Automatic Sequence of Two Windows or Pop-Up Then Default to Specific Page within the Website
Posted on 2006-05-15
Desired action: Visitor types in a website address which includes a subfile name (i.e. xxx.com/abc). Two windows open - a pop-up or redirect on top and an internal page (abc) in the background or next in an automatic sequence. The pop-up runs its course and quits. The visitor closes that window, and the abc window displays.
This is being done on a website from Yahoo using the Geocities interface. That should tell you what server application is being used. I do know it is NOT one that can use a .asp file; therefore, I assume it is either I I S or Apache.
Please provide me with the code that is required to achieve the desired sequence with these other applications. Geocities offers a PHP editor and a Perl editor along with HTML, if that helps.
It does not matter to me it this is done using pop-up or just a sequence in the same window - in fact, the latter is probably preferable because then it would not be defeated by pop-up blockers, and my potential viewers/visitors would not have to disable their blockers.
