    since the url doesn’t change i can’t conditionally hide the element with, for example:

    // hide header if url contains "#dest"
        if (window.location.href.indexOf("#dest") != -1) {

    …which works nicely on all other pages.

    any ideas of another condition that could be met to pull it off? perhaps something with php instead? can i set something in .htaccess so the /404.php would show in the url instead of keeping the erroneous url the user accidentially typed? if so, i could easily target that condition.


    ok. got it.

    on the 404-page i put:

    <script>var pagenotfound = true;</script>

    and in my js-file i put:

    if (pagenotfound==true) { $('header').hide();  }



    hmm… but since i’m using php includes the body-element of the document is in the included header and is not unique to the 404 page…

    how can i work around that?
