Lightweight jQuery Accordion / Toggle Control Plugin - rjAccordion

rjAccordion is a jQuery accordion plugin which allows you to present collapsed content panels with smooth expand / collapse animations. Also provides a 'toggle' mode which allows you to expand multiple content panels at a time.

How to use it:

1. Create the accordion headers and panels as shown below:

<div class="accordion demo">
  <div class="accordion-section">
    <a class="accordion-section-header" 
       data-target="#accordion-1">Accordion #1</a>
    <div id="accordion-1" class="accordion-section-content">
        <p>Content 1</p>
  <div class="accordion-section">
    <a class="accordion-section-header" 
       data-target="#accordion-2">Accordion #2</a>
    <div id="accordion-2" class="accordion-section-content">
        <p>Content 2</p>
  <div class="accordion-section">
    <a class="accordion-section-header" 
       data-target="#accordion-3">Accordion #3</a>
    <div id="accordion-3" class="accordion-section-content">
        <p>Content 3</p>

2. Include the jQuery rjAccordion plugin after jQuery javascript library but before the closing body tag.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="path/to/rjAccordion.js"></script>

3. Initialize the accordion control by calling the function on the top container.


4. Add your own CSS styles to the accordion.

.accordion, .accordion * {
  -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
  -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
  box-sizing: border-box;

.accordion {
  overflow: hidden;
  box-shadow: 0px 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25);
  border-radius: 3px;
  background: #FC6D58;
  color: #fff;
  margin: 20px;
  width: 60%;

.accordion-section-header {
  width: 100%;
  padding: 15px;
  display: inline-block;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #C0392B;
  background: #E74C3C;
  transition: all linear 0.15s;
  font-size: 1.200em;
  color: #fff;
}, .accordion-section-header:hover {
  background: #DA4453;
  text-decoration: none;

.accordion-section:last-child .accordion-section-header { border-bottom: none; }

.accordion-section-content {
  padding: 15px;
  display: none;

5. Config the accordion plugin.


  // animation speed in ms
  transition_delay: 300,

  // true = diable the toggle mode
  toggle: true
