My expandable / collapsable menu cookie for unique id is not working when I click a link on my site.

I'm using the jquery cookie plugin from github - github.com/carhartl/jquery-cookie
I have a jquery menu that grabs a unique id from the open / close buttons. When refresh after clicking any one of these, the cookie triggers the show / hide as I left it. However, when I hit a link (within the page), it either completely ignores the cookie setting and/or executes the show /hides from the previous refresh.

The cookie is being triggered in the if(_slider.length). Then the jquery for the menu is checking a.open-close, a.open-close-inner, a.open-close-inners & a.opener ids against the assigned cookie. If the cookie =  'hidden', the _activeClass is removed and the parent enclosing block remains collapsed.
jQuery(function(){
	clearInputs();
	initTabs();
	initOpenClose();
});

 
// clear inputs
function clearInputs(){
	jQuery('input:text, input:password, textarea').each(function(){
		var _el = jQuery(this);
		var _val = _el.val();
		_el.bind('focus', function(){
			if(this.value == _val) this.value = '';
		}).bind('blur', function(){
			if(this.value == '') this.value = _val;
		});
	});
};

// init tabs
function initTabs() {
	jQuery('ul.tabset').each(function(){
		var _list = jQuery(this);
		var _links = _list.find('a.tab');

		_links.each(function() {
			var _link = jQuery(this);
			var _href = _link.attr('href');
			var _tab = jQuery(_href);

			if(_link.hasClass('active')) _tab.show();
			else _tab.hide();

			_link.click(function(){
				_links.filter('.active').each(function(){
					jQuery(jQuery(this).removeClass('active').attr('href')).hide();
				});
				_link.addClass('active');
				_tab.show();
				return false;
			});
		});
	});
}

// init open close
function initOpenClose(){
	// 4 level
	jQuery('div.block-inners > ul > li').OpenClose({
		opener: '.opener',
		slider: '> div.block-slide'
	});
	// 3 level
	jQuery('div.slide-block-inner').OpenClose({
		opener: '.open-close-inners',
		slider: '> div.block-inners'
	});
	// 2 level
	jQuery('div.slide-block-inner').OpenClose({
		opener: '.open-close-inner',
		slider: '> div.slide'
	});
	// 1 level
	jQuery('div.slide-block').OpenClose({
		opener: '.open-close',
		slider: '> div.block'
	});
}

// open-close plugin
jQuery.fn.OpenClose = function(_options){
	// default options
	var _options = jQuery.extend({
		activeClass:'active',
		opener:'.opener',
		slider:'.slide',
		slideSpeed: 400,
		animStart:false,

Can i see a copy of your source code where you are calling the jquery functions?  Either here or a link to your web server would work.

Before I pass up the url, I was doing some research and it turns out there has been some issues with chrome triggering cookie events with this jquery script.

I moved the check for the cookie outside of the menu options and manually added the classes there. Also, once I assigned the path: "/" then it was responding much better. No issues in firefox or safari, but chrome is a little buggy.

In addition to the previous revision, I simplified the check script done to one jquery .each function
Each level of the menu has a unique wrapper, so I just added an additional class to all the collapse expand button (.wwp-menu-select). Once that was done, the simplified check looks at the wrapper div else the wrapper li for the "active" class. This is working in FF // Chrome // Safari // IE

jQuery('.wwp-menu-select').each(function() {
                    var menuContent = jQuery.cookie(jQuery(this).attr('id'));
              if (menuContent == "hidden") {  
                            jQuery(this).html("+");
                            if(jQuery(this).parent().parent("div").hasClass("active")) {
                        jQuery(this).parent().parent("div").removeClass("active");  
                  }else if (jQuery(this).parent().parent("li").hasClass("active")){
                        jQuery(this).parent().parent("li").removeClass("active");
                  }
              }
      });
jQuery(function(){
	clearInputs();
	initTabs();
	initOpenClose();
});

 
// clear inputs & trigger cookie show hide for menu
function clearInputs(){
	jQuery('.wwp-menu-select').each(function() { 
			  var menuContent = jQuery.cookie(jQuery(this).attr('id')); 
              if (menuContent == "hidden") {  
  				  jQuery(this).html("+");
  				  if(jQuery(this).parent().parent("div").hasClass("active")) {
                  	jQuery(this).parent().parent("div").removeClass("active");  
                  }else if (jQuery(this).parent().parent("li").hasClass("active")){
                  	jQuery(this).parent().parent("li").removeClass("active");
                  }
              } 
	});

	jQuery('input:text, input:password, textarea').each(function(){
		var _el = jQuery(this);
		var _val = _el.val();
		_el.bind('focus', function(){
			if(this.value == _val) this.value = '';
		}).bind('blur', function(){
			if(this.value == '') this.value = _val;
		});
	});
};

// init tabs

					jQuery(jQuery(this).removeClass('active').attr('href')).hide();
				});
				_link.addClass('active');
				_tab.show();
				return false;

The solution is direct from my javascript customization, and explains how to simplify code so the jquery cookie script is triggered correctly.
