How to use an accordion with Wordpress.COM

I am familiar with plugins and shortcodes for Wordpress.ORG blogs.

However, I am now using a blog hosted by Wordpress.COM and would like to know how to use things like accordions, toggles, buttons, etc. It seems like you can't enable third party plugins, so how to you add functionality, specifically an accordion, on a blog hosted on Wordpress.org. I'm sure there are a number of extensions already available on Wordpress.com, but I can't figure out how to use them.

Thanks,
Mark

You don't.  The whole point of wordpress.com is that you are limited to only that which they provide you for speed and security reasons.  As far as I know there isn't a shortcode for an accordion effect:

Your best bet is to contact WordPress.com support and ask them if this can be done.
