jQuery get() is Destructive

Drupal Views Variable Height Content Going Horizontal.

I had the disturbing task of creating a 3-column Homepage layout with nodes of varying height. The challenge here is that floating this content with CSS forces the left columns to have huge blocks of whitespace or empty "real estate" as the CSS engine tries to fill space to the right.

Since the desired effect of "most recent content on the top", multiple views or views displays were for the most part out of the question.


JQuery 'each()' method

Just found this sort of holy grail of JQuery looping. As usual, I have little time to elaborate.... so here's what I did:

To show only a specified number of entries in a tag-set. The example here is on a set of divs with class="comment".

  $('#comments .comment').each
    function (idx)
        $(this).css("display", "none");

This is how I used the each method. (In my usage) each() takes a function as a parameter.
