Rather than having all of the panels collapsed when the page loads, I would like to have the first panel already open. After reading your answer to the question about having a single panel accordion closed when the page loads, I went to look at the content section for my accordion plugin. I do not get a check box in the header to have the panel active or not nor is there a reset button next to the "add" button. Is something wrong with my installation or do I have to activate this option somewhere within the plugin? I am using version 2.0.8.
Welcome to our forum,
the feature you are looking for only available in premium version of Accordions,
here is the pro version you may check it out
Please see the screenshot how does it works, also you can “Reset Active” to collapsed all.
If you need more help please let me know.
