Was struggling to locate a good accordion plug-in for Joomla. This is the real deal!

I am unsure if this is a result of a joomla skin/theme, but I am having difficulty with displaying the according properly.

Basically, i have followed the instruction/documentation that the author has provided. When i installed the plugin and used the default settings for everything I noticed that "icons" for the all of the included plugin themes were hanging off in the middle of nowhere.

There is an Exposure setting which acts like a "lightbox" where you click on the menu and everything else but that active menu goes dark. When using this option it highlighted & focused area is off centered and is much larger than the item itself. Needless to say i disabled the feature.

I then tried to make a custom theme using themeroller as instructed by the author. When i uploaded the theme and set it, none of the styling is present, nor does the jquery functions work properly.

At this point I am left with a dysfunctional plugin that cost me ~$30USD. The author's website offers no documentation on troubleshooting, absolutely zero support via their forum link.

I have attempted to contact the author via email/contact form and is currently awaiting response.

I will update when i receive that response
