Accordion Panel Magic v1.0.8 update

This is a cumulative update and includes versions 1.0.4, 1.0.5, 1.0.6, 1.0.7, and 1.0.8

version 1.0.8

Fixes issue that caused Modify menu choice to be enabled - even if there was not an Accordion widget on the page.

version 1.0.7

If content panels are set to a height and overflow is set to auto, to allow fixed height and scrolling inside panels, full animation is now permitted in all browsers except for Firefox. Firefox continues, through version 3, to have severe overflow bugs so that browser is given a special filter to disable animation when overflow on the content panel is set to auto. Previously, in such a scenario, animation was disabled for all browsers.

version 1.0.6

Fixed Mac-Leopard issue - Heading text box needs an initial value.

version 1.0.5

Fixed template-based insertion when there are no editable regions in the <head> or when there is only 1 editable region on the page.

Fixed issue when another style sheet is inside the p7ap folder, and that style sheet is linked before the ap style sheet.

version 1.0.4

Updates APM to include an optional Current Marker feature that automatically highlights links in your page's Accordion Panel components that match the address of the current page. The system also opens the content panel that contains the matching link - automatically, when the page loads.


This Update requires that the full Accordion Panel Magic version 1.0.3, 1.0.4, 1.0.5, 1.0.6, or 1.0.7 is already installed on your computer. It will not work otherwise.

Do you need the update?

You only need to update If your current Accordion Panel Magic version is less than 1.0.8. To be certain, open Extension Manager and check your version number. If your current version is less than 1.0.8, you need to download the 1.0.8 Update

Tip: Save the downloaded update file to the same location that contains your original Accordion Panel Magic extension file. Should you ever need to re-install, install the original version first, then the update.


  1. Double-click the downloaded MXP update file: P7APM108UPD.mxp
  2. When prompted to overwrite existing files, choose Yes To All
  3. Restart Dreamweaver to complete the update process

DO NOT Uninstall your current version. This is an update and requires that a full version is already installed on your system for a proper update. After installing the update, Extension Manager will list both the orginal (full) version and the update version.

Using the current marker feature on existing pages

You only need to update existing pages if your current version of Accordion Panel Magic is version 1.0.3. If you are updating from a later version, you do not need perform any of the following procdures.

Open the Accordion Panel Magic interface and check the Use Current Marker option. You can set the option independently for any APM component on your page.

If your existing Accordion Panel Magic component was made using the original version (1.0.3) of the product, you will need to follow this procedure:

The system will generate new script and CSS files you and your current marker will work.

Don't forget to re-upload the p7ap folder to your web server.

Note: Depending on your Dreamweaver configuration you might not be able to see the current marker working in local previews. It will, however, work fine online.

Can I change the current mark style?

Yes. In your updated CSS file, locate the CSS rule named .p7ap_currentmark, and change it to your liking.

Can I use this feature in Templates?

Yes. Please click the Help button in the APM interface (after installing the update) for detailed steps on how to deploy in Templates and in cases where you want to open a content panel on page load that does not contain a link to the current page.
