Collapsable FAQ on mobile

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://carrot-bronze-bld8.squarespace.com/coop-curbside

Hello!

I was able to create a collapsible FAQ through a markdown block and the following code but the content does not collapse on mobile--any ideas how to resolve?

<script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script>      $(document).ready(function(){

    $('.markdown-block .sqs-block-content h3').css('cursor','pointer');

    $(".markdown-block .sqs-block-content h3").nextUntil("h3").slideToggle();

    $(".markdown-block .sqs-block-content h3").click(function() {$(this).nextUntil("h3").slideToggle();});

    });    </script>

 

Thank you!

It doesn't work because of a Brine feature called Ajax Page Loading - a fantastic feature that makes Brine sites load more quickly.

You may not realise this, but the FAQ does not work for desktop visitors either. This is because the Ajax page loading feature gets disabled when you're logged on to your site. This can give you a flase sense of security. It's always a good idea to open a site in an Incognito window (without logging on) when you are testing it.

To prevent the FAQ issues, you'll want to change the code placement (place it in a Code Block within the page above the FAQ) or disable Ajax Page Loading altogether - although this will slow down the site. See my guide here: Why does Squarespace code only work on refresh?

Also you (and other readers) may want to note that the code snippet you've used is very old and uses an old version of jQuery that has known security vulnerabilities. You'll want to use the up-to-date version (currently 3.6.1).

I'm not seeing that issue when I take a look.

When I test it on my iPhone it's not functioning correctly

It's difficult for me to troubleshoot as it's good for me on iPhone too.
