How to Add Toggle Content
The toggle allows you to expand or collapse a section of a help article. A toggle has a heading that a user can click to expand a section that displays the hidden content. The hidden or collapsed content can include images, videos, tables, and text.
This makes it easier for readers to scan a page efficiently by presenting them with a cleaner interface. The content in a toggle is not just limited to a single article or site. It can be used across multiple sites and is especially useful if a certain piece of information is repeated in multiple articles. For eg. Contact info. of a company.
This is a sample. This is how toggle content will appear to the reader. Read on to find out how toggle content is enabled.
