    My mind is turning to mush and Google isn’t helping me out on this one, perhaps I’m not describing what I want accurately.

    Basically I want the contents of a single DIV to change based on which image someone clicks.

    Link 1 | Link 2 | Link 3

    Content Changes depending on which Link is clicked

    If someone could help point me in the right direct.. i’d appreciate it

    @JoeBrooks,

    Do you want to change the actual content with javascript on a click or possibly show or hide the content based on clicks?

    Here is a CodePen you can check out. Simply doing exactly what you want, change the content based upon which link is clicked.

    I would like to show / hide content for each link.

    For some reason in your example when I move my mouse out of the clickable area it reverts back to the original. I would like the new state to stay visable.

    @JoeBrooks ,

    Yeah, i added a mouseleave event to clear out the div. Changed it so the content stays as when you leave.

    @JoeBrooks,

    No problem! Are you just doing simple stuff like putting image descriptions or more complex content?

    It’s for a biography page on my client’s site.

    What they want is three photos , and when one photo is clicked the person’s bio appears beneath.

    What you have works on codepen.. I have ZERO experience with JS or Jquery, how do I go about converting the JS column into a script ?

    This is my [New Codepen](http://codepen.io/anon/pen/oDCmB)

    Step 1 (Adding jQuery library)

    <!DOCTYPE hmtl>
    <html>
    <head>
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
    </head>

    Step 2 (Add your jquery code)

    <head>
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script>
    $(function() {
    $('#aardvark').click(function() {
    $('div').html('The text you are adding');
    });
    });
    <script>
    </head>

    Nice use-case, you need anymore help man just reply.

    And it’s actually for the mobile version of the site.

    Here is the page: http://tomroof.com/tinymonster/about-us/

    I have another question. Instead of rewriting the text inside the script, is there a way to call on a Custom Field slug’s text instead? IE

    ID, ‘profile2’, true); ?>

    Would you rather just have javascript collect data, that is already on the page, and enter it rather then typing it all?

    I’m trying to get this to work in wordpress. Not sure I put the code in the header properly. Any suggestions? (Ignore the fact that the css messed up the rest of the page)

    [edit]

    nvm, I found this article and seem to have gotten it working:

    @JoshBlackwood! I’ve been after a piece of code like this forever, thanks!

    Just wondering now if you could add a sliding animation rather than it just abruptly disappearing?

    I’ve tried incorporating .slideUp(), slideDown() and .slideToggle(). No luck though, ’cause I’m not the best with JS/jQuery.

    Any help would be smashing!

    @JohnMotylJr

    Hey man. I am trying to use this code to load videos from Vimeo.

    I tried using the iframe code on your codepen page instead of the text and it worked like a charm.

    However when I try and apply it to my own page using the same code – it doesn’t do anything. I have checked and re-checked for errors but everything seems in place.

    Might you have any idea why it just might not be functioning?

    Thanks for your help!
