Hello all,

I have a question about adding hashtags to end of url to execute a jquery function...

I use the following code to slide up div when clicked on a link in a single page site...

I want to try and use back button functionallity and more importantly bookmarking on this page so that when one goes to: myurl.com#hashtag the jquery statement now only triggered by clicking the set link is also executed... How would I have to (re)write the following code to realise this? I have commented out the event.preventDefault(); to get the hashtag added to the url... But whats next?

Tyvm in advance for any tips and suggestions in the right direction...

<!-- The link in html page -->
<a href="#hashtag" class="hashtag" title="hashtag test">Slide up footer </a>

<!-- Button hashtag -->
$("a.hashtag").click(function(event) {
// event.preventDefault();
$("#fullWidthFooter").animate({'height': '50'}, 1400, 'easeOutBounce');
});

Open in new window

Hello and ty for your reply...

What would I have to change in given jquery statement to execute the jquery function not only when supplied link is clicked but if one was to visit the page using example url: myurl.com#hashtag... The current statement slides in the footer div only when you would click the sample link while visiting the page... I would like to have the footer div also slide out if you would enter the url: myurl.com#hashtag directly in your addressbar...

that you do, by page.ready event, check if the hastag is the one you are looking for and then run the function

you can check the hash tag using
window.location.hash
on document.ready event if hash tag matches fire event handler you want to.
