<!-- jQuery -->
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.min.js"></script>

<!-- Monica CSS -->
<script src="js/monica.js"></script>

<!-- Monica JS -->
<link href="css/monica.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

2. Create HTML structure for accordion like below:

<div class="monica">
   <h3 class="monicaTitle">Your Title 1</h3>
   <div class="moniceContent">
      <p>Your detailed contents goes here.</p>
   </div>
   <h3 class="monicaTitle">Your Title 2</h3>
   <div class="moniceContent">
      <p>Your title explaination. </p>
   </div>
   <h3 class="monicaTitle">Accodion Ttle 3</h3>
   <div class="moniceContent">
      <p> Details here.</p>
   </div>
</div>

Tip for Beginners:In the above HTML code, place your accordion title / question between <h3 class="monicaTitle"> tag. Similarly, add the detailed contents in <div class="moniceContent">.

3. Finally, initialize the plugin in jQuery document ready function.

$(document).ready(function() {
	
   $(".monica").monica();

});

4. To set the custom speed for slide up and down, use the following syntax.

$(".monica").monica({

            settings: {
                upTime: "slow",
                downTime: "slow"
            }
		
	});

The Possible options for speed are “slow” and “fast”. You can also set your custom speed in numbers (milliseconds), like:

settings: {
                upTime: 500,
                downTime: 600,
            }
