My page is a grid of products with several images.  The images each of unique id's that share a common prefix "thumb_".  I need to find each image based on each image whose id contains "thumb_" and replace the src from "_md" to "_lg".

Example:
<img id="thumb_1234_abc" src="http://www.mystore.com/images/product/1234_abc_md.jpg" >
<img id="thumb_5678_abc" src="http://www.mystore.com/images/product/5678_abc_md.jpg" >

Updated to:
<img id="thumb_1234_abc" src="http://www.mystore.com/images/product/1234_abc_lg.jpg" >
<img id="thumb_5678_abc" src="http://www.mystore.com/images/product/5678_abc_lg.jpg" >

you can try something like this using jquery:

var source = '';
$('input[id*="thumb_"]').each() {
     source = $(this).attr("src").replace(("md", "lg" );
    $(this).attr("src", source);
});

Open in new window

Might I recomend changing the above replace from "md", "lg" to "md.jpg", "lg.jpg". It seems like you are really trying to change the end of the url. This way you can avoid messing up and image that has the letters md anywhere else in the url.
