I want to disable the hyperlink for a specific class part of Site Feeds in SharePoint 2013.

I`m using Jquery to do the same, but it is not working for me. Code for reference

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

 var location= $('.ms-microfeed-userName ms-textLarge ms-subtleLink').attr("href");
 $(".ms-microfeed-userName ms-textLarge ms-subtleLink").removeAttr('href');
 $(".ms-microfeed-userName ms-textLarge ms-subtleLink").attr("href", location);

  • The code seems to not at all remove a hyperlink, you should really just need the second jQuery line, but with my alterations from the answer below Jul 19, 2016 at 7:27

There is a mistake when you're selecting the elements using multiple classes. It should be like this

$('.ms-microfeed-userName, .ms-textLarge, .ms-subtleLink').attr("href"); 

Instead of $('.ms-microfeed-userName ms-textLarge ms-subtleLink').attr("href"); 

  • That's also wrong, it should be $('.ms-microfeed-userName.ms-textLarge.ms-subtleLink') since the ancor tag has al three classes on it Jul 19, 2016 at 6:27
  • @Robert, I tried with both options: code 1: <script src="ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.3/…> <script type="text/javascript"> $('.ms-microfeed-userName.ms-textLarge.ms-subtleLink').click(function () {return false;}); </script> Code 2: <script src="ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.3/…> <script type="text/javascript"> $('.ms-microfeed-userName.ms-textLarge.ms-subtleLink').attr("href"); </script> Still the same

  • @robert howz that supposed to work, how will jquery understand if the classes are not separated.. Jason did you try my solution Jul 19, 2016 at 6:54
  • @ThatThatGuy are you serious? The element in question is ONE a-tag with three classes on it, so the pattern I gave is how you select it in CSS and hence in jQUery selector Jul 19, 2016 at 6:55
  • @jason do check if you're able to select the elements with multiple classes Jul 19, 2016 at 6:55
