Bootstrap Accordions:

Accordion Form with Bootstrap

Accordions have many useful benefits in a website and many website owners use these handy features to improve the quality and performance of their site. Usually lengthy pages with lots of content benefit the most from an accordion. Using the element will reduce the amount of scrolling needed hence, the page appearing shorter than it is. The headers give the users some sort of clue of what they are going to read about and whether they want to read that particular section or not. This can be quite satisfying to the users as it will minimize the time needed to find what they needed. Since some of the content is hidden until the user expands the respective accordion, the page looks much cleaner. Besides, not all of the content load simultaneously and therefore the page is much faster as well.

Accordions can also be used in Bootstrap forms. Accordion forms work similar to normal accordions but instead of text, accordions contain sections of forms. This usage takes up a lot less physical space inside your website and makes the form appear shorter which let's be honest, we all hate long and complicated ones. All in all, this simple accordion form is perfect when you have multiple lengthy forms and want to hide the length of it. Also, you can get these Bootstrap accordions for free right now.
