Support » Plugin: Essential Addons for Elementor » Image Accordion: link in content causes failure

  • Resolved DannyAnthony


    I am hoping someone has already encountered and defeated this issue. When setting the title & content for each panel of the image accordion, adding plain text in the editor causes no issues and things work as expected. Adding a single simple link in that content is making my entire accordion fail from that point backward. For example, if I have 4 panels and have a link in the content of panel 3, then panels 1, 2 & 3 fail, but panel 4 continues to work properly.

    Upon viewing the code in a validator, the result is “Start tag “a” seen but an element of the same type was already open.” In other words, there is a link tag inside another link tag:

    Each panel starts with:

    <a href="#/" style="background-image: url...>
    <div class="overlay">
    <div class="overlay-inner">
    <div class="overlay-inner">
    <h2 class="img-accordion-title">Title Here</h2>
    <p><p>The content starts here. A <a href="">link</a> breaks the code.....

    I hope to avoid workarounds and instead find the root issue. Any thoughts?

    Thank you

    Thank you for the update. Unfortunately, after adding a link within the content, I had the same results as before. But maybe others can test out the update on their site builds to see if the results vary. Thank you for following up!




    I faced other issue in Image Accordion. I use only images without title or context and add links. It worked till last update, now it adds an additional quotes end of href links so that the links are broken:

    <a class=”eael-image-accordion-hover”
    style=”background-image: url(;”
    href=”; ”

    Is there any fix for that?
