An easy jQuery plugin to create a multi-level and fully responsive accordion menu (dropdown list) from any nested Html elements.

Basic Usage:

1. Load the jQuery accordion plugin's CSS in the header of your web page.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery.accordion.css">

2. Load the jQuery library and the jQuery accordion plugin's Javascript in the footer.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.accordion.js"></script> 

3. Create the Html structure for a 3-tier accordion menu as follows.

<section id="demo" data-accordion-group>
  <section data-accordion>
    <button data-control>Accordion 1</button>
    <div data-content>
      <article>Item</article>
      <article>Item</article>
      <article data-accordion>
        <button data-control>2nd Level</button>
        <div data-content>
          <article>Item</article>
          <article>Item</article>
          <article data-accordion>
            <button data-control>3rd Level</button>
            <div data-content>
              <article>Item</article>
              <article>Item</article>
              <article>Item</article>
            </div>
          </article>
        </div>
      </article>
      <article>Item</article>
      <article>Item</article>
      <article>Item</article>
    </div>
  </section>
  <section data-accordion>
    <button data-control>Accordion 2</button>
    <div data-content>
      <article>Item</article>
      <article>Item</article>
      <article>Item</article>
    </div>
  </section>
</section>

4. Initialize the accordion menu with default options.

$(document).ready(function() {
$('#demo [data-accordion]').accordion();
});

5. Options and defaults.

$(document).ready(function() {
$('#demo [data-accordion]').accordion({
// Transition speed on miliseconds.
transitionSpeed: 300, 

// CSS value for easing
transitionEasing: 'ease', 

// CSS selector for the element acting as a button inside accordions.
controlElement: '[data-control]', 

// CSS selector for the element containing hide/show content.
contentElement: '[data-content]', 

// CSS selector for a parent element containing a group of accordions.
groupElement: '[data-accordion-group]', 

// Opens a single accordion a time. 
// If false, multiple accordions can be open a time.
singleOpen: true 
});
});
