How to check if the URL contains a given string

0 votes

How could I do something like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function () {
    if(window.location.contains("franky")) // This doesn't work, any suggestions?
    {
         alert("your url contains the name franky");
    }
});
</script>

Hello @kartik,

You would use indexOf like this:

if(window.location.href.indexOf("franky") != -1){....}

Also notice the addition of href for the string otherwise you would do:

if(window.location.toString().indexOf("franky") != -1){....}

Hope this works!!
