    Hey Sean,

    Dope plugin man! I’ve followed your instructions thoroughly but the toggle doesn’t seem to be working for me.

    I’m using Thesis + MD3, which includes Font Awesome. I pasted the code in the Thesis functions.php, even though Pearson has “// WARNING: Unless you just LOVE problems, DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!” in there haha

    I also copied the css over to my custom.css, but, no dice.

    The class scc-opened is default functionality so I don’t need to do anything with that right?

    I feel like I’m missing something,

    thanks for any help big guy,

    here’s a link to what I have so far (at bottom of post)

    What’s up, Chris?! Sorry for the delayed reply. I’m thrilled to see you putting the plugin to use. That’s actually the first time I’ve seen it out in the wild. 😀

    The reason it’s not working for you is because Thesis 2 works differently. You will definitely need to remove what you placed inside of Thesis’ functions.php file.

    Instead of the traditional way of adding functions to your theme, Thesis 2 sections them off into each individual skin. So every skin you have uploaded to Thesis 2 has a functions file of its own. It’s called custom.php and you can find it at wp-content -> thesis -> skins -> your_skin -> custom.php.

    That’s where you want to paste functions. If everything else is set up correctly, that should be all you need.

    Let me know!

    Ah, nice, I appreciate that man, I thought it had something to do with Thesis. I’ll remove that code asap.

    Yeah dude this plugin is bad ass. Anyone who is serious about blogging, or who wants to section their content off into series, should be using this thing.

    What I’m going to do is create some cornerstone-content landing pages, and then use this plugin so when people land on the article, they don’t have to keep going back to the landing page for the next article in the series. Hopefully it will keep people on the site longer. When I first saw it on BWPY, I didn’t realize it was a plugin and I was in my inspector trying to boost your code lmao, but I’m so glad it’s a plugin.

    One of my favorites already man!

    Haha!!! That’s good stuff. I actually needed this plugin when I was building BWPY because I had plans to launch with the course. So I refused to launch BWPY until the plugin, which happened to be my first, was done. There were a few other post series plugins out there but they didn’t do exactly what I needed.

    I’m glad you like it. I love the way you have it standing out at the bottom of the post. That’s awesome and the perfect place to put it for your needs.

    Let me know if you think it’s missing something or can be improved in any way, shape, or form. And thanks for using it!

    Yeah dude this thing is slick! I’m glad you built this because I think it can be huge for keeping people on a site

    For some reason though I still can’t get the toggle effect to jive. Maybe I’m skipping a step or something, but I did a little screen recording to show you what i’m doing

    Thanks for such a thorough response man

    That’s exactly what it was too, MD3 isn’t flossing the latest version of Font Awesome. Just updated it in my <head>, and the toggle is working perfectly now.

    Thanks again, I’m pumped to see how this plugin evolves over time!!

    Awesooooome glad that got it working.

    There’s some cool stuff for it in the works now and much more to come in the future. Stay tuned!
