How can I fix this javascript function to be compatible with JQuery v1.11.3 ?

I'm in the process of re-building a site that was using an old version of JQuery, and I'm noticing that since I've upgraded to JQuery version 1.11.3, .. some of the functions appear to have been deprecated ... at least 1 in particular:

For example .. this one function is throwing an error ( ie: Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: a.[id^='enlarge'] ):

$("a.[id^='enlarge']").each(function(i) {
	if ($(this).attr("href") != "#") {
		var thisid = $(this).attr("id").replace(/enlarge/, '');

Open in new window

How can I re-write this code snippet so that it's compatible with JQuery v1.11.3 ?

Just looks like a typo to me. Should be without the dot:

Open in new window

Meaning anchor tags that have a id starting with the word 'enlarge'.
