I am trying to get into jquery/ajax and I can't even believe I can't get past this first test. I'm following an example I found at The Jquery API site and I followed it just about to a T.
I created a local folder on the desktop, and added 2 files.
<html> <head> <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script> </head> <body> <div id="stage"> </div> <script> $( "#stage" ).load( "list1.html" ); </script> </body> </html>
<div id="list"> <li>Test</li> <li>Foo</li> <li>Bar</li> </div>
I was trying for like 15 minutes to run index.html in chrome and nothing displayed (like the jquery wasn't loading correctly). Out of pure curiosity I opened it with firefox and it displayed as expected.. something like this
So is this a browser issue? Why does Chrome and IE not show this loaded list, but firefox does? I can't figure out if it's my code or the environment which is infuriating when trying to learn.
