Title: Page Forwarding
Post by: admin on September 09, 2010, 04:58: PM
Page Forwarding:
META for Automatic Page Forwarding

You can use <META ...> to tell the web browser to automatically move to another web page after a specified period of time..This will be very useful when you move your website to a new address. To transfer a visitor to a new URL/address, place the following line between the HEAD tags :

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="5;URL=http://www.newurl.com">

Here we gives two pieces of information: CONTENT=5 means your browser waits for 5 seconds to reload and forward to  the new URL.

Automatic Page forwarding using Javascript

You can use a Javascript function to achieve the same task (without using the META TAG given above):

 function TransferToURL(){
window.location.href="http://www.newurl.com"
}

which is called by an onLoad in the BODY tag:

<BODY onLoad="setTimeout('TransferToURL()',5000)">.
