Hello,

I have an onclick js function.  The function works well with passing the querystring parameters in the URL, but I need to add a few more lines to do the following:

If "capability_page" URL parameter exists in URL, remove it.

I imagine that it is rather simple to determine if a parameter exists within the URL?  Don't know how difficult it is to remove a URL parameter.

Any js gurus out there that can help?

Thank you,
Jayme

  if variable "url" contains the string, then you can:

  url = url.replace( /\bcapability_page\b/, '' );

the querystring is at "location.search". replacing it with another value will reload the page.
The code would've been: location.search = location.search.replace(/[\?&]capability_page(?:=[^&]*)?/,'')

Ooops, actually it'd be
   location.search = location.search.replace(/([\?&])q(?:=[^&]*)?/,'$1')

It may or may not be what you're looking for but try it.
