replace backgrounf images on page with a new image


Recommended Posts


I have some background images on the page, however, I want to replace them with a new background image using jQuery.

I have this, but it doesn't work:

$('td.my class').css('background-image','url(http://www.mywebsite.com/new-image.png)');

Any ideas what I have wrong?

Actually, the selector "td.my class" looks for an XML tag named <class> which is a child of a <td> element with a class of 'my'. Class attributes in HTML can be space-separated lists of class names, so as to assign multiple class names to an element.

Do you literally have <td class="my class"> in your HTML? If so, try querying $('td.my.class').
