How To Navigate To Another Page In Jquery

There are times when you need to navigate to another page using jQuery, whether it’s based on user interactions or predefined conditions. In this blog post, we’ll discuss different methods to navigate to another page using jQuery.

1. Using the window.location Object

The simplest and most common way to navigate to another page in jQuery is by using the window.location object. This object contains information about the current URL and allows you to manipulate it easily.

To navigate to another page, you can set the window.location.href property to the URL of the new page like this:

window.location.href = ‘’;

You can also use jQuery’s $(location) selector to achieve the same result:

$(location).attr(‘href’, ‘’);

2. Using the window.location.replace() Method

If you want to navigate to another page without adding the current page to the browser’s history, you can use the window.location.replace() method. This method loads a new document and replaces the current document in the browser history. This means that users won’t be able to navigate back to the previous page using the browser’s back button.

Here’s an example of using the window.location.replace() method:


3. Using jQuery’s $.ajax() Method

If you want more control over the navigation process, you can use jQuery’s $.ajax() method to load a new page’s content and then update the current page’s content with the loaded content. This method allows you to add custom transition effects and other visual enhancements when navigating to another page.

Here’s an example of how to use jQuery’s $.ajax() method to navigate to another page:

url: ‘’,
success: function(data) {

This example makes an AJAX request to fetch the content of the new page and then replaces the entire HTML of the current page with the loaded content.


In this blog post, we’ve discussed three methods to navigate to another page using jQuery. Depending on your requirements, you can choose the most suitable method for your project. Remember that while jQuery provides a convenient way to manipulate the DOM and perform AJAX requests, it’s essential to ensure that your website also works without JavaScript for accessibility reasons and better search engine optimization.
