All I did was point out why imo, (as I stated), your suggestion was less efficient than it could be. It was more for the op's benefit, not yours
But you keep harping on about answering the questions posed and although your suggestion is one possible solution, it doesn't address the op's question at all because the op said
and I don't see any jquery in your code.
Even the title of the thread is
My apologies for the 2nd? 3rd? time.... you win this round *congrats*
However, your solution (while more flexible than mine) did not utilize jquery either.
I work 16+ hrs per day for paying clients and then TRY to offer my help here for FREE when I can. I am not perfect, nor have I ever claimed to be. I do not consider myself the guru of the ever-changing world of web design/coding (which I have been involved in since 1990). That is nearly impossible due to the continual changes made to the various coding languages and browsers!
Yes...there are days that I may not be as "on top of my game" as I should be. However, unless you are perfect in every aspect of your life, I would hope that you could relate to that and be a little less abrasive in your comments.
In that regard, I don't consider 2 responses (ever) to you as "harping" on a topic. If you are that invested in my involvement here, please feel free to go through every post/suggestion I've ever made. I'll be more than happy to give you credit for correcting any misunderstanding of an OP's question and/or my oversight in what their intentions were.
This is not FaceBook. I'm in my 40's, not my teens. In my opinion, this forum shouldn't be drama/ego based. If you have an improvement or correction on any piece of code I've provided, then thank you!!! -- Please post it and then move on. If I've over-looked something vital, made a coding error, or simply wasn't forward-thinking enough, then please feel free to point it out (as you obviously have). I have no problem with that. I just don't see the need to take such an offensive/personal-attack approach instead of simply posting something like, "Hey, I can improve on that last suggestion with...."
I've read many of your posts and you do have some great suggestions, however, your signature is quite off-putting (to me personally). It implies a need to always win every battle, even when there is not a competition in place. If you choose to ignore everyone who may not always agree with your opinion, you simply cloak yourself in false sense of reality.
I wish you the best, but will politely decline from further discussion of this very off-topic subject. If you feel the need to respond again, you are welcome to PM me.</offTopic>
