    What im trying to do is remove a class if there is a certain class inside of it. I am customizing a wordpress theme and for text widgets I dont want a certain class. Here is what I have so far with jquery but it doesnt seem to work for me. I am kinda new to jquery. So cut me some slack.

    $(document).ready(function() {
    // do stuff when DOM is ready

    if ($(".custom-sidebar).hasClass("textwidget")) {

    I may have a syntax error, or I could be way off. But what I want is:

    if .custom-side has a class of textwidget inside then RemoveClass bkp-frame-wrapper
    thanks for any help guys


    EDIT: removed as it didn’t answer the question.


    @joshuanhibbert That checks if the .custom-sidebar has the class textwidget, not if it contains an element with the class textwidget, no?

    I thought it was the latter; check if the sidebar contains a textwidget, and if it does, remove the class from the sidebar. For that I would use this:

    $('.custom-sidebar .textwidget').parent().removeClass('bkp-frame-wrapper');

    (also, that aside, @joshuanhibbert, I can’t get your code to work, what am I missing?! )


    This is because hasClass returns True/False so you’re not using the initial object anymore.


    Try this:

    return $(this).hasClass('textwidget');


    @Senff Right, it pays to read the question correctly…


    Thanks for all the help guys.
