How to hide or fix a broken image using jquery

We commonly face a problem with broken images on websites. Our browsers will show a broken image when the link to an image doesn't work or when there is no image. Mostly this problem is faced when you make dynamic websites in which you work on putting a default image for posts. When a user/visitor come across your site having a broken image then he/she may lose interest on your website. So we need to put a small JQuery code so that the broken image disappears. In today's tutorial I want to show you the code for hiding the broken images.

 $(document).ready(function()) says the function to execute when the page loads.

$("img") finds the img tag.

error(function()) checks if the img tag has any error and executes the function to hide the broken image using $(this).hide();

Here this refers to the current one i.e., the img tag.
