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

Error and no select bar.

Right in the beginning of this video we add 2 lines of code to the app.js folder...

var $select = $("<select></select>"); $("#menu").append($select);

After this code is entered he does a preview and the select box is already in place.

When I did the same the new select box was visible so I checked in the console to find this error message.

Blocked loading mixed active content "http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"

Is this normal? Did I miss the addition of some code along the way?

Thanks! Stephen

I was having trouble making this work, the solution I found was replacing the src in the <script> tag (inside index.html) changing




Thanks Pau,

This solved the issue.

Also worth noting because it was frustrating for me. In my version of Chrome the Select bar doesn't show up unless it has options inside of it.
