JS Query Collapse / Expand Functionality

Posted on 2014-02-05
Last Modified: 2014-02-05
Recently someone answered the question about how to expand / collapse list. The attached code works great for expanding/collapsing lists within a list. I need to modify the code to display all nested lists within the 1st level. Example below for "Reports". When you click on reports I want the Local (Local 1, Local 2, Local 3) and State (Ohio, Pennsylvania) to ALL display. Is this something that is modified in the javascript ( or in the script added to the code. Could someone give an example of where/what would be changed?

+  Documents
   •  Document 1
   •  Document 2
+  Reports
   •  Local
      o  Local 1
      o  Local 2
      o  Local 3
   •  State
      o  Ohio
      o  Pennsylvania

Give your top level UL a class e.g. top then change
ul ul{

Sorry, I did not explain correctly. I want all lists collapsed when the page opens. Then if you click on one of the top level <ul> all the lists under will expand.

My fault, I tried to put a comment with the style section and I think it negated the command. All is working correctly.

Thank you.
