Extracting data with a collapsed block

Submitted: 8/2/2018
I am tryint to extract data from https://safeelectric.ie/find-an-electrician/ 

Once a county is selcted it displays a list of electricians. However th access the data each block needs to be expanded. I am not sure how to do this.

The html is this:

<a data-toggle="collapse" data-parent="#accordion" href="#collapse1" aria-expanded="true" aria-controls="collapse1"></a>

once the accordian is expanded aria-expanded = true, but collapsed it is = false.

Anyone any ideas how I might extract this data?

I don't think that you need to expand '+' for each item, they are hidden in HTML page only.

See the attached demo project and sample data.

Thanks for the demo project. Unfortuately I am using version 2.89 so the rip file will not open with my version.

Would it be possible to explain how you created a template for the extract from the HTML
