.hide() appears to be broken?

I can no longer get anything hidden using 1.0a

e.g. $('#jq').find('div').hide();

and code that worked on the compressed version I had previously (Built Fri May 12 13:01:23 2006) no longer works - nothing hidden on page load, no error reported, just doesn't do anything (except show what it shouldn't by default).

The example page is here:

The outcome is different, I discovered when preparing the page,

between IE and FF.

Alright, this was a multipart problem. One part mine, one part yours :) slideDown, hide/show/etc. now work as expected and it's in SVN.

However, there was a bug on your end in the following code, you had:


which hid the div just inside of #jq AND all the divs inside of that div. Whenever you clicked the companies link it would tweak out because it was trying to expand a box that had 'no' content in it (all the content was hidden!).

So, to work around this, you should use this instead:

$('#jq > div').hide();

$('#jq a').click(function(){

var z = $("#jq > div");

if (':visible')) {


} else {



return false;


That, combined, will only toggle the top div - and not the top div and everything inside of it. Hope that helps!
