Thread: Redirect

    Redirect

    One of my clients has changed their domain name. I want to add an 'index'
    page to their old site that will 'redirect' the user to the new site. I
    remember doing this before but I've lost the 'code' to do it.

    Do you have a sample 'page' that shows how to do the 'redirect'?

    Thanks and Cheers,
    Larry Rebich

    Re: Redirect

    Found the answer:

    <head>
    ....
    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0;URL=http://www.gohere.com">
    ....
    </head>

    content=numberofsecondstowait

    Cheers,

    Re: Redirect

    In between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> lines, put something like:

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="10; url=http://www.newsite.com/">

    This will redirect the user to the url specified in 10 seconds.

    In the body of the page, put something along the lines of:

    The new address is:<BR>
    <A HREF="http://www.newsite.com/">http://www.newsite.com/</A>
    <BR><BR>
    (Your browser should automatically take you there. If it doesn't, click on
    the new address above.)
    <BR><BR>
    Don't forget to update your bookmarks!

    Re: Redirect


    You need to place a meta refresh tag in the head of the index page:

    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0;URL=http://www.server.com/newpage.html">

    If you want to have a longer delay (to display a message or something) then
    change content=0 to content=5 or something (in seconds).
