modify jquery to allow multiple control panels to remain open?

Hi. I have set up an accordion menu, per this page: http://jqueryui.com/demos/accordion/

However, I need to allow more than one control panel to stay open at the same time. I am trying to use this code:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
	$('.accordion .head').click(function() {
		$(this).next().toggle();
		return false;
	}).next().hide();
});

Open in new window


... or something like it, to allow more than one control panel to stay open. But, it's not working for me.

Is there an easy way to modify the jquery code (below) to allow more than one control panel to stay open? Or should I abandon this jquery code and look for another?

Thank you for your help.

Eric

I use this to do similar to what you are mentioning. It has everything closed initially but will open them one by one without closing any previously opened.

<script type="text/javascript">
         $(document).ready(function() {
                    $('div#accordion> div').hide();  
                    $('div#accordion> h3').click(function() {
                      $(this).next('div').slideToggle('slow')
                      .siblings('div:visible').slideDown('slow');
                    });
            });
                  </script>
          <div id="accordion">
          <h3>Section title</h3>
          <div>section content</div>
          </div>
