I've tried adding the link with html in the HTML code after

  • I've also tried calling a window.location function upon clicking ...

I can't get it the link to work, it shows up as a link and if you hover it shows where the page should be relocated too but it does not work...

I'm no expert on javascript.

Any help?

    results_ul.html('<li class="as-message">'+opts.emptyText+'</li><li class="as-message"><a href=addlabels>Request New Label Be Added</a></li>');

    Thats my first try...

    I also tried to create a function that directs the window.location to a new page upon click.. no luck, anyone figure this out?

    I made emptyText like this:

    emptyText: "No Results Found (add this tag or clear text)",

    Then I created two jquery delegate functions:

    $("body").delegate("", "mousedown", function(e) {

                $(this).parent().parent().parent().siblings(".as-selections").children().each(function(idx) {
                    if ($(this).attr("class") == "as-original") {
                        $(this).children(".as-input").each(function(idx2) {
                            // add tag to db and then repopulate .....
                alert("add tag ...");
            $("body").delegate("", "mousedown", function(e) {
                var lnk = $(this);
                $(lnk).parent().parent().parent().siblings(".as-selections").children().each(function(idx) {
                    var li = $(this);
                    if ($(li).attr("class") == "as-original") {
                        $(li).children(".as-input").each(function(idx2) {

    A good place to start perhaps?
