Hi E's,
I have this code, with some <br> tags:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Access and remove elements</title>
<script src="../../ficheiros_apoio/jquery.min.js"></script> 
</head>
<body>
<a class="access_remove">click here to access and remove <br></a>
<p>this is a phrase with some<br><br>we continue with more breaks<br>hello again</p>
<div>this is a line with breaks<br></div>
<a>this line break is for remove<br><br></a>
<p>thank you<br>for all</p>
<script>
$(".access_remove").click(function(){
     //?????????????????????????????
     });
</script>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

I need to access/remove the <br>'s (<br><br>) in this line
<a>this line break is for remove<br><br></a>
How I do that?

The best regards, JC

You have nothing to identify the element with and there is no point giving code based on a structure that is probably not the actual way it will look

Hi @leakim971, you solution just remove one <br>, and I need to remove all <br>'s of the line.

@gary
, suppose in my code I identify the elements, how I remove the br's?
<a class="access_remove">click here to access and remove <br></a>
<p class="first_p">this is a phrase with some<br><br>we continue with more breaks<br>hello again</p>
<div id="new_id">this is a line with breaks<br></div>
<a class="first_a">this line break is for remove<br><br></a>
<p class="second_p">thank you<br>for all</p>

Then it's easy
http://jsfiddle.net/upjo6jmg/2/
$(".access_remove").click(function(){
$(".first_a").html($(".first_a").html().replace("<br><br>",""))
})
