here is a sample using jQuery
<html>
<head>
			<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js" type="text/javascript" ></script>
<style>
	.divCollapsablePanel {cursor:pointer}
</style>
	
<script>
$(document).ready(function() {
	$(".divCollapsablePanel").click(function(){$("div",this).toggle(1000);});
});
</script>
</head>
<body>

<div class="divCollapsablePanel">
	Error
<div style="display:none">
	error details
	<ul>
		<li>error 1</li>
		<li>error 2</li>
		<li>error 3</li>
	</ul>
</div>
</div>

<div class="divCollapsablePanel">
	Stack
<div style="display:none">
	Stack details
	<ul>
		<li>Stack 1</li>
		<li>Stack 2</li>

I have two questions:

what if code.jquery.com removes all their files is that mean my menu will not work
anymore?

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js" type="text/javascript" ></script>

my second question.

I just found on the internet something similar to what I am looking for

http://javascript.internet.com/navigation/category-menus.html

the code you just posted it doesn't close when the user select a different category like the one in the javascript page.

is there a way to have only the clicked on category open and the rest closed?

get the files and put into your web server and use that one, do not refer to jQuery site

and you may ask for effect duration:

$(".divCollapsablePanelDetail",this).show(1000);
-->
$(".divCollapsablePanelDetail",this).show(); // to show immediately without any effect
-->
$(".divCollapsablePanelDetail",this).show(250); //1/4 sec for show effect
