Added Jumbotron, Accordian, etc - can't find where to set the details of those items, plus they don't seem to work in preview mode...?

Hi David,

You have to goto inspector icon and you will notice that there are some eyes icons there with crosses through them. Just click on the eye and it will unhide it from view.

Hmmm. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place - but I'm looking in inspector with the jumbotron container selected, and no eye? (see attached)

If you are referring to the "preview" next to "preview on" that is probably used mainly for moving the menu out of the way so you can see a larger preview static view. Maybe there is more to that but I dont use it much.

In order for your Accordion to work you will need to "preview on" a browser because the Accordion will probably need to have the bootstrap.js and/or jquery.js loaded to work.

All the settings for css and classes are handled in the design layout for both the Accordion and the Jumbotron.

The jumbotron is a container with text in it. You will not see anything hidden on that component (no eye).

The accordion however does have the dropdown containers with information hidden. It will show hidden (with eye) on each of the containers as Steve mentioned. If you click and unhide you will see the text in the design layout for editing.

Dave,

There are a number of ways to get to the details for container, elements, components, etc., but here is how I normally do it:

After clicking the item you want to edit in the inspector tree, click on the little pencil icon to edit the details. This will bring up a number of sections related to the item selected in the tree.

Once you accomplish the impossible, then you can move on to the hard stuff!
