Hi @actualseomedia123,

You’ll need to use the attr() method. The attr() method sets or returns attributes and values of the selected elements.

When this method is used to return the attribute value, it returns the value of the FIRST matched element.

When this method is used to set attribute values, it sets one or more attribute/value pairs for the set of matched elements. Syntax:

Return the value of an attribute:


Set the attribute and value:


Set attribute and value using a function:


Set multiple attributes and values:

$(selector).attr({attribute:value, attribute:value,...})
