javascript question

edited April 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I was wondering if someone can help me with an easy javascript question. A simple if/then statement, that checks the URL of a page and if a certain term exists, i would like to call a function.... for example: if document.domain == "abc" then call a function.... i know, it's easy......and i know, this is probably the wrong forum... but this place seems to have it together.... a very cool crew that knows their stuff.... take care....


  • Options
    if you only want to search the domain name part (
    var h =;

    if you want to search the whole URI (
    var h = window.location.href;

    if you only want to search the path (/etc/etc?etc#etc):
    var h = window.location.pathname;

    and then after whichever one of those you use, add:
    if(h.indexOf("myString") > -1) { // string found } else // string not found }
