    It should read:

    Code:
    $("#works").append
    or if there's the potential for conflicts with other libraries use this:

    Code:
    jQuery("#works").append

    I tried both suggestions but neither is working for some reason. Is .append() the correct event ? I've also tried appendTo() and html() and neither seems to work.

    Code:
    $(window).on("load",function () {
    		jQuery("#works").append(' 
              <a id="port"   rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work html" src="images/photos/Gartner.jpg" alt="Gartner" /> </a> 
             
              <a id="port-2" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work html" src="images/photos/MasterCard.jpg" alt="MasterCard" /> </a>
         
              <a id="port-3" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work js" src="images/photos/FYI.jpg" alt="FYI FreeScore.com" /> </a>
              
              <a id="port-4" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work css" src="images/photos/IAMSC.jpg" alt="IAMS Daily Cats" /> </a>
                        
              <a id="port-5" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work js" src="images/photos/PeoplesWM.jpg" alt="Peoples United Bank Wealth Managament" /> </a>
                       
              <a id="port-6" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work js" src="images/photos/PeoplesFA.jpg" alt="Peoples United Bank Financial Advisors" /> </a>
              
              <a id="port-7" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work html" src="./images/photos/MacHeist.jpg" alt="MacHeist Black Friday App Sale" /> </a>
                       
              <a id="port-8" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work flash" src="images/photos/Kraft.jpg" alt="Kraft DiGiorno Pizza Ad" /> </a>
              
              <a id="port-9" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work flash" src="images/photos/CAClosets.jpg" alt="California Closets Ad" /> </a>

              <a id="port-12" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work css" src="images/photos/IAMSD.jpg" alt="IAMS Daily Dogs" /></a>
              
    		');
    	});

    Make sure you put your code between document.ready.

    Code:
    $(document).ready(function(){
      ("#works").append(' 
        ... code here ...
      ');
    });

    append() is now loading content into a div #works on my index.html. I have a filter in place to hide and show the appended content based on the elements class (eg. .css, .js, .html).

    for some reason my filter is no longer working. I have tried applying .live() , .on() , and .bind( ) to my filter but it is still not working.

    Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

    filter code:
    Code:
        $('#works_filter a').live('click',function() {
                var selector = $(this).attr('data-filter');
                $('div#works').isotope({
                    filter: selector,
                    itemSelector: 'img.work',
                    layoutMode: 'fitRows'
                });
        
                $('#works_filter').find('a.selected').removeClass('selected');
                $(this).addClass('selected');
            
                return false;
            });
    appended content:
    Code:
        $(window).load(function(){
        
        		$("#works").append('<a id="port" rel="nofollow" href="#"><img class="work html" src="images/photos/Gartner.jpg" alt="Gartner" /></a> <a id="port-2" rel="nofollow" href="#"><img class="work html" src="images/photos/MasterCard.jpg" alt="MasterCard" /></a> <a id="port-3" rel="nofollow" href="#"><img class="work js" src="images/photos/FYI.jpg" alt="FYI FreeScore.com" /></a> <a id="port-4" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work css" src="images/photos/IAMSC.jpg" alt="IAMS Daily Cats" /></a> <a id="port-5" rel="nofollow" href="#"><img class="work js" src="images/photos/PeoplesWM.jpg" alt="Peoples United Bank Wealth Managament" /></a>  <a id="port-6" rel="nofollow" href="#"> <img class="work js" src="images/photos/PeoplesFA.jpg" alt="Peoples United Bank Financial Advisors" /></a>');
        		});
