Creating Collapsible Sections in Markdown

Guru does not have built-in functionality to create a collapsible section within our Editor. If this feature would be helpful for you and your team, please give this feedback post in our Guru Community a vote! This is the best way for our Product Team to capture interest in this feature. 🤓

As a workaround, you can build a collapsible section using Markdown. Read on to learn more about how to set this up!

✍️ Note
We hope that you are able to take advantage of this as a workaround for now, but because this is a workaround and not supported functionality within our editor, this may not function as seamlessly as an editor feature would, and you may experience some bugs. For example, these collapsible sections will not have an arrow indicating that there is a dropdown.

Create collapsible sections using markdown

  1. Create a Markdown block in the Card Editor

  2. Copy the HTML from this template into a markdown block in your own Guru Card, then customize it to get started creating collapsible sections! 🚀

# A collapsible section with markdown<details>  <summary>Click to expand!</summary>    ## Heading  1. A numbered  2. list     * With some     * Sub bullets</details>

✍️ Note

  • Make sure you have an empty line after the closing </summary> tag, otherwise the markdown/code blocks won't show correctly.

  • Make sure you have an empty line after the closing </details> tag if you have multiple collapsible sections.

This is the final product. See the above note about the arrow icon, this is not currently supported Guru.
