If you want to include Expand+Collapse Funk you can use the following code anywhere in your Theme: (remember to swap out the Link and Hidden Content for your content)

<div class="exp-col-content-holder"><a class="expand-cnt-link" href="#">This Is The Link To Click</a>
    <div class="hidden-content">
        <p class="hiddenContentp">This is all of your hidden content. This will be invisible at first, but after clicking on the link above this will slide in.</p>

Using Expand+Collapse Funk allows for very easy placement of collapseable content and a link to reveal the content. The expand and collapse functionality is widely used across the web to free up space on a page or to place semi-important content into posts, pages or into the sidebar. There is no limit to the length of the collapseable content. Easily include images, YouTube/Vimeo videos or anything else you could imagine.

I originally built this plugin for the marketing department at my full time job, so a simple UI and ease of use was kept in mind throughout development.
