JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Introduction to jQuery What is jQuery?

jQuery - hide() isn't functioning!

I added this line of code :- " jQuery(".warning").hide(); " to app.js in the workspace, but it fails to hide the 'warning' (It's a Trap).

//Here is the HTML file (index.html)

 <!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Take Evasive Action</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
</head>
<body>
  <p class="warning">
    <span>It's A Trap!</span>
  </p>
  <div class="image">
    <img src="img/ackbar.gif" />
  </div>
    <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>
</body>
</html>

That's not giving me anything. Can you post your code following the Markdown Cheatsheet?

 <!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Take Evasive Action</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
</head>
<body>
  <p class="warning">
    <span>It's A Trap!</span>
  </p>
  <div class="image">
    <img src="img/ackbar.gif" />
  </div>
    <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>
</body>
</html>

Hi Shikhar,

Can you post your HTML and jQuery code?

It looks like you gave the correct answer but it got deleted. Might be you deleted it yourself.

I changed this comment to an answer and marked it as "best" so you get your points for providing a best answer. :)

It worked!! (without any changes)

Thanks! adamdonnatello (for your time)

I was running into the same issue, but pressing doing a hard refresh (by pressing Shift + refresh button in Chrome) fixed it.

Looks like the Treehouse workspace text editor doesn't like single-quotes around the .warning class . I had previously wrote the code $('.warning').hide(); with single-quotes, then replaced the single-quotes with double-quotes and it worked. Go figure...

works in chrome for me
