When a button is pressed the Student name is added to a favourites box

function getFavourite()
{

    name = "Student 1, " 


    $("#output").val($("#output").val() + ' ' + name);
    saveFavourites();
    loadFavourites();
}



I'm trying to get the student to be a hyperlink that links back to the student's page

This is what I've been trying but with no luck

name = '<a href=' + window.location.href + '>'  + 'Student 1, ' + '/a>'

You can try this:
JavaScript
var a = document.createElement('a');
var linkText = document.createTextNode("Text for your student");
a.appendChild(linkText);
a.title = "Text for your student";
a.href = "your url";

//you can change this to append anywhere
document.body.appendChild(a);


Here is how you can append your div with your new element:
JavaScript
function getFavourite()
{ 
   var name = document.createElement('a');
   var linkText = document.createTextNode("Student 1, ");
   name.appendChild(linkText);
   name.title = "Student 1, ";
   name.href = "your url for your student";
 
   //here you are appending your div or whatever element with a newly created 'a' element.
   $("#output").append(name);
   saveFavourites();
   loadFavourites();
}

Thanks for the responce, using the code below It displays only the url of the page but not as
a link. Do you have any ideas how I could fix it?

function getFavourite()
{

var name = document.createElement('a');
var linkText = document.createTextNode("Student 1, ");
name.appendChild(linkText);
name.title = "Student 1, ";
name.href = "";


$("#output").val($("#output").val() + ' ' + name);
saveFavourites();
loadFavourites();
}

It should work if you append a div with variable name. It is an 'a' element and if you concatenate with val(), it'll be casted as a string. That's why it is shown as a text.
I've improved my solution, you can check it, probably it'll work.
