Open in new window



I can set which menu is open (active) via eq(1) below.

$('#accordion').accordion({ active: '.heading:eq(1)' })

Open in new window


Is there an easy way to work out what menu should be open?

I can provide the pagename via PHP code, so dont need to work that out.  Just it's parent index position within the accordion.

var pagename = 'tankcleaning.html';

Open in new window



Is there an easy way to take tankcleaning.html and find it's parent location so I can set it as active?



Many thanks in adv

  $('#accordion').accordion();
  $("a[href='" + pagename + "']").closest("li.ui-accordion-group").find("a.ui-accordion-header").trigger("click")
  $('.href_accordion_works').click(function() {

Try this:
var curItem = $('#accordion a[href*="'+pagename+'"]').parents('li').eq(1);
$('#accordion>li').each(function(idx){
	if($(this).is(curItem)) $('#accordion').accordion( "option", "active", idx );
});

Are you aware that your code is broken in IE8 and IE9 because of the conditional comments? I assume they were part of a hack to support IE6 at some point. Simply replace each
<!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
