I am having trouble with jquery modal with multiple id's


I am completely new to jQuery and I have the following script from jquery library. On a single page i have multiple link that when user clicks on it, a dialogue message pops up. So far this is my code. My question is what if I have about 30 links on a single page, should i create a new jquery function over and over again with different ids? How?

<script> $(function() { $( "#dialog1" ).dialog({ autoOpen: false, show: { effect: "blind", duration: 1000 }, hide: { effect: "explode", duration: 1000 } }); $( "#opener1" ).click(function() { $( "#dialog1" ).dialog( "open" ); }); }); $(function() { $( "#dialog2" ).dialog({ autoOpen: false, show: { effect: "blind", duration: 1000 }, hide: { effect: "explode", duration: 1000 } }); $( "#opener2" ).click(function() { $( "#dialog2" ).dialog( "open" ); }); }); </script>

I also have the following html

<div title="click to view details"> <a href="#" class="p1" rel="nofollow" aria-haspopup="false" id="opener1"></a> <p id="dialog1"> <strong>Monkey</strong>Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent. Unlike apes, monkeys usually have tails.

<b class="b1"></b> </div> <div title="click to view details"> <a href="#" class="p2" rel="nofollow" aria-haspopup="false" id="opener2"></a> <p id="dialog2"> <strong>Vulture</strong>A particular characteristic of many vultures is a bald head, devoid of normal feathers.

<b class="b2"></b> </div>


You have at least 2 ways to accomplish this task. Probably the best is to use classes, so you use the same class on links you want to manage, and then you use the <a href="http://api.jquery.com/class-selector/" rel="nofollow">class selector</a> to bind actions to them. Another way could be the use of the <a href="http://api.jquery.com/each/" rel="nofollow">each</a> function on the a tag. I don't think that in your case this is the best solution, but it's just to say that in some circumstances you can use this solution, too.
