I have the following that works in firefox, but not in IE.  The idea is to load two separate files into two separate divs with the one click.

      $(function(){      
            $('.loadcomp').click(function(){
            $("#thebody").html('<p><img src="../images/loading.png"  /></p>');
             $("#thebody").load(this.href);
             $("#innerindex").load('theindex.php');
            return false;
        });

Try :

$(function(){      
     $('.loadcomp').click(function(e){
         e.preventDefault();
         $("#thebody").html('<p><img src="../images/loading.png"  /></p>');
         $("#thebody").load(this.href);
         $("#innerindex").load('theindex.php');
         return false;
     });
});

Didn't work I'm afraid.  It actually broke the other links.  Instead of loading into a div, it tried to load each as a new page and not into the div.  Not sure what the e.preventDefault does but it didn't work in my case.

I don't understand could you explain some more.  Also can you please explain what the e.preventDefault does.   I have seen .click(function(e before but not clear on what it is for.

Because of your comments, I did manage to fix it by using previous code.  I was rewriting the function elsewhere it seemed.  Could you please explain the .click(function(e) please

because of your comment I was able to fix it using my original code.  I was rewriting the function.  Could you please still explain the .click(function(e) so I understand this

you put return false line 7, you know what happen ;)
preventDefault do more : http://api.jquery.com/event.preventDefault/

Else check this, you write over the script itself

<div id="Homer">
<script>
      //ready ?
      $("#Homer").load("donuts.php");
      // lucky if it run
      // lucky if it run
      // lucky if it run
      // lucky if it run
</script>
</div>

Open in new window


It is just a supposition, because I did not see your page...
