How do I use jQuery to make sure all elements contained within a certain element (identified by class) become clickable and inherit the href url from a nested a tag?

Please visit this page:
http://www.clarktogei.jp/%E3%81%94%E6%8C%A8%E6%8B%B6/

At the bottom of the page you will see three icons (pointing to other blog items). They are divs with class .item

Inside each there is an a href link.
I would like to be able to click any element within div.item (including div.item) and be able to go to the href of the nested a tag.

Please help

thanks in advance

Hi,
you might try the jQuery code from this sample:

I used your classes - so copy&paste and replacing the alert with the window.location = targetUrl should hopefully work.
