Hej,

I would like to redirect from a page to another. I tried to use the html tag
<META HTTP-EQUIV='REFRESH' CONTENT='3; URL=newpage.html'>
but it does not work.

Is there a way to do a redirect in PHP?

Thanks
Stephane

Hi

You can redirect with php using the header() function.

Your code should look as this:
header("Location: http://www.php.net");  /* Redirect browser to PHP web site */
exit;  /* Make sure that code below does not get executed when we redirect. */

Greetings

I think my comment answers your question
<META HTTP-EQUIV='REFRESH' CONTENT='3; URL=newpage.html'> ... :))

Be careful, before the header function, you musn't stdout something otherwise it won't work.

Thanks for all your comments.

The only thing new that I got from you guys, is from "chkassen", who tipped me first about the function "header()". Unfortunately, I cannot use this function in my application, because I want to output some warning message for a few seconds before doing the redirection.

The html tag I was using didn't work, because there was a <style> tag and a <div> tag on the same page for a layer. It seems that when there is a layer on a page, the <meta http-equiv> tag cannot be used. One more html bug?

So I removed my layer, and now I can do the redirection using my <meta http-equiv> tag.

But anyway here are the points.

Thanks
