View Full Version : Need a redirector script

09-02-2005, 07:48 PM
Hi all,

I'm looking for the DHTML script that automatically redircts the user to another URL (in a set period of time -- say 5-10 seconds or so. "If you aren't automatically transferred to ---.com, press the link below", etc.) I've seen the browser and screen resolution redirectors, and I'm guessing I could use one of those, but I was hoping to find exactly what I need.

Thanks for the advice!!

I think I found what I want. I had no idea it was done in the meta tags. Live and learn.
Thanks anyway.
(I'm leaving the thread up in case anybody is in the same boat)

For "anybody in the same boat":
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;page-to-go-to.htm"/>
where 5 is seconds to wait.

Are the search engine robots clever enough to understand from this tag that the page has been moved and will they update their index accrodingly?

I believe so, yes. Google certainly does; I can't speak for some others.
