4 Best WordPress Accordion Plugins (Tested for 2022)

There are plenty of plugins that will allow you to add an accordion to your WordPress site. We’ve sorted through them all to bring you this list of the best WordPress accordion plugins.

There are plenty of reasons to add a collapsible accordion to your site including adding more content without taking up more room or implementing something like an FAQ section.

Here are the best WordPress accordion plugins:

1. Lightweight Accordion

This one is actually made by us here at SmartWP. It’s more of a performance based accordion plugin. Lightweight Accordion doesn’t use Javascript to make accordions but the details and summary HTML tags. This combined with a small CSS file makes it the fastest accordion plugin for WordPress. Plus if you’re a developer there is a hook to exclude the CSS from loading from your site so the plugin is pure HTML.

Lightweight Accordion allows you to customize colors, schema, borders, and even the option to open the accordion by default.

Additionally if you need schema the plugin lets you add FAQ schema to your dropdown.

They also offer a pro version with more styles but I think the free version is all most users will need.
