HTML coding help needed

    I'm at a loss here. I'm trying to create an 'accordian' drop down within an 'accordian' drop down.

    https://silc.idaho.gov/?page_id=498...collapse-what-are-personal-assistant-services

    when you click on
    'Personal Assistant Services' the first accordian looks right as you see

    'What are Personal Assistant Services'
    SEMrush
    but when you click on 'What are Personal Assistant Services', it does not show the text content that you are supposed to see. you can see it in the view source.

    what am i doing wrong?

    I don't see any problem here.

    I see this:

    Isn't that what we are supposed to see?

    I did a validator check for this page and got this:

    Try fixing those errors and see if anything changes.

    Seems to work fine here? When I open the link, the first accordion is open - and if I click the next one, it opens, and the first one closes. And vice versa. I cannot see any accordions inside other accordions, though?

    so strange as i only see 2 </p> tags in all of the coding and both have opening tags.

    when you click on the second link, 2 paragraphs of text should show up.

    I am using FF.

    I found 11 <p> tags and 11 </p> tags.

    1) 4 <p> tags were opened and never closed.
    2) 4 </p> tags were trying to close <p> tags that were never opened.

    The errors shown above only show #2 where the paragraphs were never opened.

    Edit:

    I went and eyeballed the source code again. I found several more errors that the validator did not catch. You have one H1 header which is correct. You have several H4s and NO H2s nor H3s. By definition you cannot have any H4s without both H2s and H3s. These errors are probably not the cause of your problems, but should be fixed regardless.

    that is bizzare. i also am using Firefox and when i do a 'view source' on the page, i only see 2 <p>. i even did a search and it only hits on 2 lines. unfortunately, i am restricted to only using Wordpress to edit any pages. I have no access to the actual files because of security at a government agency. really hard to debug like that. i'd appreciate if you could send me what you see for the 'view source'.

    Here is the complete source of the page. I highlighted the tags in RED for P tags that were opened and never closed and BLUE for P tags that are trying to close P tags that were never opened. HOWEVER, on DP EVERYTHING within code tags is INVISIBLE to me so I do not know what you will actually see.

    It SUCKS that you are forced to use TURDPRESS to forever chase your tail.

    <p>Personal assistants are individuals who are hired to assist individuals with disabilities and the elderly with eating, bathing, grooming, hygiene, chores, and other services, based on individuals&#8217; needs. Personal assistants allow individuals with disabilities and the elderly to live in the community, rather than at institutions such as nursing homes.</p>
    <p>&#8220;Personal assistants empower older Idahoans and individuals with disabilties the choice to participate in all areas of community living with our family and friends. Without their assistance many individuals with disabilities and older Idahoans would not have the opportunity to live in our own homes or work in competitive employment,&#8221; from Dana Gover&#8217;s <em>Idaho&#8217;s Personal Assistant Survey Results</em> (December 2011).</p>

    <p>The State of Idaho Medicaid authorizes personal assistant services so that eligible participants can enjoy the greatest degree of self-reliance possible and enhance their quality of life, individual choice, consumer control, independence and community integration. Insurance plans also may pay for personal assistance services.</p>

    <p>If you are covered by insurance other than Medicaid, contact your insurance company to determine the process for applying for personal assistance services. If you are covered by Medicaid, call your Regional Medicaid Services office (RMS) to request an assessment to see if you qualify for services.</p>
    <ul>
    <li>Participants approved for Medicaid Basic Plan or one of the Medicaid Home and Community Based Services waivers listed below can receive personal assistance services if medical eligibility criteria are met:
    <ul>
    <li>Developmental Disability (DD) waiver</li>
    <li>Aged and Disabled (A&amp;D) waiver</li>
    </ul>
    </li>
    <li>A Uniform Assessment Instrument (UAI) is completed for adults requesting Personal Care Services (PCS) or A &amp; D waiver services. The Regional Medicaid Services (RMS) nurse reviewer completes the UAI to determine whether the participant meets medical criteria. If the personal care services are authorized by the RMS, the participant (and/or his family) will create a plan of care that outlines how the selected the services are to be delivered.</li>
    </ul>

    <p>If the RMS nurse reviewer determines that self-direction of services is a viable option, participants and/or their families can request the self-directed care option. This allows the participant to hire, train and fire his or her own personal assistant. Participants will be able to choose a fiscal intermediary, one of the Centers for Independent Living (CILs), that help with recordkeeping for payroll and liability insurance payments and to bill Medicaid for the personal assistance expenses.</p>
