What is the best way to display collapsible elements on a page? WordPress

  • SOLVED

A plug in would be preferred as my php knowledge is not good.

I have a list of resource categories on a page and want each title to expand and show further resources in that category.

thanks
Steve

Use wp_list_pages or wp_nav_menu to control what is displayed.

See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_list_pages and http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu

Each of them generates classes such as .current_page_item which you can use to control various levels.

Will either of those work on a the items on a page like this. The items i want to exand are in the page content not the navigation bar.

I have used the first plugin on this page before to show an according style menu and it was very easy to configure. I believe you could place the menu anywhere with a shortcode. The other two plugins are interesting and come from the same developer.
