cubicFUSION Horizontal Accordion


  • jQuery 1.7+ / 1.8+ / 1.9+
  • jQuery Easing (optional)


  • Make sure to load the css definitions before you load jQuery
  • When adding Youtube videos, make sure that the wmode is set to opaque, just add “&wmode=opaque” to the video url.
  • Use Child selectors to prevent inline lists to be handled by the main stylesheet. “.container > ul > li”. Use http://selectivizr.com/ to simulate and use them in IE
  • Bad fonts rendering on IE (Cleartype)
    – check for a windows hotfix
    – set a fixed background color for the container.
  • Apply “position: relative” to content wrappers, to use absolute positioning within.


The package includes many detailed examples to get you started.

Here an example:

$(document).ready(function () {
		eventTrigger: "mouseover",
        openOnLoad: 1,
        cycle: true,
        mouseEnterFunctionName: "mouseEnterTest",
        mouseLeaveFunctionName: "mouseLeaveTest",
        eventAction: function (i) {
            $("#eventRunning").html(" Opening - " + (i + 1));
        completeAction: function (i) {
            $("#eventRunning").html(" Completed - " + (i + 1));
	var test = window.setInterval(function(){
		var data 		= $(".test").hrzAccordion('loopStatus');
		var instance 	= $(".test").hrzAccordion("instanceStatus");

		$("#widthCheck").html("Container "+instance.containerWidth+"px / Content "+instance.finalWidth+"px")
function mouseEnterTest() {
function mouseLeaveTest() {
