Hello,

I’m looking for a simple alternative to the :contains below since it will match on multiple elements such as “Blog” and “Blog Archive” if in the same UL.menu LI A …

$("UL.menu LI A:contains('Blog')").append('Something...');

Thanks!

Do you know for sure what the text will be? If so you can do something like:

$("UL.menu LI A:contains('Blog'), UL.menu LI A:contains('Blog Archive')").append('Something...');

... instead of doing a wild card.

$("UL.menu LI A").each(function(){

  if($(this).html() == "Blog"){
     $(this).append("something");
  }

});
