Hi there,

I am trying to replace one of the list content with jquery, however it is not working and have error. Please advise what should be done. Appreciate your help.

I try to find the "contact us" list and replace it with "open ticket"

This is the menu:

<ul class="menu">
<li>
<a href="/sc/index.php/home">home</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="/sc/index.php/announcements">announcements</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="/sc/index.php/contact">contact us</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="/sc/index.php/products">products</a>
</li>
</ul>

What I have tried but not successful.
$('ul.menu li:contains('contact us')').val('open ticket');

Thank you.
