Alternatives to long accordions

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hi there,


I have to build some type of accordion for about 40 entries (zipcodes) and each entry has quiet a lot of text going into it (it's to list locations retailing a particular product within a zipcode). Problem is: it's too long and stretches the length of the page too much.

Is there an alternative? If I use two columns then it messes up the order of the entries in the mobile version so it's not great. 

I was thinking of some kind of combobox which isn't the most appealing, but it would only show one dropbox button, and once you select an entry, its content would show under which would solve the main issue. No idea how to build that though.

How would you display something like that?

I haven't done it yet so it won't give any context sorry. I can give you a link to what's on the old website though, so you have an idea of what I'm trying to reproduce (at the bottom, but the new version will have more content than that) in a more elegant way:

If I were going to do this, I'd use the Universal Filter plugin. It's a paid plugin but it massively simplifies how this can be achieved. Each location can be created as a blog post and then the filter can be used to decide which locations to show.

With an Advanced Map Block these same locations could also be shown on an interactive map.

Thanks that's great inputs, I didn't know about the interactive map block option!
