JavaScript AJAX Basics (retiring) jQuery and AJAX Using jQuery's $.get() AJAX method

AJAX Basics

The first argument to the $.get() method is a URL to a resource. In this case you want to load the 'footer.html' file, so pass that as the argument. Bummer! You need to pass the name of the file: "footer.html". That file is in the same folder as the index.html page, so just provide the name of the file within quotes.

1 $.get('url, data, callback'); 2 ā€‹ 3 $.get("footer.html");

$.get('url, data, callback');

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>AJAX with JavaScript</title>
  <div id="main">
    <h1>AJAX with jQuery</h1>
  <div id="footer"></div>
  <script src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script src="app.js"></script>

To pass this challenge just remove your first $.get method $.get('url, data, callback');

The challenge is asking to set up the jquery get method to request the footer.html file without sending any additional data or returning the results.
