Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    if window location contains text/parameter...

    hi guys,

    I'm working on a script where I need to get some information from the url...I've used 'location.href' etc..but i'm not getting anywhere at the moment (does it matter if the js file is external?).

    But anyway, basically I need to extract the #info from my url i.e. www.example.com/#info. and if (location.href contains == #info) { function1(); } etc...

    sorry I bet sounds really confusing...But if you can help in anyway that would be great.

    while ( ! ( succeed = try() ) );

    woo fixed it... just used = location.hash . works like a charm..

    for people who might be in a similar situation i just did something like this:

    if(location.hash == "#info"){
    while ( ! ( succeed = try() ) );
