Support » Plugin: Lightweight Accordion » Excellent Accordion Without the Weight

  • Excellent plugin and very useful alternative to accordion blocks that rely on jQuery. This is very lightweight, and other than IE 11 (almost 8 years old), browser support is good across the board.

    I love that there’s an option to choose the HTML tag for the accordion title, as well as the option to include schema markup or not. The filter to remove the CSS file and roll your own is great too.

    Thank you, Andy. Great work and really appreciate you taking the time to put this together and maintain.

    Thanks for the review Thornbrand! glad it’s meeting your needs. I most likely will be adding some more features soon, any requests?

    The appeal of plugins like this for me is performance and functionality. Of course, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for new features or options! If I think of any, I’ll be sure to pass them on.

    I am curious about the wpautop function with preg_replace introduced in version 1.1.1.

    I’m guessing this was added more with the classic editor in mind?

    With the Gutenberg editor, it seems unnecessary. I could see situations where content might be changed when not intended. And although small, on long or complex nested content, there’s bound to be some performance overhead from running it.

    It might be nice to apply a filter to that as well, to make it optional.

    I’ll play around with the plugin a bit more and let you know if I have any feedback. So far, it’s great though!

    Ah good call, yeah the classic editor was having some weird extra spacing so that kind of cleans that out. Let me see if I can monitor which version you’re using and not use that regular expression. Worst case I’ll add a filter as you suggested, thank you!!

    @thornbrand New update out, also gives you the option to add inline text/background colors. Let me know what you think, I also took into affect what you said about the content processing and made a few other improvements.

    Andy, sorry I missed the notification for your reply here! Been wrapped up in work and other projects the last few weeks.

    I just checked out the update. I see the conditional check if a block is being used for the content processing now, very nice!

    The visual border is a nice touch, both front and back end. I like that you included a filter to disable shortcode processing if wanted too. You’ve added some great features while keeping things lightweight and simple. Nice work.

    Appreciate the update, thank you!

    @thornbrand Glad you like the updates! Funny every feature I add I think about your review and is like will he think it’s too much 🤔😂.

    I’ll see what else I can add (probably will add a visual element in Gutenberg to show if an accordion is set to open by default).

    @someguy9 Lol, I can’t help it, I’m always looking for performance, stability and simplicity first. Features that don’t compromise that are great, and features that may are best served as optional in my humble opinion.

    If I’ve made you think twice in that regard, I’m ok with that 😀 You’ve started with a great plugin here and love what you’ve done with it.

    I’ll be using this on the site I’m working on now. I’m just getting back into blogging, marketing, and working with WordPress after many years away. Have a lot to catch up on, but I’m inspired by some of the success you’ve had, actually.

    Keep up the great work. Will shoot you any (hopefully useful) feedback I have down the road, if you’d like.
