QuickAccord is a simple, accessible, cross-browser jQuery accordion plugin which allows to show / hide sectioned content using CSS3 transitions.

    <a href="#accordion1" class="accordion-trigger" data-accord-group="group1">Accordion 1</a>
    <div id="accordion1" class="accordion-content collapsed">
      <p>Content 1</p>
    <a href="#accordion2" class="accordion-trigger" data-accord-group="group1">Accordion 2</a>
    <div id="accordion2" class="accordion-content collapsed">
      <p>Content 2</p>
    <a href="#accordion3" class="accordion-trigger" data-accord-group="group1">Accordion 3</a>
    <div id="accordion3" class="accordion-content collapsed">
      <p>Content 3</p>

2. The basic CSS for the accordion. Override or modify the styles as shown below and then insert them into your existing CSS file.

  border-radius: 8px;
  border: 3px solid #D0D0D0;

a {
  font-weight: bold;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  color: #FF3311;
  text-decoration: none;

.accordion-trigger {
  background-color: #D0D0D0;
  display: block;
  padding: 24px;
  position: relative;

.accordion-trigger:after {
  display: block;
  position: absolute;
  right: 16px;
  top: 50%;
  transform: translateY(-50%);
  font-size: 2em;

  -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;

.accordion-content.expanded { height: auto; }

.accordion-content.collapsed { height: 0; }

.accordion-content p { padding: 16px; }

3. Put jQuery library and the QuickAccord's script at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="//"></script>
