Add class to first link or third link

The below add a class to the first link. Can also be used for any number using nth

<p id="list">

<a href="#" class="item">Item One</a> - <a href="#" class="item">Item Two</a> - <a href="#" class="item">Item Three</a>


<script>$("p#list a").first().addClass('highlight');</script>

So to add a class to every third item

<ul id="List">
<li>number 1</li>
    <li>number 2</li>
    <li>number 3</li>
    <li>number 4</li>
    <li>number 5</li>
    <li>number 6</li>
    <li>number 7</li>
    <li>number 8</li>
    <li>number 9</li>
    <li>number 10</li>
    <li>number 11</li>
    <li>number 12</li>

<script type="text/javascript">
$("ul#List li:nth-child(3n)").addClass("third")

wedding invitation

I designed and created the stationary for my sister's wedding, which included invitations, menus, place settings and order of service. They all had swarovski heat stuck on for extra glamour.

Simple way to add class on hover with jQuery

If you need to add a class on hover the best way to do it is with jQuery

<html xmlns="">


<script src='' type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

    $(document).ready(function() {

       $('.myDiv').hover(function() {


}, function() {







<div class="myDiv">This is my new Div</div>



Numbered List with Jquery

Obviously you can use an ordered list to create the number in front of a list, however this is often hard to style and cumbersome. Instead jQuery can create a simple numbered list:

<script type="text/javascript">


$("#List li").each(function (i) {

i = i+1;

$(this).prepend('<span class="commentnumber"> '+i+'. </span>');




with the html

<ul id="List">

    <li>first list item</li>

    <li>second list item</li>

    <li>third list item</li>


Been a While

As a belated new years resolution, I will try and keep the blog updated once more
