Accordions can be very useful when trying to compress a page that has a lot of information on it, but you do not want to delete any of the information. This is one of the best tools we have when it comes to condensing a page down. The accordion will allow you to have all needed information available to the user, in a much smaller format, while allowing the user to decide and select which portions of the infomration they want to expand. The accordion is most commonly used for FAQ pages, however there are plenty of other ways this can be used.



  •   I want to replace an existing document/image with a new file, what are the steps?
    • Go to the file that you want to replace.
    • Click on Edit tab and upload the new file using the Browse button. You can also drop the file in the file upload area.
    • Click Submit to save your changes to Cascade server and go to Publish tab to make it live.
    • Go to the Relationships tab and publish all assets that are linking to it.
  •   My links don't work on the live site, why?
    • If it’s an external link, check if the destination site is down, or the link is not working.
    • Your external links should begin with either http:// or https://
    • Some websites do not use the www prefix. Make sure you have the link entered into Cascade exactly as it appears in your browser when you're viewing the destination site.
    • If you are linking to an internal asset, make sure the asset is published to the live server.
  •   Why is my external link opening a cascade edit page?

    If your external link on the live site opens Cascade page, do the following:

    • Go to the edit tab and click on the link in WYSIWYG. Make sure the link URL starts with http:// or https://. The URL should look like this:
    • Save your changes and submit the page.

When deciding to use an accordion, it is important to consider what your content will look like both before a user clicks to expand and after. Sometimes it might be better to avoid using the accordion so the page does not appear to be blank or lack content when the user first navigates there.
