Hi all,

I am having an issue with some code as it's not working for some reason. I wonder if anyone could spot what the problem is.

I'll explain:

In an external JS file I have this code:

$("a").click(function() { if( $(this).attr("id") == "link2" ) {
                alert("id was clicked");

Then I have some javascript for the link in the head that takes care of the link:

<script language="javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {
         var thisyear = new Date().getFullYear();
       var strLink = "index2.php?mydate=" + thisyear + "-1-1";


And finally the link:

<a id="link2" rel="external"> Link Here</a>

The links DO work ... the problem is that the code on the JS file is not working...

When I click on the link it should show the alert but it's not.

Can anyone help please?
