Open a specific accordion panel with an external anchor link

I have a bootstrap accordion setup and working fine.

I need to have links on external pages which will:

A) Take you to the specified panel within the accordion

B) Open the specified panel

The link structure needs to be in this format (example):

Page.html#collapseTwo
(the ‘collapseTwo’ will change, of course, depending on the panel)

The HTML:

    <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/twitter-bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/twitter-bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

The JS:

  (function() {
    var searchTerm, panelContainerId;
    // Create a new contains that is case insensitive
    $.expr[':'].containsCaseInsensitive = function(n, i, m) {
        return jQuery(n).text().toUpperCase().indexOf(m[3].toUpperCase()) >= 0;
    };

    $('#accordion_search_bar').on('change keyup paste click', function() {
        searchTerm = $(this).val();
        $('#accordion > .panel').each(function() {
            panelContainerId = '#' + $(this).attr('id');
            $(panelContainerId + ':not(:containsCaseInsensitive(' + searchTerm + '))').hide();
            $(panelContainerId + ':containsCaseInsensitive(' + searchTerm + ')').show();
        });
    });
}());

Answer

You can use url parameters and do it.

Sample links:

(function() {
    var searchTerm, panelContainerId;
    // Create a new contains that is case insensitive
    $.expr[':'].containsCaseInsensitive = function(n, i, m) {
        return jQuery(n).text().toUpperCase().indexOf(m[3].toUpperCase()) >= 0;
    };

    $('#accordion_search_bar').on('change keyup paste click', function() {
        searchTerm = $(this).val();
        $('#accordion > .panel').each(function() {
            panelContainerId = '#' + $(this).attr('id');
            $(panelContainerId + ':not(:containsCaseInsensitive(' + searchTerm + '))').hide();
            $(panelContainerId + ':containsCaseInsensitive(' + searchTerm + ')').show();
        });
    });
  
  /* Function to get url parameter based on param name */
  function getUrlParameter(key) {
    key = key.replace(/[[]/, "\[").replace(/[]]/, "\]");
    var regex = new RegExp("[\?&]" + key + "=([^&#]*)");
    var results = regex.exec(window.location.href);
    if (results == null)
      return "";
    else
      return unescape(results[1]).replace(/<script.*>.*</script>/g, "");
  }
  
  var panelId = getUrlParameter('panel');
  if(panelId){
    var $panel = $('#'+panelId);
    $panel.addClass('in');

    $('html,body').animate({
       scrollTop: $panel.offset().top},
    'slow');
  }
  
}());
