Hi,

I have a line of HTML code as follows:
<a href="test.html" title="home">CLICK</a>

Open in new window


I would like to insert the following code before ">CLICK":
data-tip="Pause Video" href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="pauseBgVideo();"

Open in new window


so that the result is like this:
<a href="test.html" title="home" data-tip="Pause Video" href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="pauseBgVideo();">CLICK</a>

Open in new window



I am using jQuery. How do I achieve this?

thanks in advance

Your 'result' has two 'href's and that's an error.

Dave, the jquery attr command over writes and does not add.   Are you seeing something different?

I've tried the code and it doesn't work.
I've left it on the site for the moment.
I am trying to see if I can find a workaround too.

thanks
