jQuery Question

Changing divs with Jquery

I am currently trying to change the position of a few

using jquery. My main idea is that when I click the left arrow, the div assigned to the specific location swaps places with the one on the left, when I click it again it swaps places with the div further on the left. When I click the right arrow, the same thing happens but for elements on the right side.

Here is my HTML code:

<input type ="radio" name ="tabs" id = "tab-2">
<label for="tab-2"><i class="fa fa-newspaper-o fa-3x" aria-hidden="true" id="paper"></i><div class ="news">LATEST NEWS</div></label>
<div class ="tab-content-two">
<h3 id="latest-news">Latest News</h3>
<i class="fa fa-angle-left" id="left"></i>
<i class="fa fa-angle-right" id="right"></i>

<img src = "img/1.jpg" id ="first-img">
<div class ="hilight" id="img-text">
<h4 id="news">Latest News Story<br>Title Example</h4>

<img src ="img/2.jpg" id ="second-img">
<div class ="hilight-two"id="img-text">
<h4 id="news">Latest News Story<br>Title Example</h4>

<img src ="img/3.jpg" id ="third-img">
<div class ="hilight-big" id ="full-text">
<h4 id="news-big">Latest News Story<br>Title Example</h4>
<p id="date">14/02/2016</p>
<p id ="text-big">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,<br>
consectetur adipiscing elit.<br>
Phasellus imperdiet orci..
<button type="button" id ="button-reading">CONTINUE READING <i class="fa fa-angle-right" id="reading"></button></i>


<img src ="img/4.jpg" id ="fourth-img">
<div class ="hilight-three"d="img-text">
<h4 id="news">Latest News Story<br>Title Example</h4>

And here is the jquery I'm trying to build in order to achieve this:

$( "left" ).click(function() {
$( hilight-two ).replaceWith( "<div>" + $( text-big ).text() + "</div>" );

$( "right" ).click(function() {
$( hilight-two ).replaceWith( "<div>" + $( text-big ).text() + "</div>" );

I've attached a JS Fiddle in order to have a better idea.

I made hilight a class to group all the divs and added modified your click handlers to

$( "#left" ).click(function() {
  var news = $(".hilight");
  var head = news.first().html();
  var length = news.length;
  for(var i = 0; i < length - 1; i++) {
      news.eq(i).html(news.eq(i + 1).html());
  news.eq(length - 1).html(head);

$( "#right" ).click(function() {
     var news = $(".hilight");
   var tail = news.last().html();
   var length = news.length;
   for(var i = length - 1; i > 0; i--) {
       news.eq(i).html(news.eq(i - 1).html());

I changed your css and your html a bit to use more classes and less id's. Here is the updated JSFiddle

Hopefully this will get you started
