How to get an element by its href in jquery?
Yes, you can use jQuery’s attribute selector for that.
var linksToGoogle = $('a[href="http://google.com"]');
Alternatively, if your interest is rather links starting with a certain URL, use the attribute-starts-with selector:
var allLinksToGoogle = $('a[href^="http://google.com"]');
If you want to get any element that has part of a URL in their href attribute you could use:
$( 'a[href*="google.com"]' );
This will select all elements with a href that contains google.com, for example:
As stated by @BalusC in the comments below, it will also match elements that have
google.com at any position in the href, like
var myElement = $("a[href='http://www.stackoverflow.com']");
