Kadence Blocks is an advanced block editor that extends the functionalities of the default Gutenberg editor of WordPress.
This block editor helps you in customizing your website and content in different ways. Apart from adding row layouts, headings, and advanced images, this helps you in adding tables of contents, accordions, countdown timers, etc.
So, you can add WordPress Accordion Without Plugin (without using a separate plugin) if you have Kadence Blocks installed.
In this article, I will provide you with a detailed tutorial on adding a WordPress Accordion Dropdown section using Kadence Blocks.
- Step #1: Install the Kadence Blocks plugin if you haven’t installed it yet.

By default, it shows two title bars but you can add as many as you need.
- Step #5: Now customize the accordion by changing its color, spacing, etc.
For this navigate to the right-hand sidebar and customize the accordion settings one by one.
Select the pane’s normal color, hover color, and color on the active pane. Choose the pane’s title trigger icon from the drop-down menu and select its displaying side on the pane.
Next to these settings come the title spacing and border settings. The below picture will make you clear about it.
Next to these come the typography settings that will allow you to change the text style, size, height, and weight.
After doing all this, you can adjust the inner content as you per your wish. The inner content is basically your answer section.
You can adjust its padding, and background color and customize its border as well.
The last setting is very crucial for your content.
Obviously, you are creating an FAQ section to rank your content for the Rich Snippets and People Also Ask sections.
