Hi,

See attached HTML. I want to change the content (<li> list) of a <ul> when specific list items are clicked.

I found the attached Jquery on the web; it doesn't work, you can try it at http://rkassoc.org/Davis/menu/menu_test.htm. Click the top list item (Irrigation).

How can I make this work, Obviously, the replacement list is just a test, real content is more elaborate.

Thanks,

Rkorts

As you have the function before the code actually exists it won't work as it doesn't exist in the DOM yet, you need to either move the jquery to the end of the page or wrap it in a doc ready function e.g.
$(function () {
    $('#irr').click(function () {
        $('#menu').html('<li>Context x</li><li>Context y</li><li>Context z</li>');
    });
})
