Expandable Content

Expandable content in WordPress are heading-style expandable links. Heading-style expandable links have a heading link that acts as a trigger to expand and collapse a container of content. There is no minimum; a page may contain as few as one expandable section and as many as you like. You can use this block to make text-heavy content more digestible; FAQs are a good use case for this type of block.

To add the Expandable Content block, click the “+” symbol and search for “Expandable Content”. Then, select the Expandable Content block icon.

Expandable Content Group

Similar to the Expandable Content block, the Expandable Content Group block can be used to make text-heavy content more digestible. The Expandable Content Group has the added functionality of an Expand All or Collapse All link that will expand or collapse all Expandable Content blocks in the group.

Jack the Bulldog is the university’s official mascot – a well-known figure who is a beloved presence at Georgetown sports events. According to the American Kennel Club, Jack ranks eighth among the 125 most famous dogs in pop culture.

The class of 1964 brought the first Jack the Bulldog to campus in 1962. According to popular legend, the puppy refused to answer to the name that students gave him (Hoya) and only responded to “Jack.” The current mascot is often seen skateboarding across the court during games.
