How to add active state for "nested" accordion

I found this efficient and practical nested accordion using 'ul' at codepen here: https://codepen.io/brenden/pen/Kwbpyj

It's as following:



$('.toggle').click(function(e) {
e.preventDefault();

var $this = $(this);

if ($this.next().hasClass('show')) {
$this.next().removeClass('show');
$this.next().slideUp(350);
} else {
$this.parent().parent().find('li .inner').removeClass('show');
$this.parent().parent().find('li .inner').slideUp(350);
$this.next().toggleClass('show');
$this.next().slideToggle(350);
}
});

url('http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Pacifico|Open+Sans:300,400,600');
* {
box-sizing: border-box;
font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
font-weight: 300;
}
.active {
text-decoration: underline !important;
}
a {
text-decoration: none;
color: inherit;
}
p {
font-size: 1.1em;
margin: 1em 0;
}
.description {
margin: 1em auto 2.25em;
}
body {
width: 40%;
min-width: 300px;
max-width: 400px;
margin: 1.5em auto;
color: #333;
}
h1 {
font-family: 'Pacifico', cursive;
font-weight: 400;
font-size: 2.5em;
}
ul {
list-style: none;
padding: 0;
}
ul .inner {
padding-left: 1em;
overflow: hidden;
display: none;
}
ul .inner.show {
/*display: block;*/
}
ul li {
margin: .5em 0;
}
ul li a.toggle {
width: 100%;
display: block;
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.78);
color: #fefefe;
padding: .75em;
border-radius: 0.15em;
transition: background .3s ease;
}
ul li a.toggle:hover {
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.9);
}

<h1>A Cool Accordion</h1>

<p class="description">
You could simply toggle the .show class (if display: block is uncommented in the CSS) in JavaScript, but you'll lose the animation.

<ul class="accordion">
<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 1</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>Option 1</li>
<li>Option 2</li>
<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>

<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 2</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>Option 1</li>
<li>Option 2</li>
<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>

<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 3</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Open Inner</a>
<div class="inner">
<p>
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Maecenas tempus placerat fringilla. Duis a elit et dolor laoreet volutpat. Aliquam ultrices mauris id mattis imperdiet. Aenean cursus ultrices justo et varius. Suspendisse aliquam orci id dui dapibus

<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Open Inner #2</a>
<div class="inner">
<p>
Children will automatically close upon closing its parent.
</p>
</div>
</li>

<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>

<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 4</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Technically any number of nested elements</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Another nested element</a>
<div class="inner">
<p>
As long as the inner element has inner as one of its classes then it will be toggled.

But it doesn't support active state by adding for example '.active' class for the opened title.

Also Look at the "Item 3". When you click on nested 'a', the '.active' class of 'a' inside the active 'li' parents are removed. The point here is how can i keep them active while i click on nested 'a'?

So can you help me to do that?

Answer

Check the following code.

Jquery :

 $('.toggle').click(function(e) { e.preventDefault();        
  var $this = $(this);  
  if ($this.next().hasClass('show')) {
    $this.next().removeClass('show');
    $this.parent().find('.active').removeClass('active')    
    $this.next().slideUp(350);
   } else {
    $this.parent().parent().find('.active').removeClass('active');       
    $this.parent('ul').find('.active').removeClass('active')
    $this.parent().parent().find('li .inner').removeClass('show');
    $this.parent().parent().find('li .inner').slideUp(350);
    $this.toggleClass('active');      
    $this.next().toggleClass('show');
    $this.next().slideToggle(350);
}
});

CSS

.active{
 background-color :blue !important;
}

It's adding active class in the markup :

<a class="toggle active" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 1</a>
