Close Elementor Accordion by Default

How to Close Elementor Accordion by Default

If you’re working on a client’s website and want to add accordions, it’s likely because they’re interested in SEO (search engine optimization). Accordions are a great way to add a lot of content to a page without too much space, which can help improve your website’s ranking on search engines. Keep in mind, though, that you’ll need to make sure the page still has enough content to meet the minimum word count requirements.

The Elementor Accordion widget is a great way to create sections like FAQs or similar ones. You can add as many items as possible; the first item is set to open by default. However, there is no default setting to close it, which can be annoying for some users.

You can use the HTML widget to add the code above to your Accordion widget. Drag the HTML widget and place it right above the Accordion widget. Paste the code into the HTML Code field on the settings panel once the HTML widget is added.
