Hi

YOur best bet would be Yootheme
http://www.yootheme.com/tools/extensions/yooaccordion

They have a module called YooAccordion which you can put modules in to

Alternatively the way to achieve this for free is to use

{loadposition X} where X is the module position you will assign to your module you want in the accordion.

Then assign your articles to accordion, and make the article content to have
{loadposition X}
{loadposition Y}
{loadposition Z}
etc


This means your modules will load into the article which in turn will load into the accordion achieving what you asked.

Hi, I'm not sure if this does what I want. I don't want to display articles or modules inside articles. This is all about modules. I have created 4 modules and I want to display them as accordion inside accordion "module" (not inside component, but inside module position).

Thank you!

Hi

neither use a component to achieve this.

http://www.yootheme.com/docs/home/item/how-to-set-up-the-yooaccordion

This shows how its setup.

The method of using an article is simply to allow the loadposition plugin to assign a module position which can be used by another module.

Both methods I can think of allow you to choose a category from articles so it auto populates the content in the accordian

I use this on a few sites.


I create the 4 modules I want assign each to a module position i.e accordion 1, 2, 3, 4

I create 4 articles accordion 1, 2, 3, 4 and assign to Category Accordion, Section Accordion
I add {loadposition accordionX} to each article where x is 1, 2 , 3, 4

I then create an accordion module and assign it to Accordion/Accordion for Section/Cateogry

and it automatically loads up the 4 modules into the accordion, there is no title or anything like a normal acticle.

I haven't found an accordion module which achieves this without using loadposition and article.

Alternatively you could I suppose hack an accordion module and add loadposition directly into the code which calls the article but it means hacking it more if you want a 5th and 6th module in future.

The beauty of the article way is if you want 4 one month and 3 the next you simply unpublish the article you dont want to appear.

I'm not sure if I understood you. I want to display 4 existing modules which come with one component I'm using. These modules can't be created again as articles.
This is what I'm trying to achieve. When I go to this page http://jobsearch.monster.com/PowerSearch.aspx?tjt=nurse&where=new%20york&rad=20&rad_units=miles&tm=60 on the left you have the accordion to list the filters. I want to do the same. I got each filter as separate module and want to display them like on the site.

The 4 current modules you speak of do you assign them to a module position like a normal module or is it inbuilt into the component page?

Can you tell me the system your using as it would give me a better idea.

http://www.stormitsolutions.com/portfolio.html

On the left of our site we use an accoridion menu from yootheme.

If you have the modules as seperate items which require a module position you can do above and it will add each of those to a differnt section of the accordion.

This would take me like 5 minutes to setup for you if its as you described.

I'm happy to do this as it wont take long, drop me an email on my site and ill do it for you and then you can see how it works.
