This question has been answered here.



What you are looking for is $("ul.nav li"); . This selects a ul with the class of .nav instead of a ul inside of an element with the class of nav.

Be sure to look through the other forum post though, the people there seem to have a much deeper understanding of jQuery and the instructor gets in on the conversation.
