Hello,
I have a very simple question that after looking through the API of jQuery and through this forum, I"m a bit stuck on...

I'm trying to target the second element of a ul based menu.

I have code that works for the first. This basically opens a sub ul menu on page load. I want the second to load on another page.

HTML Example:

noaccordion : no accordion functionality
collapsible : menu works like an accordion but can be fully collapsed
expandfirst : first menu item expanded at page load

<ul id="menu1" class="menu [optional class] [optional class]">
<li><a href="#">Sub menu heading</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://site.com/">Link</a></li>
<li><a href="http://site.com/">Link</a></li>
<li><a href="http://site.com/">Link</a></li>
...
...
</ul>
<li><a href="#">Sub menu heading</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://site.com/">Link</a></li>
<li><a href="http://site.com/">Link</a></li>
<li><a href="http://site.com/">Link</a></li>
...
...
</ul>
...
...
</ul>

JS

function initMenus() {
$('ul.menu ul').hide();

$.each($('ul.menu'), function(){
$('#' + this.id + '.expandfirst ul:first').show();
});

$('ul.menu li a').click(
function() {
var checkElement = $(this).next();
var parent = this.parentNode.parentNode;

if($(parent).hasClass('noaccordion')) {
$(this).next().slideToggle('normal');
return false;
}

if((checkElement.is('ul')) && ($(this).hasClass("activeLink"))) {
if($(parent).hasClass('collapsible')) {
$("ul:visible", parent).slideUp('normal');

}
$(this).removeClass("activeLink");
return false;
}

if((checkElement.is('ul')) && (!$(this).hasClass("activeLink"))) {
$("ul:visible", parent).slideUp('normal');
checkElement.slideDown('normal');
$("a.activeLink", parent).removeClass("activeLink");
$(this).addClass("activeLink");
return false;
}

if(!(checkElement.is('ul'))) {
check2 = $("a.activeLink", parent).next();
if (check2.is('ul')) {
check2.slideUp('normal');
}
$("ul:visible", parent).slideUp('normal');
$("a.activeLink").removeClass("activeLink");
$(this).addClass("activeLink");
}
}
);
}
$(document).ready(function() {initMenus();});



Thank you so much for your time in advance, its much appreciated.
