Other notes:




Latest Change log entry:


  • jQuery selector for expandanchor no longer needed.

  • alt tag not used unless alt value is provided
  • reworked the way url hashtags are handled to include manual hash changes in url

+ Jason's Comments

Expandable content boxes are great for FAQ pages and managing reusable content, providing further onsite content and links. Expandable sections work well when repeating content using Global Content Blocks.
