Jquery not working in IE 10

Last Modified: 2014-09-29
I have a jquery function that toggles see more + and see less+ off and on which works fine in Firefox and Chrome. It does not work in Internet Explorer 10 (but does seem to work in IE9).
Below is the script

      $("p[id^='seeall']").click(function() {
            var $this = $(this);
      if ('see more +' == $this.text( )) {
    $this.text('see less -').parent( ).find('.hidden').show( );
    else {
    $this.text('see more +').parent( ).find('.hidden').hide( );

You can see the See more+ see less+ on the right hand side underneath the light blue bar "Name"

Working fine, do an hard refresh - maybe you have an old cached file.

In an emulator, there is nothing in the code that would break in IE

Just double check you're not in compatibility mode (even though it works in previous versions as well)

You were so right. The user was in compatibility mode. Once I took her out it worked fine.
Thank you so much!!
