Javascript Query String Manipulation Functions

Javascript Query String Manipulation Functions

The following is a series of articles with Javascript functions that can be used to manipulate the query string parameters and variables in the current url.  Use the links below to go to a specific function:

Javascript Add Query String Parameter
Add a query string parameter to the url of the current page.

Javascript Check if Query String Parameter Exists in current URL
Test if the query string of the current URL contains a specific parameter.

Javascript Remove a parameter from the query string if found in current url
Remove a parameter from the query string of the current page.

Javascript Get the value of the specified Query String Parameter
Find the value of a specific query string parameter in the current URL.  Return the value of the parameter, or false if not found.

Javascript Get all parameters and values as an Array
Returns a multidimensional array containing parameters and values from the query string of the current page.

Javascript Return the url of the current page with no query string parameters (strip params)
Removes all parameters from the query string of the current URL.

Javascript Add query string parameter dynamically to some or all links on the current page
Update all links on the current page to include a specific query string parameter and value.

Javascript Add query string parameter dynamically to some or all links on the current page

This Javascript function retrieves all <a> tags (hyperlinks) from the current page, and updates each link to include the supplied query string parameter and value.
The third (optional) parameter passed to the function is an array of strings containing the domains that should be included when updating links on the page.
If a link points to a domain that is not in the array passed to the function, the link will remain unchanged.

If no Array of domains to include is supplied when calling the function, only the current domain is used.  For each link on the current page that the function loops through, the query string parameter is added to the link if the host matches one of the hosts in the array of domains.
