Button doesn't work inside div, but works outside

Hi guys and thanks in advance for your help.

Hi guys and thanks in advance for your help.

I'm quite inexperienced with Ajax and I have been having a problem with something I have been trying to do. Its a basic notifications container using <div> and some other elements.

Problem is, I can't seem to get any buttons to work inside the div. My latest attempt is a 'Mark All Read' button at the bottom, using ajax, calling a php file (currently only has an echo for testing).

Any ideas on what i'm missing?

This is the button line, which sits inside another container for the notifications.

<div id="markallread" class="markAll">
    <input type="button" id="markallr" value="Mark All as Read" class="button">

And the ajax I have:

$(document).ready(function () {
    $("#markallr").click(function () {
            url : '../markread.php',
            type : 'POST',
            success : function () {  
                alert ("YES");
            error : function () {
                alert ("NO");

PHP file, like I have said is just an echo for testing.

<?php echo "Success"; ?>

Now, I can place the button at the top of the page, outside of the container, and it gives me the Alert 'Yes' but doesn't run the php file. Soon as I place it anywhere in the container, I lose all function.
