What if my accordion or toggle view doesn’t work?

Before jumping into the forum for help, you may try these troubleshooting tricks to figure out –

  • Make sure you have JavaScript enabled and loading properly. Make sure that you have JQuery file of the plugin rendering when the page loads. Check page source code for that.

  • Sometimes JQuery does not run correctly. You need to check out if only one file of jQuery is getting loaded in an improper manner. So, maybe two different versions of the script and are being displayed.

Try to resolve these issues. If you are not able to, please visit WordPress Forum for help.
