add click event to multiple link items and load the link content into a target div ajax

this will get a group of links with existing href targets and load them dynamically with an ajax callback

you will need to also include the full jquery script as the slim one does not include the ajax load functionality. 

also this will only work on request from the same domain, so you cant just add a bunch of external links and load them into your page this way

if you add an external link it will give you an error about not allowed xcss something or other. 

Like this: 


<h2>The list of dynamic content links...</h2>
<div class='a-div'>
<div class="list-group">

function load_ajax(div_or_class, page_url) {
