jQuery: Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression

console.log($('"#'+d+'"'));

In my HTML, I have:

<div id="2013-10-23">
    <h1>5</h1>
    <p>eeeeeeeeeeee</p>
</div>

In the above code, I have one <div> with an id of 2013-10-23, and when getting that id it is throwing this syntax error:

Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: "#2013-10-23"

Answer

try

console.log($("#"+d));

your solution is passing the double quotes as part of the string.
