Show
when a specific URL Parameter is met

I have a form in Google Sheets, which passes URL parameters to a page, which then should show content based on the URL parameters.

So if a person checks “item 1” and “item 2” in the Google Sheet, the parameter gets passed on as follows:

https://my-url.com/?item1=value1&item2=value2

Now there’s several div containers, which are set to display:none with css. When the URL parameter is met, the hidden div container should show up. So the html is:

<div class="hidden" id="value1">This content should show, when the URL parameter value 1 is passed</div>
<div class="hidden" id="value2">This content should show, when the URL parameter value 2 is passed</div>

I’ve found some code online, which does pretty much that, but it can only display one div at a time: https://jennamolby.com/how-to-display-dynamic-content-on-a-page-using-url-parameters/

My problem is, that for every passed parameter, a field has to show.

Can anyone help me with this? I’m really not an expert in js by any means.

Good Luck

function getParameterByName(name, url = window.location.href) {
    name = name.replace(/[[]]/g, '\$&');
    var regex = new RegExp('[?&]' + name + '(=([^&#]*)|&|#|$)'),
        results = regex.exec(url);
    if (!results) return null;
    if (!results[2]) return '';
    return decodeURIComponent(results[2].replace(/+/g, ' '));
}

var item1 = getParameterByName('item1');
var item2 = getParameterByName('item2');

if (item1 == "value1")
{
  document.getElementById("value1").style.display = "block";
}
if (item2 == "value2")
{
  document.getElementById("value2").style.display = "block";
}
.hidden
{
  display: none;
}
<div class="hidden" id="value1">This content should show, when the URL parameter value 1 is passed</div>
<div class="hidden" id="value2">This content should show, when the URL parameter value 2 is passed</div>
