.load() with VAR not working! PLEASE HELP!

Please can someone help with this simple problem!

In this example, only the contents of a div called #business-services-info should be loaded in from the what-cms.php page, not the full page.

Can anyone explain why the .load() event is ignoring my var (ahash) as the target div location to fetch the data from?

http://ag-chartered-accountants.com/dynamic/page3.php#business-services-info

The code:

<body>

<script type="text/javascript">

$(window).load (function() {
var ahash = new String(window.location.hash);
if ("ahash:contains('#')")
 {
 $('#stuff').load('what-cms.php' + ahash);
alert("jQuery should now load the contents of the DIV called " + ahash + ", from the page what-cms.php in to the below DIV called stuff");
}
 }
 else {
  $('#stuff').load('what-cms.php #what-info');
      alert("No hash to load so defult data will be loaded");
 }
});
</script>

<div><a href="#business-services-info">my div</a></div>
<div id="stuff">Loading...</div>

</body>

replace line 7 by :
 if( ahash != "" )

Open in new window

or if you prefer :
 if( ahash.indexOf('#') == 0)

Open in new window

Many thanks for your reply. However this is not the problem.

The problem I need solving, is getting the jQuery .load() event to accept my variable (ahash) as the reference to the required div to load in.

So if the url in the address bar ends in #business-services-info, the jQuery .load() event will use this as the target div.

Code to get the hash part of the url:

var ahash = new String(window.location.hash);

Code to load data using the ahash variable as the refernce to the required div to be imported:

$('#stuff').load('what-cms.php' + ahash);


Problem:

The div request part of the .load() event is ignored and the whole page is being wrongly loaded in


Thanks :o)

Try (put a space after what-cms.php) : $('#stuff').load('what-cms.php ' + ahash);
