Hi can some say why  the href with the space in doesn't do anything after the alert box show "My%20Word"
Did a var_dump of $_GET and nothing
Also nothing in the network tab of dev tools

$(document).on("click", "a", function(evt) {
     evt.preventDefault() ;
     var ID = "Wrap_" + $(this).attr('id');
     var link = encodeURI($(this).attr('href'));
     alert(link);
     $('#'+ ID).load(link);
});

<a href="myfile.php?param=My Word">My Word</a>
<a href="myfile.php?param=My word">MyWord</a>
