Linked up

Linked up is a simple jQuery plugin that allows a container element to act as an extension of a link within. In other words, clicking the “linked up” element will follow the first link found inside.


Place the following code in the <head>
of your XHTML document.

Note: For best performance, it is recommended that you combine all JavaScript files
below into a single minified file.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.3.1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.linked-up.js"></script>

The following markup should then be used in your <body>content

	<a href="test">A link</a>
	Clicking this paragraph will follow the link above.

Combined with this script (after the markup has loaded):


This will result in a clickable, linked up p element.

Device independence (accessibility) is maintained, because the link itself is still a part of the tab order for the page and can be activated as usual in a device independent way.

Working example

A complete demonstration of the Linked up plugin is available.
