Ezee Accordion module

Module class suffix – A suffix to be applied to the css class of the module (table.moduletable), this allows individual module styling. Include mootools script – If you already have a mootools script (with the slide functions included) or this is the second or subsequent module hider, set this to no. Alternately you can set this to Auto and the module will try to work out for itself if mootools is installed. Auto may not work correctly if you have different versions of mootools installed. Include CSS File – If you wish to write your own CSS and add it to your site template CSS files then set this to no. XHTML/CSS validation – due to limitations in Mambo and Joomla we must use certain PHP functions to have the module output valid XHTML and CSS. These functions are sensitive and will crash your site if it contains any PHP errors, producing a white content-less screen. Please switch validation off if this happens to you Module Ids – A comma separated list of module IDs. Do not put spaces between the commas or at either end. When you are satisfied with the chosen configuration option, click on „Save“ button.
