This is embarrassing but I have already wasted enough time trying to figure it out.

when I call .load it takes the file name only and not the rest of the path and it calls it relative to the calling file. I need to call a file residing in another folder within the same domain.

Help

var loadURL = "/aaMain/glossary.php";

$("#result").load(loadURL);

it looks for glossary in relative url, not in aaMain!

what about specifying the full path ?
$("#result").load("http://www.yousamedomainandprotocol.com/path/to/aaMain/glossary.php);

Open in new window

I miss the ending double quote :
$("#result").load("http://www.yousamedomainandprotocol.com/path/to/aaMain/glossary.php");

Open in new window

Thanks ... It was my error, I did not add return false; and the code followed the link href that I thought I had disabled.

thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
