    Might be that I’ve become blind to the code, but for the love of god I cannot figure out whats wrong and why it does not work. If someone who knows about jQuery would take a moment to review (it’s relatively small file) and troubleshoot it to me, I’d be very grateful!

    It took a long time to spot, but i think this should be the right code:

    You have a few problems with wrong numbers of brackets. Have a look at this code, and yours. You must make sure that every open bracket gets closed.

    Indeed, love how blind I can be at times. :) Thanks.
