Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup and script for Accordion Menu

We make a HTML file and save it with a name menu.html

<html>
<head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="menu_style.css">
  <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
    function paragraph(id)
    {
	   $("#"+id+"-para").slideToggle();
    }
  </script>
</head>

<body>
  <h1>Accordion Menu Using jQuery And CSS</h1>
  <div>

    <li id="li-one" onclick="paragraph(this.id);">First Para Info</li>
    <p id="li-one-para">
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
    </p>
	
    <li id="li-two" onclick="paragraph(this.id);">Second Para Info</li>
    <p id="li-two-para">
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
    </p>

    <li id="li-third" onclick="paragraph(this.id);">Third Para Info</li>
    <p id="li-third-para">
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
    </p>

    <li id="li-fourth" onclick="paragraph(this.id);">Third Para Info</li>
    <p id="li-fourth-para">
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
      This is just an example of Simple Accordion
    </p>

  </div>
  
</body>
</html>

In this step we define all the markups for Accordion Menu and we use jQuery slideToggle() function to show and hide the content with animation.You may also like floating navigation menu.
