I created a hyperlink accordion that will be used for a FAQs section of a webpage. I got it working but I need to have a hyperlink within the text of the accordion. Also, I can't seem to modify the web part once I embed my code onto the page..? I want to edit the text color, size, etc. Lastly, I spent hours trying to get the first dropdown to not display when a user navigates to the page...I want them all hidden unless someone clicks it

Below is an image of my webpart:

My code is below:

Sorry, for some reason when I paste my html code, it's being run and only showing output and note code so this was the only way I could paste it:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <title>jQuery UI Accordion - Collapse content</title>

  $( function() {
    $( "#accordion" ).accordion({
      collapsible: true
    });
  } );
  </script>
</head>

<div id="accordion">

  • You don't mention, but I assume this is in a Content Edit WebPart (CEWP)?

  • Where do you need a hyperlink? You should be able to put anchor elements <a> in any of those inner <div>s.

  • I've added another pic to hopefully see which sharepoint web I'm using (2016). When I go into insert, the option for link is greyed out?

  • I need the link within the answer to the question. Once a user clicks the accordion question, I need the hyperlink within the text below it

I am only including a snippet of code for brevity, but if I am understanding you correctly, putting a link in your first answer would look something like this:

<h3>What’s the City’s living Wage?</h3>  <div>   
     <p> Living Wage On November 10, 2015 City Council passed Resolution   
             <a href="https://www.google.com">here is a link to Google in the middle of an answer</a>   
           15-2141 which requires prime contractors, awarded general service contracts valued greater than $50,000, and first-tier subcontractors on the contract to pay their employees rendering services on the contract no less than the “living wage” rate. The current living wage rate is $11.71..</p>  
</div>

For more details on using the anchor <a> tag, see the documentation here.

For more info on using a separate HTML file linked to the webpart, see this guide.

  • Yes, I added a link to the answer to see more details on using the anchor tag. I also added a link to linking the webpart to an HTML file that you can edit separately from the page.
