PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser find direct LI elements

HTML:

<ul>
<li><a></a>
<ul>
<li></li>
<li></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>
...
</li>
</ul>


For parent
ul:first-of-type
, what would be the selector for it's (direct) child
li
elements, in order to parse the descendant
li
elements separately?

Answer

In Jquery you can simply use this selector : ul > li

Update:-

Using Simple DOM:-

<ul class="listitems">
 <li><a></a>
  <ul>
   <li></li>
   <li></li>
  </ul>
 </li>
 <li>
  ...
 </li>
</ul>

Simple HTML Dom code to get just the first level li items:

$html = file_get_html( $url );
$first_level_items = $html->find( '.listitems', 0)->children();

foreach ( $first_level_items as $item ) {
    ... do stuff ...
}
