The append() and prepend() methods
Adding new stuff to existing elements is very easy with jQuery. There are methods for appending or prepending, taking HTML in string format, DOM elements and jQuery objects as parameters. In the next example, you will see how easy it is to insert new elements in a list, using both the append() and the prepend() method:
There are variations of the append() and prepend() methods, called appendTo() and prependTo(). They do pretty much the same, but they do it the other way around, so instead of calling them on the elements you wish to append/prepend to, with a parameter of what is to be appended/prepended, you do the exact opposite. Which to use obviously depends on the situation, but here's an example showing you how to use them both:
In this example, we prepend the items, but you could of course do the exact same using append() and appendTo(). As you can see, the result is the same - only the order of what we do differs.
