$() is not in the API documentation

Since $('my selector') is pretty much the *core* API for using jQuery, it would be nice if it was *present* at all; and preferably up front (say, first); in the API docs.


I can't even find $( on that page. Pretty big omission for anybody, starting from first principles, figuring out what that $('#myContentDiv') expression is meant to do.

I'll raise it as a DOCS BUG since $ is the primary jQuery API.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

jQuery() is the long name for $(), most intros to jQuery will mention this. We've never had this issue brought up before so I am going to assume most people found their way to it.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
