Expandable Block

The Expandable block is an excellent content management tool that formats content as tabs or accordions. Use the block to organize and present a lot of information in one place. Visitors can easily scan the tabs to find the information they are looking for. Expandable blocks may contain their own unique content or content from another block.

Note: you must enable the Advanced Content bundle to use this block.
