One Click Toggle

In this tutorial, we will create functions to slide DIVs up and down (Live Demo). It supports multiple animations happening simultaneously, as well as a variable animation length. And thus customize the animation speed (or to disable it entirely).

Login to your Dashboard> Layout> Edit Html. Copy and paste the code below before the closing b:skin tag

.ddpanel .ddpanelcontent{ /*CSS for "content" DIV of Drop Down Panel*/
color: white;
background: black; /*background of Drop Down Panel*/
/*Do NOT add any "padding" or "margin" properties here! Any padding/margin should be added to your content's container within this DIV instead */

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab{ /*CSS for "toggle" tab DIV of Drop Down Panel*/
margin-right: 20px;
font: normal 12px Arial;

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab a{ /*"toggle" tab related CSS*/
float: right;
color: white;
background: black url(toggleleft.gif) no-repeat left bottom; /*background of toggle tab*/
text-decoration: none;
letter-spacing: 1px;

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab a span{ /*"toggle" tab related CSS*/
float: left;
display: block;
background: transparent url(toggleright.gif) no-repeat right bottom;
padding: 1px 12px 4px 13px;
cursor: pointer;

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab a span img.pointerimage{ /*CSS for pointer image within toggle tab*/
margin-top: 2px;
margin-left: 5px;

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab a:hover{ /*"toggle" tab related CSS*/
background-color: navy; /*background of toggle tab onMouseover*/

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab a:active, .ddpanel .ddpaneltab a:focus{ /*"toggle" tab related CSS*/
outline: 0;

.ddpanel .ddpaneltab a:hover span{ /*"toggle" tab related CSS*/
background-color: transparent;

Next, add the source code below between the b:skin tag and the closing head tag. Now that page of your site has sliding abilities!
<script src='http://onlinebiztutorials.googlepages.com/dddropdownpanel.js'/>

Save the template. Then, click Page Elements> Add a Gadget (sidebar, header or footer -your choice)> Html/Javascript. Add these lines into the box.
<div id="mypanel" class="ddpanel">
<div id="mypanelcontent" class="ddpanelcontent">

<p style="padding:10px">
<img src="http://i36.tinypic.com/kak1t0.jpg" class="closepanel" style="float:left; width:200px; height:172px; margin:0 10px 10px 0" />The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy that is part of the Local Group of galaxies. Although the Milky Way is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe,[4] its special significance to humanity is that it is the home galaxy of our Solar System. The plane of the Milky Way galaxy is visible from Earth as a band of light in the night sky, and it is the appearance of this band of light which has inspired the name for our galaxy. It is extremely difficult to define the age at which the Milky Way formed, but the age of the oldest star in the Galaxy yet discovered, HE 1523-0901, is estimated to be about 13.2 billion years, nearly as old as the Universe itself. -Source: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milky_way" style="color:white">Wikipedia</a>.
<br style="clear: left" />
<p>Note: Click on any link or the Milky Way Image auto closes the panel.</p>

<div id="mypaneltab" class="ddpaneltab">
<a href="#"><span>Toggle</span></a>


Save settings. Hope this helps! When defining the content to be shown inside the box, try and add explicit width/height attributes to images and other embedded elements that may affect the height of the content when they are done loading as shown above.
