Hi guys,

I am trying to figure out a way to change the position of a css element depending on the page it is being viewed using jQuery. I must stress that I am very new to jQuery and would like to know how I can manipulate the DOM for my site.

I need something like this:

if element is on homepage {position:relative} else {position:fixed};

I really not sure how to do this and would be grateful for some assistance please...

You have a point, a very good point!

I was trying to avoid duplicating the template file for shopping cart sidebar (Magento). I currently have it showing on the product view page with position relative. I also have it showing on the checkout page where I would like it to be fixed so its always visible when scrolling down the page....

Why the C if my response did not help then just have the Q deleted and indicate you need something additional.  It is really quite insulting that I am the only one to respond to your question and you throw the lowest possible grade at me, without any indication of a reason for it.

You shouldn't be insulted, its an average answer to a question that had asked for something more specific. I preferred to award you the points instead of deleting the question as I thought that would have been an insult... Seems I was damned if I did and damned because I didn't.

Is there a way to change the grade?
