This script below works to toggle the div tag open and closed, but I want the text to also toggle and say "Show less" when it is clicked and show more when it is clicked again. When it is clicked once, the show less displays fine, but when it is clicked the second time to collapse the div, it still says show less and doesn't toggle back to "show more".
 <script>  
        $(document).ready(function(){
      $("p[id^='seeall']").click(function() {
         $(this).next("div").toggle();
      $(this).text(($('#seeall').text() == 'Show less') ? 'Show more' : 'Show less');
      });
      });
   </script>

html...
<p id="seeall#j#" style="text-decoration:underline;">Show more</p>
                                <div id="filter#j#" style="display:none;">
                                  text here
                               </div>
