Question 2 modify the $select code

I am stuck on this question. Here is what I tried.

//Problem: It look gross in smaller browser widths and small devices //Solution: To hide the text links and swap them out with a more appropriate navigation

//Create a select and append to #menu var $select = $("<select></select>"); $("#menu").append($select);

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

//Deal with selected options depending on current page if($anchor.parent().hasClass("selected")) { $option.prop("selected", true); } //option's value is the href $option.val($anchor.attr("href")); //option's text is the text of link $option.text($anchor.text()); //append option to select $select.append($option); }); //Create button var $button = $("<button>Go</button>"); $("#menu").change($button); //Bind click to button $button.click(function(){
//Go to select's location window.location.replace = $select.val(href);

});

Here's what worked for me, and it appears this is what you have written, but try to make sure the format is like this and see what happens!

  //Deal with selected options depending on current page
  if($anchor.parent().hasClass("selected")) {
    $option.prop("selected", true);
  }
