Wonderful and simple - Accordion blocks WORK!
By timbearcub on February 17, 2023
OK I tried 3/4 of the major critically praised block systems out there, and stupidly I should have just tried the one that was already installed - Genesis Blocks - cos it just works.
It's simple compared to the fanciness of Spectra or Kadence, but Kadence kept crashing my page and giving errors, and Spectra have decided to make their Accordion block a 'FAQ Block' and not allow you to add your own paragraphs in (???) and not tell anyone, least of all the WP info page....I deleted it in disgust. Don't advertise 'Accordion blocks' and then not provide them....
And Essential Blocks just didn't work; the content overlaid when re-collapsed, even on a simple FSE child theme of Automattic's 2023! Which is as standard as a theme gets, really.
But Genesis might not have all the fancy styling (which in the case of Spectra those default styles overrode my theme CSS, even when set to system default, annoyingly, including ignoring the heading styles?!) but Genesis just happily uses the body typeface, and you can add CSS and it's simple to modify the default classes, they make sense.
So +1 to Genesis vs the bloaty big boys.
Crashes sites when upgrade to PHP 8.0

Worked great for the last couple of years but crashes my sites if I attempt to upgrade PHP to 8.0.
I've tried different themes, including the Genesis Sample theme with the same result.
