jquery question

I'm adding a button to all gallery images on a wordpress page.

how can I get this script to apply to each .gallery-icon element on the page.. there may be hundreds in the gallery. Seems to me this should use implicit interation but it only seems to  target the first occurence.  How can I get it to apply to every matching element in the dom?

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

			
			$(".gallery-icon a:first").after("<a href='"+$(".gallery-icon a:first").attr('href')+"' title='testing' download=''>Hello</a>");
		
});

Hi,
can you post a link to your page, so that we can see the actual structure?

Just a guess - not tested:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

			
			$(".gallery-icon a:first").each(function () { $(this).after("<a href='"+$(this).attr('href')+"' title='testing' download=''>Hello</a>"); });		
});

I'm trying to add a link (in this case 'hello') below the image.   But the loop doesn't iterate through all images, just applies the link to the first one.

you can see it in there now... the hello link should be under each image with the respective href url applied but it doesn't seem to work..

My loop is loopy

Here you go.

$(".gallery-icon").each(function(i,e) {
   var link = $('a:first', this);
   newLink = $('<a>').attr('href', link.attr('href')).text('Hello');
   link.after(newLink);
});
