Load different web page from a hyperlink

P: 54
Hi!, does anybody know how to load a different Web page using a hyperlink?. Now I have my code with some "<a href>" when I click the link, it load the URL of the <a href>. My question is how can I force the navigator with JS to load a different Web page?. For example, if I click the link of google( [HTML]<a href=''>Google</a>[/HTML] ) the result of the event it will not the google Web page!!!, so the navigator displays a Web page define in my script (for example I know it could be a stupid question, because easily I can change the reference in the <a> tags, but as I said in another discussion, I'm a total beginner and I try new things with JS.

Thank you again!!!

hi ...

here's an example, that switches the href of the link when the page is loaded:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  2. function switch_href() {
  3.     var l = document.getElementById('my_link');
  4.     l.href = 'your_new_url';
  5. }
  6. </script>
  8. <body onload="switch_href();">
  9.     <a id="my_link" href="">Google</a>
  10. </body>
kind regards
