So what’s my 1 line code solution?

Step 2: Create code for Accordion/Toggle style.

In this step, we put your text content.

  1. Here is the necessary code

</details>
  1. Here you make it <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, whatever you want
  2. The next section after the summary is going to be your hidden content
  3. Also, Here you make it <p>, <div>, whatever you want

Note: If you do not know HTML just edit the necessary code.

Make your Toggle open by default.

Just add a ‘open’ attribute in <details> tag,

E.g

<details open>
      <summary>[ENTER YOUR TITLE]</summary>
      <p>[ENTER YOUR DESCRIPTION]</p>
</details>

Make Multiplule Toggles.

You can simply do this by repeating the code.

      <p>[ENTER YOUR DESCRIPTION]</p>
</details>
<details>
      <summary>[ENTER YOUR TITLE]</summary>
      <p>[ENTER YOUR DESCRIPTION]</p>
</details>

Step 3: Paste the code on the code block.
