I'm wondering if anyone has some code that will show an item from the Squarespace Accordion Block as open by default? My client wants the first accordion item to be open when the page loads

This is a built-in feature 🙂

...and never more shocked than me to discover that something is built in and doesn't require code 😲

Any insight on how to set all accordion blocks to be opened at once?

 

I understand it would most likely take some javascript... Attempting to have a list layout on Desktop with each section always open, but then make it more mobile friendly aka accordion-functioning on mobile. Any thoughts?

#1. Use this

/* Accordion Block - Expand all items */
  .sqs-block-accordion li:nth-child(4) .accordion-item__dropdown {
    display: block !important;
}

#2. Each titles in each accordion will use a different font name or font color or?

i'm trying to change the numbers to be a different font, here's my attempt:

 

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1700055594134_17636  .accordion-item__title h4 strong * {font-family: 'montserrat'!important;
font-size:08.em!important;
letter-spacing:0.2em!important;}

Use

strong b, strong

instead of

strong *

If it still doesn't work, you can share link to page where you use accordion, I can check easier

I got it to work using your thread: 

with <strong> 01/ </strong> in the accordion title

using code: 

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1700055594134_17636  .accordion-item__title strong {font-family: 'montserrat'!important;
font-size:12px!important;
  position:relative;
  top:-1vh!important;
letter-spacing:0.2em!important;
font-weight:400;}

 

and this code in the page header code injection:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $("span.accordion-item__title").each(function(){
    $(this).html($(this).text());
  });
});
</script>

Can this code be used for certain pages and not the entire site? I would like different sections to expand on different website pages.

You can edit that page > Add a Block > Choose Code > Paste this code

<style>
  /* Accordion Block - Expand all items */
  .sqs-block-accordion .accordion-item__dropdown {
    display: block !important;
}
</style>
