Toggle Text box widget for Blogger
For mentioning an article’s some important phrase, author credit or just highlight some special text in post we often use Toggle text box widget (Click on a line or button, expands and expose to lot’s of embedded text). Toggle text box widget usually comes up with Wordpress theme package (like Thesis theme, Elegant Themes) what can be activate through ‘text editor’. But for ‘Blogger’ there is no such function like Toggle box. So I wanted to make one for Blogger. This Toggle box widget basically work like Accordion and they powered by jquery for creating smooth effect. This one I developed it do not use jquery felt not necessary and slow down site, made with just CSS, HTML5 and CSS3, cool designed, light weighted and responsive. Let’s see how it looks like and how to add it in Blogger.
