Getwid Blocks: Accordion Gutenberg Block

Home > Blog > Getwid Gutenberg Blocks > Getwid Blocks: Accordion Gutenberg Block

The Accordion Gutenberg WordPress block by Getwid adds snap horizontal accordions, in which, among other options, you can customize icons and heading types. One of the key benefits of this Accordion Gutenberg block is that it’s a nested block that can handle multiple content types – that means you can add any block inside the accordion tab container.

Accordion is a perfect design method for reducing scrolling and categorizing information, thus, improving the overall user experience on your WordPress website.

  1. how would I overwrite the default css styles in

    I would like to remove the borders and style the color of the font and icons

  2. Hi, love your stuff and it has made a huge impact in my site design. On the accordion, is there some CSS or a mode that would prevent large upward scroll from happening?

    If an open item is taller than the screen and then you open the next item when you get to the bottom, the new top scrolls past the top of the screen requiring the user to scroll up. Is there a way to make the toggle event behave as if it had followed a link to #newly_opened_item ?

    1. Hi Andrew, Thank you for using Getwid and for your question. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to add such an auto-scroll to the Accordion block. Thank you for your suggestion though. We will keep it in mind for further plugin development.

  3. We are having good success with Getwid so far, so we are happy.

    I have a question about the accordion, and I was wondering how to make all the items in the accordion collapsed by default on page load. It appears that the first item in the accordion is always open by default, perhaps I missed something?

  4. Hello,

    Is there any way to include heading, paragraphs & lists inside the acoordion item content?
