Accordions

At present, WordPress does not natively offer accordion functionality. We have chosen to use the Atomic Blocks (AB) Accordion block for this purpose.

To add an accordion to your page: While you are on the page you wish to edit, click on the little [+] icon at the top left of your page. Type “accodrion” in the Block search field to filter all blocks by “accordion”. Select the “AB Accordion” block or the “Accordion__Two columns, title-accordion” if you want an accordion that takes up less of the page in a 2-column layout. The component will load into your page. If you chose the “Reusable” “Accordion__Two column… ” block, just click on the block you just loaded. The name of the block will show up over a light gray band above the block. Click on the three vertical dots […] and select “convert to regular block.” You are now ready to edit the quote placeholder text with your text.

If you chose the Atomic Blocks “AB Accordion”, just follow the prompts within the empty block to enter your text content. Your accordion will automatically be made. The title area just takes text input, but you can add text, images, video, tables, lists, and other content in the body of the accordion.

Repeat the steps above for each accordion row you wish to add.


Reusable Block Name: AB Accordion

“Accordion” is a component consisting of an “Accordion Title” and the accordion content. You stack them according to your content needs.

We are loving these accordion titles

Accordions are really useful when you have a lot of depth to your content and want to provide some organization to it.

Accordion title this is just placeholder text

You wouldn’t use accordions though if there wasn’t a lot of content within each accordion. That amount of content could be in a list or just subheads and text.
