I was looking to make a really simple FAQ page that consisted of questions in h2 headers and answers under the h2s in simple paragraphs. I could not find this exact solution so after a bit of research I made my own.


$(".faq h2").nextUntil("h2").slideToggle();
$(".faq h2").click(function() {$(this).nextUntil("h2").slideToggle();});
