Expanding Blocks

Blocks can be configured so that only the NAME of the block is visible until the user clicks on the block. Then, the hidden content is exposed.

Expanding Blocks

The ability to "bury" a large amount of content, but make it just "one click away" for a user can be a very effective way to manage your page. The expanding block opens up with a click and closes back down with another click. See the example below.

Hidden Content

Here are a few paragraphs of Lorem Ipsum text that we were hiding.

When you clicked on the title block above, it was exposed. Click on the title block again, and it's hidden away.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam fermentum vestibulum est. Cras rhoncus. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Sed quis tortor. Donec non ipsum. Mauris condimentum, odio nec porta tristique, ante neque malesuada massa, in dignissim eros velit at tellus. Donec et risus in ligula eleifend consectetur. Donec volutpat eleifend augue. Integer gravida sodales leo. Nunc vehicula neque ac erat. Vivamus non nisl. Fusce ac magna. Suspendisse euismod libero eget mauris.

Ut ligula. Maecenas consequat. Aliquam placerat. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Nulla convallis. Ut quis tortor. Vestibulum a lectus at diam fermentum vehicula. Mauris sed turpis a nisl ultricies facilisis. Fusce ornare, mi vitae hendrerit eleifend, augue erat cursus nunc, a aliquam elit leo sed est. Donec eget sapien sit amet eros vehicula mollis. In sollicitudin libero in felis. Phasellus metus sem, pulvinar in, porta nec, faucibus in, ipsum. Nam a tellus. Aliquam erat volutpat.

Implementing Expanding Blocks

In version 2.1 of Theme Press, implementing tabs and expanding blocks has been made into a simple pull-down menu. The menu appears on the controlling column for the block.

Selecting the "expanders" option in the "Tabbed Blocks" pull-down menu of the Handling section will cause all blocks in the column to become expanding blocks.

If you have a block in the column that you don't wish to be formatted as an expander, simply click the "Never Tabbed" option in the Handling section for that particular block.

If you need to implement expanding blocks in a version of Theme Press prior to v 2.1, please refer to this documentation.
