bbAccordion is a tiny, straightforward jQuery accordion plugin which enables the visitor to expand / collapse the associated content with a smooth sliding animation based on jQuery .slideUp() and .slideDown() methods.

How to use it:

1. Create an accordion component from plain html structure.

<div class="bbAccordion">
  <div class="accordion-head">
    <h2>Accordion Heading 1</h2>
  </div>
  <div class="accordion-content">
    Accordion Content 1
  </div>
</div>

<div class="bbAccordion">
  <div class="accordion-head">
    <h2>Accordion Heading 2</h2>
  </div>
  <div class="accordion-content">
    Accordion Content 2
  </div>
</div>

<div class="bbAccordion">
  <div class="accordion-head">
    <h2>Accordion Heading 3</h2>
  </div>
  <div class="accordion-content">
    Accordion Content 3
  </div>
</div>

2. Style the accordion component whatever you like.

.bbAccordion .accordion-head {
  padding: .4em .8em;
  cursor: pointer;
  border: 1px solid #24495d;
  border-radius: 5px;
  background: #56d0fe;
  background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #56d0fe 0, #4994bc 100%);
  background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0, #56d0fe), color-stop(100%, #4994bc));
  background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #56d0fe 0, #4994bc 100%);
  background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #56d0fe 0, #4994bc 100%);
