Hi,

How can I make collapsible text using css or php? I'd rather not use javascript.
What I'd like to do is have an excerpt of text expand to a full article and back again when desired.
An example would be the section of ee on the main page that can be maximized and minimized. If it helps at all, I'm using Expression Engine as my CMS to do this.

Thanks for all help.

I think you'll have to use some JS unless reloading the whole page isn't a problem...
