§ Handling url get string with javascript

Using javascript to handle url get string variables

This will find the value of a get variable and return it.  If it is not found it returns false.


function getGetValue(getName) {
  var getString = window.location.search.substring(1);
  var getArray = getString.split("&");
  var getNameValue;
  for(var i=0;i<getArray.length;i++) {
    getNameValue = getArray[i].split("=");
      return getNameValue[1];
  return false;
