Creating a 'dynamic' FAQ
Looking to learn how specific effect was created

 9:37 pm on Jan 3, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

Hopefully I've posted this question in the right category, seemed like the logical place. Anyhow, I'm trying to figure out how to create a specific effect on a page. The best way to describe the effect is to see it in action.


If you visit the page, the questions have little drop down arrows. When you click the question, the response appears, or is "extended" below the question. How was that accomplished/ created?

Any thoughts would be most appreciated!

Did you sneak a look at the site's own CSS? That's always my first step. Second step comes when I discover they have twenty-eight separate stylesheets, grr.

Without having seen the site as its been snipped - Id wager theyre using somehting like Jquery's toggle(); to show/hide the questions as required

I suspect they are using jQuery's slideToggle [api.jquery.com] method.
