    Thanks for your awesome plugin! Might you have any recommendations for improving Cumulative Layout Shifts (CLS) that GTMetrix reports identify as caused by Collapse-O-Matic so we can improve a low core web value CWV score?

    Thanks for your awesome plugin!

    you are super welcome.

    Might you have any recommendations for improving Cumulative Layout Shifts…

    CLS, GTMetrix, CWV… a bit buzzwordy, no?
    To translate this for the free WordPress community Support Forum audience: You seem to be asking something like:

    We ran our website through some online tool called GTMetrix (notice the link) and it complained about something to do with the fact that the layout was shifting. CWV score is how this is measured. Any thoughts?

    The plugin is called Collapse-O-Matic. It’s purpose is similar to that of an accordion: collapsing and expanding, but with content not bellows.
    You are asking if there is a way to collapse and expand the content without causing a shift in layout, correct?

    If so, yes! Here is an idea: One might provide the hidden/collapsed target content element a fixed height. This will force that element to maintain its ground leaving gaping holes where the hidden content can fill if ever expanded, but display a gaping void when collapsed.

    Not pretty, but then who cares about design when death CWV is on the line!?

    If you would like to provide a bit more context to your question, maybe we can be of further assistance. Or, in the parlance of this thread: Please reduce the obfuscated argot indicative of such queries.
