Hey All,

Simple question I hope can be answered. 

At the moment when .card is clicked all the divs with the class .card animate.

I only want to animate the .card div that is clicked. 


I've experimented heaps with $(this) selection and I can't get it to work as intended.

Any help is much appreciated.


Thanks all.

Thank you. Nice one. That worked. 
Can $(this) selector not work inside a seperate function?

Thanks again.

If you want to push this out to a separate function, you'll have to pass $(this) as a function parameter. e.g.


$('.selector').click( function(){

  someFunction( $(this) );



function someFunction( el ){

  // do something with el
