dear support,

The very simple script below does not give same result !!

expected result: only even divs have orange background.

obtained result: all divs have orange background.

workaround: using jQuery-1.7.1.js solves the issue.

test env: Windows 8, IE10 and Chrome.

thanks and best regards,


(function ($) {

$.expr[':'].myEven = function(elem,idx,meta,items){

return (idx % 2 === 0);



$(document).ready(function () { $('div:myEven').css('background-color', 'orange');



<h1> Custom selector </h1>

<div> Div01 </div>

<div> Div02 </div>

<div> Div03 </div>

<div> Div04 </div>

<div> Div05 </div>

<div> Div06 </div>

<div> Div07 </div>

<div> Div08 </div>

<div> Div09 </div>

<div> Div10 </div>

They changed Sizzle. The new syntax is:

(function ($) {
    // Both functions need to be marked as a pseudo, otherwise you don't have access to the indexes
    $.expr.pseudos.myEven = $.expr.createPseudo(function() {
        return $.expr.createPseudo(function(input, output){
            for(var i = 0; i < input.length; i += 2) {
