Like everything, we will be using a plugin. Ultimate Blocks is the plugin that comes with two blocks (Content Toggle and Expand) to help you to show and hide content in WordPress.

At first, you need to install and activate the Ultimate Blocks plugin. You can download the Ultimate Blocks plugin for free.

Once you’ve activated the plugin, go to the post editor and search for ‘Content Toggle’.

Insert the block and add title of your content in the panel title and main content under it.

You can add more content toggle by clicking on the ‘+’ sign.

You can configure the show and hide options from the block options.
