Spry – Linking to a Non-Default Panel

So you like those fancy-schmancy Spry accordions, but have the need to deep-link into closed accordion panels from an external page? That’s a pretty obvious use case usability-minded designers (and their clients) may require, and Dreamweaver and PHP guru David Powers has a great tutorial on just that topic on his Foundation Dreamweaver blog – “Linking to a non-default panel”.

If you’re strictly using the visual Spry tools in Dreamweaver to author, you’re probably missing a lot of the hidden gems in SpryURLUtils.js (included with the Spry 1.6 update), and this is a great tutorial for taking that first dive into the extra goodies v1.6 provides.
