For some reason it works the first time but the second item clicked staggers away with the rest while the first item clicked remains visible. It is pretty weird



my javascript code:

  var children = $('.icons').children();
  var icons = new TimelineLite({paused:true});
children.click(function(event) {
      var siblings = $(this).siblings()
      span = $(this).find("span").first()
      content = $(this).find("div")
      h1 = content.find("h2")
      li = content.find("li")
      clicks =  $(this).data('clicks');
      icons.staggerTo(siblings, 1.3, {left:"-150%", ease:Back.easeIn}, 0.1)
  if (clicks) {
     TweenMax.to(span, 1, {opacity:0, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(content, 1, {display:"none", delay:1.5, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(h1, 1, {opacity:0, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(li, 1, {opacity:0, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     setTimeout(function(){ icons.reverse(); }, 500);
  } else {
     TweenMax.to(span, 1, {opacity:0, delay:1.5, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(content, 0, {display:"block", delay:1.5, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(h1, 1, {opacity:1, delay:1.5, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(li, 1, {opacity:1, delay:1.5, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
     TweenMax.to(this, 1, {width:"46%", top:"2em", left:"-2%", delay:1.5, ease:Power2.easeInOut})
  $(this).data("clicks", !clicks);

This seems like much more of a jQuery question related to finding parents and sibilings than anything to do with GSAP.


However, I took your code and very roughly put together an animation that I think works for you.

The HTML and css is very rough.


I just wanted to show that you could click on a red box (less code than your svgs) to hide the icons you didn't click on and then animate things related to the red box you did click on.
