Hi

I need to create a very simple accordion in wordpres my first thought was a plugin or use jquery ui accodian

The  problem is Wordpress is installed on intranet with no immediate possibility of upgrading from version 3.1  
most plugins including accordion-shortcodes are not compatible with  Wordpress older than 3.3

So DIY option of using jquery ui accordian
Wordpress 3.1 uses jquery 1.4.4  

Any suggestions where to obtain a compatible version of   jquery ui accordian that will work with jquery 1.4.4  and Wordpress 3.1?

Is there a better way to do this?

Accordion's can be quite simple
Here is a sample
HTML
    <div class="accordion">
      <div class="accordion-item">
        <h2>Item 1</h2>
        <div class="accordion-content">
          <p> This is the content</p>
        </div>
      </div>
      <div class="accordion-item">
        <h2>Item 2</h2>
        <div class="accordion-content">
          <p> This is the content</p>
        </div>
      </div>
      <div class="accordion-item">
        <h2>Item 3</h2>
        <div class="accordion-content">
          <p> This is the content</p>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>

Open in new window

CSS
<style type="text/css">
.accordion-content {
  display: none;
  overflow: hidden;
}
.accordion-item h2 {
  background: #5bc0de;
  color: white;
  border-color: #46b8da;
  font-size: 14px;
  padding: 5px;
  margin: 5px 0;
}
.accordion-item h2:hover {
  cursor: pointer;
}
</style>

Open in new window

jQuery
$(function() {
  $('.accordion-item h2').click(function() {
    $(this).next().slideToggle();
  });
});

Open in new window
