JQuery Set date in url

error77 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi all,

I am using a JQuery plugin. What I basically need to do it to set a date from a link.

The way I set the date on a page load is the following:

<script language="javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {
         var queryDate = ('2011-05-10');


I need to do the same but I need to create a link on page A and set it from there.

So, Page A link, links to this page and it sets the parameter.

something link: <a href="index.php?"mydate"">link to main page</a>

Does it make sense?
