I arrived in Zagreb on 31 Dec 2017. Josip had messaged me much earlier on Couchsurfing while I was still in Vienna, but could only show me his place at the end of the week.

Building a full ecommerce site part 6: send customers to Oscar's thank-you page after payment

After yesterday's frustrating process, I took a long hike up Šehitluci to chill out. When I came back down this cool conservationist dude about to cycle across Europe taught me how to identify edible herbs in a garden gone wild and I ate them. Then, I googled "javascript how to click element after event". A few googles later, I'd cobbled together the right code. I am so relieved this turned out easy.
