I am trying to get this element in the above page to fade in / out with the jquery function:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
  $('a.link').click(function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    $.get($(this).attr('href'),{},function(data) {
       $('#result').html(data);
    }); // <= missing in original script
  });
})</script>

Have a look at this page.  
http://www.landonbaseball.com/

It creates a fade-in / face-out effect, presenting a caption over the banner image when you mouse-over the image.  You can use view source to see the jquery statements near line 45, showing in the snippet below.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script>
  $("#banner_image").ready(function () {
  $("#banner_image").fadeTo(3000, 0.001, "swing");
  $("#banner_image").hover(
        function() {
            $("#banner_image").stop(true).fadeTo(250, 1.0, "swing");
        },
        function() {
            $("#banner_image").fadeTo(2000, 0.001, "swing");
        }
     );
  });
</script>

Open in new window

In my experiments with fadeTo(), I found that a value of 0.001 was sufficient to become invisible and a value of 0 created some quirkiness when I wanted the page element to fade back into view.

Ray PaseurCommented:
Well for starters you might want to fix the place where there is an id attribute inside the style attribute.  You can usually catch these things is you use the W3C Validator.

I'll see if I can come up with a better example for you.

$(document).ready(function () {
  $('#hideThing').click(function() {
    $('#thing').fadeOut(1000, function() {
      alert('Hide Done');
    });
  });

  $('#showThing').click(function() {
    $('#thing').fadeIn(1000, function() {
      alert('Show Done');
    });
  });
});
</script>

</head>
<body>
<a id="hideThing">Click Me (Hide)</a>
<a id="showThing">Click Me (Show)</a>
<br/>

<div id="thing">ggggg</div>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

Starting with that platform you can add in the additional styling incrementally, testing along the way.  At some point you will be able to take out the alert() calls.  They are just there to provide confirmation that the actions were executed.
