submenu", //Shared CSS class name of contents group
revealtype: "clickgo", //Reveal content when user clicks or onmouseover the header? Valid value: "click", "clickgo", or "mouseover"
mouseoverdelay: 200, //if revealtype="mouseover", set delay in milliseconds before header expands onMouseover
collapseprev: true, //Collapse previous content (so only one open at any time)? true/false
defaultexpanded: [], //index of content(s) open by default [index1, index2, etc] [] denotes no content
onemustopen: false, //Specify whether at least one header should be open always (so never all headers closed)
animatedefault: false, //Should contents open by default be animated into view?
persiststate: true, //persist state of opened contents within browser session?
toggleclass: ["", ""], //Two CSS classes to be applied to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["class1", "class2"]
togglehtml: ["suffix", "<img src='images/plus.gif' class='statusicon' />", "<img src='images/minus.gif' class='statusicon' />"], //Additional HTML added to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["position", "html1", "html2"] (see docs)
animatespeed: "fast", //speed of animation: integer in milliseconds (ie: 200), or keywords "fast", "normal", or "slow"
oninit:function(headers, expandedindices){ //custom code to run when headers have initalized
//do nothing
},
onopenclose:function(header, index, state, isuseractivated){ //custom code to run whenever a header is opened or closed
//do nothing
}
})
