The accordion on my page chops off some of the text (please see toggle 4 on link below).  How do I set the accordion to expand as far as the last line of the text no matter how short/long the content is?

Thanks

Set the heightStyle option to:
heightStyle: "content"
or
heightStyle: "fill"

According to jQuery Documentation:

- Setting heightStyle: "content" allows the accordion panels to keep their native height.

- To fill the vertical space allocated by its container, set the heightStyle option to "fill", and the script will automatically set the dimensions of the accordion to the height of its parent container.

Yes, what @eemit said. Add heightStyle: "content" at line 2659 in your main.js file.

     $(this).accordion({
            autoHeight: false,
            active: activeTab,
            collapsible: false,
          heightStyle: "content"
     });

"fill" is not going to get you the desired effect in this case.

@ememit, thank you for pointing me in the right direction and explaining the difference between "content" and "fill."

@tommyBoy, thank you for going the extra mile and showing me exactly how and where to put the code.

You guys rock!
