Jquery ‘remove class’ – trying to remove all elements with a particular class

jqueryremoveclass

So I have 2 divs, each with n-elements.
There are n-pairs of elements across the 2 divs.
Each pair uses the same 'class'.

Is it possible to remove a particular pair at a time? I currently am using the following code:

    function leaveGroup(id)
    {

        var e = document.getElementById(id);
        var f = $(e).parentNode;

        // Remove everything with the same class name of the parent
        $('body').removeClass($(f).className);

    }

The function isn't working, am I using class names incorrectly?
Thanks!

Best Solution

$('.el').remove() 
// would remove all elements with the 'el' className

I believe this is what you want. removeClass removes a class. remove removes the element.
