Elementor has a native widget — the Accordion widget — to add accordion content to a page or theme builder template. The widget is available on both the free version and the pro version of Elementor. While you can use the widget to add accordion to the page you are working on, there are probably some styling options you expected that are not available, so you prefer to use an Elementor add-on instead. Or maybe, you want to add an image accordion?
For the latter scenario, you need to install an add-on as Elementor has no native widget to add an image accordion.
Whichever your scenario, if you are looking for an Elementor add-on that offers widgets to add accordion content, here are the options you can choose.
1. Essential Addons
Discussing Elementor add-ons, you just can’t miss out Essential Addons. By far, it is the most popular Elementor add-on with over 800,000 active users according to a stat on WordPress.org. The add-on — which is developed by WPDeveloper — offers two widgets to add accordion content: the Advanced Accordion widget and the Image Accordion widget. The Advanced Accordion widget is used to add text accordion while the Image Accordion widget is used to add an image accordion. The Image Accordion widget allows you to add either vertical or horizontal image accordion. These widgets are available on both versions of Essential Addons (the free version and the pro version).
JetTabs is a premium Elementor add-on. To be able to use it, you need to spend at least $15 per year. It is a part of the JetPlugins family. The add-on adds 4 widgets to your Elementor, including two widgets to add accordion content: The Classic Accordion widget to add a text accordion and the Image Accordion widget to add an image accordion. When adding a text accordion, you can also add the icon as well as image elements. You can use the JetTabs add-on to add a stylish accordion to a page.
3. Happy Addons
Happy Addons has a widget called Advanced Accordion. Despite its name, you can only use the widget to create a basic accordion. There is no option to create an image accordion although you can add an image element thanks to its WYSIWYG content editor. To streamline your workflow, Happy Addons offers ten predefined accordion styles (presets) you can choose from. You can simply select one to instantly get a stylish accordion. The Advanced Accordion widget of Happy Addons allows you to use a custom icon for each accordion item. To be able to use the widget, you need to use the pro version of Happy Addons.
If you are looking for an Elementor add-on that offers a free widget to add an image accordion, Stratum is one of the options you can give a try. In addition, there is also a widget to add a text accordion. When adding an accordion content using Stratum, you can set the interaction option. Whether hover or click. In addition to two widgets to add the accordion content, there are over 18 other widgets offered by Stratum.
If you work for a web agency, PowerPack is a great add-on. Mainly because it offers a white-label feature to allow you to legally remove the PowerPack attributes with your company’s attributes as if the add-on is developed by your company. PowerPack — which is released as a premium add-on — also comes with widgets to create accordion content just like other add-ons above. With PowerPack, you can either create a text accordion or an image accordion. The Image Accordion widget — the widget to create an image accordion, allows you to create a vertical or horizontal accordion.
6. Mighty Addons
Mighty Addons is another add-on you can try if you need to look for an alternative to Elementor native Accordion widget. Unlike other widgets of the add-ons above, the widget of Mighty Addons — called the Accordion widget — offers an option to open multiple items on the accordion. There is also an FAQ Schema option in case you want to create a FAQ section on a page. Mighty Addons itself is a freemium add-on and the widget to create the accordion is available on both versions of Mighty Addons. In other words, you can add accordion content to a page using Mighty Addons without needing to spend extra money.
7. Unlimited Elements
Unlimited Elements is an Elementor add-on that offers rich enough widgets. If you need to create a basic accordion — the text accordion — you can use the free version of Unlimited Elementors. While to create an image accordion you need to use the pro version. The free version also offers several other widgets to create an accordion, including the Faq Accordion widget and the Post Accordion widget.
8. The Plus Addons
The Plus Addons also offers a widget to create an accordion to the page you are working on. The widget is available on both the free version and the pro version of The Plus Addons, allowing you to add accordion content for free. The Accordion widget of The Plus Addons allows you to add the accordion content from a template, but you need to use the pro version to unlock this feature. The free version only allows you to create a basic accordion like the one you can create with the native Accordion widget of Elementor.
