Remove Specific Value from Array

var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
var removeItem = 2;   
arr = $.grep(arr, function(value) {
  return value != removeItem;


  1. Missing semicolon on the first line, other than that, cool beans

    Why not use native functions?
    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    var removeItem = 2;
    arr.splice(arr.indexOf(removeItem ), 1);

    Exist Splice() method, the method it remove item from the index in the array.

    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    var removindexitem = 2;

    arr.splice(removindexitem );

      You would need to know the index of the value in the array for this to work. This is not always guaranteed, plus also native indexOf does not work on versions of IE below IE9.

    array.pull(value); //remove
    array.push(value); //add

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
