BeliefMedia Simple Accordion

This documentation supports an article on our blog introducing how to include basic accordions on your website that reference various post types, and include excerpts of post content. This is an abbreviated version of the plugin clients enjoy, which is used mainly to support the inclusion of FAQs into their website. The plugin is limited in its functionality but still includes a large number of features.

The accordions are introduced on our blog in an article titled "Simple Accordion FAQ and Links in WordPress".


The plugin requires BeliefMedia Core. The Core plugin enables updates, but will also register you with an API Key. If you do not wish basic registration details sent to us upon registration then please do not download the plugin. You should also ideally download and install BeliefMedia Simple Cache to take advantage of the caching feature.

The Result

The most common use of the shortcode is to return a number of posts associated with a particular category. For example, [bm_accordion term="finance"] returns the following:

A short time ago we introduced the revised partner website plugin for mortgage brokers that allows them to send and globally update content on partner websites (replacing a partner landing page system we've used for well over 10 years). While that plugin and program has proved a massive success, what we're about to introduce… [ Learn More ]

Our partner programs are ridiculously effective, and they return more genuine 'formalised' partners than any of the fluffy 'programs' floating around the market. Overlapping with our Saturn and media programs, the initial contact we have with potential partners and introducers is virtually 100% effective - it's only after that initial contact that the… [ Learn More ]

Some time back we introduced the version controlled download manager made available within Yabber , with the system making various facilities and full document tracking available on your mortgage broker website . However, the method of including actual downloads in bulk on the website was a little crude in that very little automation was applied.… [ Learn More ]

Brokers are attracted to us because we provide a solid, entirely future-proof, and scalable digital foundation to their business that returns more conversions. It doesn't matter if your efforts are directed at Facebook marketing, SEO , or social , our totally integrated tools are designed to work in company to provide a better… [ Learn More ]

Some time back we looked at the importance of keeping any domain you register alive . Allowing a third-party to register any expired domain not only assigns potential link-value back to the 'other' website (via 301 redirects, and only if links appear elsewhere on the web), but it also diminishes your brand value and enables… [ Learn More ]

Instagratify is an Instagram=based social media tool that distributes your Instagram posts, albums, and video content (in a variety of formats) to various social networks based on the hashtags in the Instagram post. The tool is just one part of our social media toolkit but it's the one feature used more often than any other,… [ Learn More ]

To address the qualify of poor digital representation in the finance industry we will progressively introduce features into our Core plugin that seeks to provide a Facebook -based lead-generation that is superior to any paid program in the industry. As introduced in an article introducing the top-of-funnel subscription experience , there's various interactions that perform… [ Learn More ]

Some time back we introduced a basic image graph API that returned basic graphing in image format - perfect for inclusion in website articles, documents, and reports. We use the graphs in our Venus , Fact Find , and other reports, and we've found that some of our clients have seen success by way… [ Learn More ]

My opinion on fact find reports is one that goes against popular industry opinion. Based on my own experience as a broker, and with nearly 25 years supporting brokers' marketing efforts to justify my claim, I can categorically state that fact find reports as currently used by the industry rarely serve a purpose unless they're… [ Learn More ]

We've actually included the attributes of margin_bottom="30" hover="#B6B6B6" selected="#C9C9C9" color_selected="000000" number="10" to alter the appearance, and limit the number of results to just 10 articles.

In the next example we'll use the accordion as if it were part of a series or similar where numbering might be required. Using default styling, and limiting results to just 5 results, the shortcode of [bm_accordion cpt="post" taxonomy="category" term="api" number="5" icon="0"] (note the icon attribute of '0' - this creates numbering).

Lenders will require you to purchase a rather costly LMI insurance product if they are lending you more than 80 percent of the value of your property (or you have a Loan to Value Ratio of more than 80%). The Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) is the amount you’re borrowing represented as a percentage of… [ Learn More ]

In this article we'll introduce you to our complimentary RBA Cash Rate and Exchange Rate graph WordPress website plugin. We'll also introduce basic graphing features that are built into the BeliefMedia Core plugin - a plugin that's required before any of our other finance plugins may be used. The plugin will return a naked RBA… [ Learn More ]

We talk all the time about how and why the default website we provide mortgage brokers converts far higher than other websites in the market, and how our conversion-optimised website is integral to your marketing funnel, and this article introduces you to one of our more powerful website features that literally changes the digital… [ Learn More ]

This article introduces a single component of Yabber's Tag: broad data integration with your website . In the first of many articles that deal with integrating real-time Australian banking data and information pages into your website, we'll show you how to include a single product panel in any post or page with real-time interest rate… [ Learn More ]

Inflation is an increase in the level of prices of the goods and services that households buy. It is measured as the rate of change of those prices. Typically, prices rise over time, but prices can also fall (a situation called deflation). The most well-known indicator of inflation is the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which… [ Learn More ]

The plugin is very lightweight as it's rendered with just CSS and a few lines of code. There are no JavaScript dependencies or libraries.

Shortcode Attributes

The following attributes may be used to alter the appearance of the accordion. Note that the style is inline; not ideal... but it works.


The color of the accordion text. Defaults to #FBFBFB.


The accordion title color when that accordion is selected and opened. Defaults to #FBFBFB.


The colour of the accordion panel when hovering over with your mouse cursor.


The colour of the accordion panel when selected and opened. The above color_selected attribute should be in contrast.


The number of words to include in the accordion excerpt. Defaults to 55.


The height of the accordion panel. Defaults to 40.


The more attribute alters the "Learn More" text that will navigate the user to the destination page.


The icon to use for each accordion. Limited in the general plugin, you should generally use a HTML attribute or font awesome icon.


If you're a Yabber user that is using this plugin on a website that doesn't have the BM Plugin installed, you may still retrieve custom stylistic profile with the profile attribute (so all others can be ignored).


The post type. Defaults to 'post'. In the BM plugin it will default to 'faq'. Can generally be left with the default setting.


The taxonomy type. Defaults to category. Can generally be left with the default setting.


The field that will be queried. This is set to slug and generally shouldn't be altered.


The term or a comma-delimited string of terms to query. This is the slug associated with a category, so it might look like term="cat-1,cat-2,cat-3".


The margin under the accordion container. Defaults to 30.


THa margin above the accordion container. Defaults to 30.


The number of results to return. By default it returns everything... not a great idea. You can limit with number="10.


The length of the title in the accordion. The title won't overlap (yet) so you should truncate to fit titles in each accordion container.


If Simple Cache is installed you may cache the results. This is a sensible idea as it minimises the load of your DB.
