Using The getQuerystring Function


The purpose of using the getQuerystring function is to retrieve information out of the URL box. Say you have the URL http://www.whiterootmedia.com?author=joesmith. To retrieve the "author" querystring's value, you would use the following code:

var author_value = getQuerystring('author');



After running the JavaScript code, author_value will equal joesmith.
