Control animation with parameters in url

Hello all,

I have a navigation bar with 5 buttons... two of these (about - contact) buttons trigger jquery aninmation on my homepage - sliding in a div from the bottom with 'about' content and another div sliding in with 'contact' details... The other 3 buttons move you to another page...

When on these other pages then the homepage...
I click on lets say contact and redirect the visitor back to the homepage I would like to have the animation triggered that slides in the contactdiv and if you had pressed 'about' you would go back and the about animation would start...

I dont know what the words are here to use in searches in google... I tried queries like control jquery animations with link parameters etc.. but nthing what im looking for...

Can anyone send me in the direction of the right technique to accomplish this?!

Tnx for any replies

wkr

Do you use the same navigation and animation on all pages of the site?  What's the URL so we can see the effect?

ty for your reply!

navigation is same on all pages... Animation for contact and about only happens on the homepage not the other pages...

I figure that you could just include say a contact html file in every page and let the animation take place on every page.... or something like that....

But for now im focussing on animation only on the homepage.. .which is set off by clicked links on external pages...

The whole five buttons scenario is fictional so i would have to set that up first if necessary for you to be able to anwser...

please let me know and i will do this asap...

tyvm 4 ur time!

Another scenario then...

On the homepage a link to an interview on a media page...

The interviews on the media page are in a hidden div inside an accordion... The top panel of the accordion always contains the interview you link to from the homepage...

So the link on the homepage would have to tell the artist detailpage to start the animation of the hidden div in to the screen (the top panel of accordion ill prob. just have open by default in settings accordion)

Which technique do you use...???

Better example?

Usually information is passed from page to page in the URL string - also called a GET argument.  If the information is sensitive and you do not want to expose it, you can pass it in the session array.
