I can't seem to figure out a good way to do this, but it seems like it should be simple. I have an element that I want to
append a div to. Then I have another element that I want to clone and shove into that intermediate div. Here's what I was hoping to do:
$("#somediv > ul").after("<div id='xxx'></div>").append($("#someotherdiv").clone());
This seems to be close, but not quite there. The problem with this is that the "append" seems to be operating on the original
#somediv > ul selector. This sort of makes sense, but it's not what I wanted. How can I most efficiently select that intermediate div that I added with the
after and put my
#someotherdiv into it?
