How To Make An Html Accordion

What is an Accordion?

Html accordions are html components that allow you see contents of a topic on a web page when you clicked on the Topic.

The contents remain hidden until you click on its related topic before it is revealed.

Accordions can help organize your webpage in a beautiful way and also economize space.  To make an HTML accordion, knowledge of HTML, CSS and little of JQUERY is required.
So let’s get started.


  1. First of all we create a div with a class “Accordion-Wrapper”.

<div class="accordion-wrapper"></div>

  1. Secondly we create another div with a class “accordion” then put it inside “accordion-wrapper”.

<div class="accordion-wrapper">

<div class="accordion"></div>


  1. Let’s create a topic and content div inside the accordion div. We will call the topic div “accordion-head” and content div “accordion-body”

<div class="accordion-wrapper">

                <!--first Accordion-->

<div class="accordion">

<div class="accordion-head">Topic 1</div>

<div class="accordion-body">content 1</div>



  1. Let’s add more accordion divs to the "accordion-wrapper".

<div class="accordion-wrapper">

                <!--first Accordion-->

<div class="accordion">

<div class="accordion-head">Topic 1</div>

<div class="accordion-body">content 1</div>


                <!--second Accordion-->

<div class="accordion">

<div class="accordion-head">Topic 2</div>

<div class="accordion-body">content 2</div>


<!--third Accordion-->

<div class="accordion">

<div class="accordion-head">Topic 3</div>

<div class="accordion-body">content 3</div>




That is all for the html part.


THE CSS (style sheet)

You can style your html document in an external sheet but for this course we will use internal styling. So at the head section of your html document, do the following.

<style type="text/css">



border:#000 1px dashed;





border:#333 solid 1px;















We are going to use google jquery.min.js script to add to our page as seen below.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>


Next, we write our custom jquery script to control our accordion as shown below.

<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function(e) {






var parent= $(this).closest(".accordion");

var child = parent.find(".accordion-body");












That is All.
