Re: Sections and links on collapsable menu

Hi Raúl,

If the links are to additional resources, what's the element that
loads content into the video player, and where does it fit in the menu

Is the menu vertical or horizontal?

If it's vertical then you might be able to mark it up as an accordion,
with each section being a button wrapped in a heading. When the button
is clicked, its branch is opened or closed.

Here's an implementation of an accordion that you could copy and
change to suit what you need. This one has only one branch open at a
time, but you could have as many as you want open I guess.


Cheers - hope this helps.
