Remove Broken Images Using MooTools or jQuery
A while back I wrote a post called Send Email Notifications for Broken Images Using MooTools AJAX. Looking back on that post, I failed to address the image itself. After some thought I've decided it would be best to remove the broken image from the page all together. Below you'll find how to do so using MooTools or jQuery.
The MooTools way of removing elements from the page is Element.dispose().
The jQuery way of removing elements from the page is jQuery.remove().
Removing a broken image is a great way of preventing the user from seeing a shortcoming in your website.
When each new t-shirt means staving off laundry for yet another day, swag quickly becomes the most coveted perk at any tech company. Mozilla WebDev had pretty much everything going for it: brilliant people, interesting problems, awesome office. Everything except a t-shirt.
That had to change.
