Challenge task 1 of 1 jQuery Basics Creating a mobile drop down menu

Hi stuck on this question?

On line 9 of app.js, use the method we used to cycle over each of the menu links. Pass in an anonymous function too.

Here's the code i'm adding onto line 9

  var $anchor = $(this);
  var $option = $("<option></option>");

Any help appreciated thx

And this is the code before i add anything

//Problem: It look gross in smaller browser widths and small devices
//Solution: To hide the text links and swap them out with a more appropriate navigation

//Create a select and append to #menu
var $select = $("<select></select>");

//Cycle over menu links
$("#menu a");
  //Create an option
  //option's value is the href
  //option's text is the text of link
  //append option to select

//Create button 
//Bind click to button
  //Go to select's location
//Modify CSS to hide links on small width and show button and select
  //Also hides select and button on larger width and show's links
//Deal with selected options depending on current page

Phil, you need to remove the extra closing parentheses right after the word "function" :

$("#menu a").each( function(){ ...


$("#menu a").each( function ) (){...

$("#menu a").each( function () { });

This one worked for me
