Making content easy to find with toggles and accordions

Article author
Stan Jobs

Toggles and accordions are a common element in web design. They allow for progressive disclosure — the ability to highlight important sections of content and allow visitors to reveal additional details with a click.

Accordions look and behave exactly like toggles except for the fact that only one within a given section can be open at a time.

Usage

Creating toggles within your articles is easy:

  1. When editing an existing article, create a list (<ul> or <ol> element) and click the Source Code (Code icon) button on the editor toolbar to view the source code of the page.
  2. Add the data-element="togggles" attribute to the list element.
  3. Add optional tab titles to each list item using the data-title attribute.
  4. To have the group of toggles behave as an accordion, use the data-accordion="true" attribute.
