Hi

My company's server currently cannot use dynamic scripting languages such as PHP, ASP or JSP, etc. (for reasons I won't go into here!). Therefore my only option is javascript.

What I need to do:

Read the URL Parameter ID - example - http://www.myexample.com?ID=1)
Pass into another URL - example - http://www.myexample2.com
and redirect the page to new URL - example - http://www.myexample2.com?ID=1

Is this possible?

Thanks for your time

Hi N

This code will check for the existence of a ? in the current url.
If found it will add it to the new url and redirect there

The only problem is that on my server using your example url i get output of

http://www.myexample2.com/?id=1

I think this is because there is no page sepcified. I dont know if that is a problem but if you know the page that you are redirecting to on the site you can use

new_URL = "http://www.myexample2.com/page1.htm" + current_URL.substring(current_URL.indexOf('?'));

<script language="JavaScript">

  // Get the current url
  current_URL = document.location.href;
  // If a ? is in the url
  if (current_URL.indexOf('?') != -1) {
   // Concatenate the new url with everthing after the ?
    new_URL = "http://www.myexample2.com" + current_URL.substring(current_URL.indexOf('?'));
    // redirect tothe new url
    window.location = new_URL;
  }
 
</script>

Cheers
