JavaScript 101 - Part 1

This is an article discussion thread for discussing the SitePoint article, “JavaScript 101 - Part 1

There are syntax error and spelling mistakes in this article. Also the link that opens up the examples does not work and it isn’t due to the pop up blocker

I’m getting errors too, check out the links here:



this example needs an opening ( before the Welcome…

function welcome(name) {
var greeting = "Welcome to my Web site, " + name + “!”);


This article is still useful, for instructing a javascript beginner,
because it deals with the beginnings. And there will be new
beginners for a long time to come.

Its usefulness is impaired by its failure to link to Part 2; the link
seems different in kind from the address of (or link to) Part 1.

The breaking of the link, I think, is newish, not 69 months old.
