Text Based Components

Accordion


Click on the orange titles below and watch as the details expand and collapse. This component is very useful for "Frequently Asked Questions" sections on a webpage.

There are 2 types of accordions:

  • Accordion Dropzone allows you to put other components within the hidden area
  • Accordion Item only allows text to go in the hidden area

The accordion dropzone component creates another dropzone for other components to exist within the accordion. So you can use the background area component, like this, to add a cool texture to the background.
