Expanding Sub Accordion


Hi there - i’m having trouble figuring out how to expand a subaccordion within the accordion control. I’ve tried adding spaces, which starts to have the desired affect, however, it adds extra accordions that i’m not looking to add. Can you help?

Accordion 1
Accordion 2

  • Sub Accordion 1 (i’m trying to expand this while leaving the 2 subsequent closed)
  • Sub Accordion 2
  • Sub Accordion 3


We don’t have a built-in way to expand a subcategory in an accordion, Megan, but you can use two accordions together, and group them.

Here is a quick test I put together to see how it looked. I had to add a couple of spaces to the categories in the 2nd accordion to make them appear nested. Let me know if this is what you were looking for!


This helped, thank you!
