How to use Accordion

It is very easy to use Accordion. All you need to do is to create an ul-list, fill it with a couple of li-elements and div-elements for the content; In the example below if you click on New York the div element containing Information about New York will show.

<ul>
    <li>
        <a href="#america">America</a>
        <ul>
            <li>
                <a href="#america-newyork">New York</a>
                <div>Information about New York</div>
            </li>
            <li>
                <a href="#america-sanfransisco">San Fransisco</a>
                <div>Information about San Fransisco</div>
            </li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li>
        <a href="#antarctica">Antarctica</a>
        <div>Information about Antarctica</div>
    </li>
</ul>

When you have created the necessary html code you need to include the javascript file with the plugin and call the accordion method. See the demo for a more detailed example.

$('ul').accordion();

Linking to a level inside the accordion

Notice the href-attributes on each a-element. If you in the html code example above create a link to #america-newyork and click it the accordion will open up ‘New York’ and all it’s parents.
