I messed around with your codepen a bit. Give this a try:

    // working on buttons    
   $('#online').click(function(){
    $('#main-section li').each(function() {
       if($(this).find($('span')).hasClass('online')){
         $(this).show();
        }else {
         $(this).hide();
        }
      })
   });

        $('#offline').click(function(){
    $('#main-section li').each(function() {
       if($(this).find($('span')).hasClass('offline')){
         $(this).show();
        }else {
         $(this).hide();
        }
      })
   });

I think that accomplishes what you are looking for.

I figured it out but your answer is kinda better and short basically Mine--

 $('#all').click(function() {
       $('.sub-section').css('display', 'block');
     });
     $('#offline').click(function(){
     $('.sub-section:contains("Online")').css('display', 'none');
     $('.sub-section:contains("Offline")').css('display', 'block');
   });       
   $('#online').click(function(){
     $('.sub-section:contains("Offline")').css('display', 'none');
     $('.sub-section:contains("Online")').css('display', 'block');
   });

Thanks man and you should post your answer in the answer section, not as a comment. Now I can't choose your answer as the best answer.

I couldn't tell that the buttons were doing anything right now. So I added click handlers to them:

// this goes in the "ready" area:
  $("#all").click(function() {
    $("span.online,span.offline").parents("li").show();
  });

  $("#offline").click(function() {
    $("span.online").parents("li").hide();
    $("span.offline").parents("li").show();
  });

  $("#online").click(function() {
    $("span.offline").parents("li").hide();
    $("span.online").parents("li").show();
  });
});

Heh, I got distracted while I was composing that. I see while I was doing it you got a somewhat similar answer, but with interesting differences. Just goes to show how much variation you can have in programming.

Thanks again. Here I have noticed that people do not answer your questions. They just want to answer those stupid and super easy challenges. I really appreciate your help. I was stuck for a long time, I am not aware of this "find"; I'll look into it.

Sure thing! Looks like a cool site you're building.

I actually enjoy the more challenging questions (assuming it's *technically" challenging :bulb:, not one of those that are just hard to understand! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:).

Haha me too, I'm in love with programming. Everything is logical and makes sense. Challenges are actually fun that's why I chose to do something on my own rather than just watching videos and solving their super easy and dumb questions.

I think we will definitely meet on the forum again. Now I think I understand how to work with an api and it's time to move up the ladder.

Weather Api

Wiki Api

Next thing on my list is a javascript calculator.

Samuel and Steven I think I will bug you again :p
