View Full Version : jQuery Accordion Menu

10-25-2010, 12:13 AM
I have a simple horizontal accordion menu on my website: http://www.jickpictures.com/preview

When you click on the black buttons (with white text on top) at the top or bottom, text either slides out to the left or the right.

I want the user to be able to click these buttons again and the text retracts back into the button and stays there. You can see it begins to do that, but then just slides back out again and I'm at a stand still.

If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated, I'm struggling.

Thank you

Markup has changed slightly. Mostly this is for validation. An on page stylesheet was added to assist in this. Its selector and rules may replace #line and its rules in your external stylesheet. Other minor corrections. But I also added the data-width attribute to one of the triggers for functionality. You may make the two on page scripts external. Any questions, just ask:
