Hi,

As you can see below in the code, i get a parse error.

The script works in chrome not in safari. (which i think is strange because they both use webkit)

What is wrong with the code and how can i fix it?

Thanks!
<script>
function class() {  
        
contact.php:31SyntaxError: Parse error

if ($('#55').hasClass('buttonactive')) 
{$('#55').removeClass('buttonactive').addClass('button');}
else 
{$('#55').removeClass('button').addClass('buttonactive');}
}
</script>

try to use a valid ID
currently you're using only numbers

Check Attribute Values here for example to know the rules :

hmm thanks for the input.

i managed to fix it this way:
$("#a<? echo $current . $current ?>").click(function () {
  $("#a<? echo $current ?>").removeAttr("href");
  $('#a<? echo $current . $current ?>').toggleClass('buttonactive').toggleClass('button');

Open in new window


the error was that the page loaded on every click.
