How To Navigate To Url In Jquery

In this blog post, we will discuss how to navigate to a URL using jQuery. jQuery is a popular JavaScript library that simplifies the process of traversing and manipulating the HTML DOM tree. It also makes it easier to create animations, handle events, and perform AJAX operations.

Basic Navigation in jQuery

To navigate to a specific URL in jQuery, you can use the window.location.href property. This property allows you to get the current URL, as well as set a new URL for the browser to navigate to.

For example, if you wanted to navigate to the Google homepage, you could use the following line of code:

window.location.href = ‘’;

Navigating with a Button

You can also use jQuery to navigate to a URL when a user clicks a button. To do this, first, create a button element in your HTML:

<button id=”navigateButton”>Click me to navigate</button>

Next, use the jQuery .click() method to attach a click event handler to the button. Inside the event handler, use the window.location.href property to navigate to the desired URL.

$(document).ready(function () {
$(‘#navigateButton’).click(function () {
window.location.href = ‘’;


In this blog post, we learned how to use jQuery to navigate to a specific URL. Whether you need to navigate to a new page when the user clicks a button or change the URL based on user actions, jQuery simplifies the process and allows you to quickly implement this functionality in your web applications.
