Can I modify this to see if the location href contains a substring or not?

if ($(location).attr("href")        *=         "some substring") $("#some_div").show();

Perfect.

notes for myself on this solution:

if ($(location).attr("href").indexOf("Book") != -1)
        {
            $('#catalog_name').hide();
        }

Open in new window

More notes:

It seems this is better:


 var loc = window.location.href;
        if (loc.indexOf("Book") != -1)
        {
            $('#catalog_name').hide();
        }
