I have moved an important page, or even my site and I need to leave a fowarding page behind. Can I also make the browser jump automatically to the new location?


In the example below, you will see an example of such a page. Please note that in this example, the source does not match exactly what is contained in this page. The reason is that you would obviously get bounced to another page. ;-)

The trick is using the following tag placed just right on your page, and giving instructions as to what the reader should do if their browser does not understand the tag below.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=http://www.newlocation.com/page.html">


example

We have moved! The new URL for this page is

http://www.newlocation.com/page.html

"...Please wait a moment to be transferred to the new site..."

If you have waited more than a few seconds and you are still seeing this message, please click on the new URL mentioned above!

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0;
