JavaScript AJAX Basics (retiring) jQuery and AJAX Add a callback

Use jQuery's html() method to insert the server response into the footer of the page.

i can't figure this out

app.js
$.get("footer.html",function(data){
    $("#footer").html(footer.html)
});
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>AJAX with JavaScript</title>
</head>
<body>
  <div id="main">
    <h1>AJAX with jQuery</h1>
  </div>
  <div id="footer"></div>
  <script src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Could be that you possibly missing a semi colon, try that

$.get("footer.html",function(data){ $("#footer").html(footer.html); });

I tried that and still couldn't get it to work

That's so odd cause your code is correct. Need to report a bug
