PJ jQuery UI Helper


This plugin allows you to use jQuery UI’s widgets with a simple to advanced shortcode in your pages or posts.

Here is a list of the current widgets and their corresponding shortcodes:

  • Dialog – Used with [pjjuh-dialog]contents[/pjjuh-tab] to create a button where the shortcode is inserted that will open a dialog with the contents of the tag (or you can set an attribute of page to a title of one of the pages on your site to load the contents of that page into the dialog that is opened from pressing the button). For more information on how to use this please visit my site.
  • Tabs – Used with [pjjuh-tab-group] and then [pjjuh-tab title=”tab-title”]contents[/pjjuh-tab] to create a tab with the title β€œtab-title” that contains the contents specified. For more information on how to use this please visit my site.
  • Accordion – Used with [pjjuh-accordion] and then [pjjuh-acc-section title=”section-title”]contents[/pjjuh-acc-section] to create a section with the title β€œsection-title” that contains the contents specified. For more information on how to use this please visit my site.

Widgets I hope to add in the near future are:

  • Tooltips

I also hope to allow more variations for the widgets in the near future.

How can I create a dialog?

Find where you would like to place the button, in that location (In Page/Post edit) insert [pjjuh-dialog]{contents}[/pjjuh-dialog] where {contents} is the contents you would like to have inside of your dialog.

How can I create tabs?

Find where you would like to place your tabs section, in that location (In Page/Post edit) insert [pjjuh-tab-group][pjjuh-tab title=’{tab-title}’]{contents}[/pjjuh-tab][/pjjuh-tab-group] where {contents} is the contents you would like inside of that tab and {tab-title} is the text that will show in the tab’s button. Take a look at screenshots for an example.
