Close Divi accordion

To make the Divi accordion all closed, add the following JavaScript to your theme. Navigate to “Divi – Theme Options – Integration” and paste the following code in “Add code to the < head > of your blog.”

document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {
  setTimeout(function() {
  }, 50)

After you save the changes and refresh the page, you will see that the accordions are closed.

The above code will close all the accordions on your website. However, if you want to close a specific accordion, you have to add a CSS ID or class name to the accordion widget.

After that, you also have to add the additional CSS ID or class to the JavaScript.

To add a CSS ID or class to the widget, click the setting (gear icon) of the module and go to the “Advanced” tab to add the ID or class.

Divi accordion settings
Add a custom CSS ID or Class name

Let’s say, you inserted a CSS ID and named it “my-accordion.” So you have to update the above JavaScript as you see below:

document.querySelector("#my-accordion .et_pb_toggle").classList.remove("et_pb_toggle_open")
document.querySelector("#my-accordion .et_pb_toggle").classList.add("et_pb_toggle_close")

Still, if you have any questions or confusion, let me know.
