Adding more dynamic content within Accordian

The ability to add other H5P content as well as other embedded content within an Accordian would make it a much more dynamic and useful tool. It would put on par with the Presentation tool i.e. like a "collapsed presentation".

Dynamic content in Accordian
Supporter votes Members of the Supporter Network can vote for feature requests. When the supporter network has generated sufficient funding for the top voted feature request it will normally be implemented and released. More about the H5P Supporter Network

Hi JBriggs,

Thank you for the suggestion. Although I'm wondering how this would be different from Column, this content is very similar if not exactly how you described above.


Yes it would be like Column except each set of content would be hidden or collapsed under each heading like Accordian, requiring a click to reveal it. The key benefit of this is to display a smaller  (1-up) overview (headings) that can be expanded.

In theory this change could be applied to the column OR the Accordian.

Hi JBriggs,

Thank you it makes perfect sense now :-). Thanks a lot for contributing your ideas on how to make H5P better! We’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.

Personally I think it would be a lot easier to integrate the hide/reveal feature in Column instead of getting the contents integrated in Accordion.


That sounds fantastic!!! Upvote.

Please hide reveal! 

Also it would be great if we could have a better extra elements in all the text editors, I use Wordpress and I have checked out your instructions but still haven’t been able to implement it! Is there tutorials, I would love to be able to add images and media inside accordions! Just can’t figure it out. 

Hide / reveal or accordian on steroids would be an excellent feature, It would allow us to create full length learning modules in columns that are not initially overflowing with information. 

Quartztraining, what instructions are you refering too? I would be interested to see this.

There is a page in h5p here that’s allows you to add elements to h5p and also change visuals! Via a plugin 

search for h5p mods and visuals you’ll find it. 

I'm needing to hide some instructions that are only applicable to some people. The accordian feature would work great, except I need to show an image too. Accordians with images looked really good, as I've made use of then in other html builders (e.g. Elementor).

I was trying to do this.... put an accordian within an accordian for a U.S. Constitution interactive.  I don't think it's possible though.  I might try to use column, but it doesn't really end up looking like what I envision.

There's a pull-request that will allow to use a larger variety of contents inside Accordion (, but it doesn not allow to put Accordions into Accordions (that might cause trouble) and the H5P core team will have to find some time to review the changes and to release them.
