How to go to a URL using jQuery? [duplicate]
This question already has an answer here:
How do I redirect to another webpage?
Go To URL
// some code to go to url
I don’t want to use window.location as I want to invoke this link from a popup.
//As an HTTP redirect (back button will not work ) window.location.replace("http://www.google.com"); //like if you click on a link (it will be saved in the session history, //so the back button will work as expected) window.location.href = "http://www.google.com";
why not using?
window.location is just what you need. Other thing you can do is to create anchor element and simulate click on it
$("<a href='your url'></a>").click();
Actually, you have to use the anchor # to play with this. If you reverse engineer the Gmail url system, you’ll find
Everything after # is the part your want to load in your page, then you just have to chose where to load it.
By the way, using document.location by adding a #something won’t refresh your page.
