WiscWeb CMS - Content Blocks - Using a Collapsible Panel

Collapsible Panels are intended primarily for websites' Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page, though they may be repurposed elsewhere. They allow an initial section of text to become a link that, when clicked on, causes a second section of text to slide open inside of a box.

Here is an example of a Collapsible Panel:
