    window.location.search question

    I have a site that I am creating pages that adapt to different screen sizes. I am using a script for the regular pages that works like this:
    <script language="Javascript"><!--
    if (screen.width < 1000) {
    document.location = "showArticle2.asp";

    Some of the pages have news stories that come from a database and typically the regular page would load something like this:

    What I want to do since the main page uses the "http://www.mysite.com/news/showarticle.asp?ArticleID=4162" is to call the alternate page as shown above but it will do me no good unless I can ArticleID 4162.

    I tried this but it does not work:
    <script language="Javascript">
    if (screen.width < 400)
    window.location.replace("showArticle2.asp" + window.location.search);}

    Does anyone has any ideas how to make it work? Thanks in advance for any help.

    You left out the ? between the page name and the search string.

    window.location.replace("showArticle2.asp?" + window.location.search

    The other thing you need to do is to change it to test the width inside the browser window instead of the screen width since someone with a screen width of 2000 may have their browser open using only say 500 of that width so as to see other things at the same time.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
