I'm using the shopping cart system Volusion, which doesn't allow me have different templates for each page or does it allow php or asap so i have to use JS. My problem is I don't wish to have a sidebar on the home page. So with javascript I'm trying to say only if $var is == to homepage dont display sidebar.

My javascript is currently not at a high level, and after search the internet I can up with this script. which doesn't seem to show the heading3 but shows the text working. why is this.

is javascript the best way and easiest way i can do this?; can this be written better? or use jquery for a more modern way?

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var myPage = homepage;

if(myPage == homepage){
	var sidebar=" ";
}else{	
	var sidebar="";
		sidebar += "<h3 id='Menu2_Title'></h3>";
		sidebar += "working";
}
//-->
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">document.write(sidebar);</script>

thanks for everyone who looks and helps me.
