JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Mobile Drop Down Menu Perform: Part 1

Drop-down box showing twice on index.html

Hello guys,

I need help with my code. For some reason, the drop-down box is showing twice on my index.html page. It only shows once in other pages.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
    <div id="menu">
            <li class="selected"><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
            <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
            <li><a href="support.html">Support</a></li>
            <li><a href="faqs.html">FAQs</a></li>
            <li><a href="events.html">Events</a></li>
      <option selected>Home</option>
    <p>This is the home page.</p>
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
    <script src="js/app.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
var $select = $("<select></select>");

//Cycle over menu links
$("#menu a").each(function(){
  var $anchor = $(this);

  //Create an option
  var $option = $("<option></option>");

  //Option's value is the href

  //Option's text is the text of link

  //Append option to select

In the HTML there's a select element. In JavaScript, another select element is appended to the div.

var $select = $("<select></select>");

Make sense. Thought I needed to add the select element in my index.html page. I removed the select element to fix it. Thanks!
