Hi!
Can you help me with this ?  I have a page with a meta tag for refresh into another page regarding the url ID I have.  It works fine at IE, firefox, Safari but not in Google Chrome.
If your type in all other browsers :  www.justclick4.info/home.php?RecordID=1   goes to a page I have specify and if I type www.justclick4.info/home.php?RecordID=2 goes to an other page.
But in Google Chrome it doesn't.
<html><head><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://<?php echo $row_levels['link_stratol']; ?>?RecordID=<?php echo $row_levels['site_id']; ?>"></head>

Seeing as you're using php and immediately redirecting the page, why don't you just do a 301 redirect.
This article explains about writing the Location header to redirect
http://www.phpf1.com/tutorial/php-redirect.html

Have a look at this w3c article explaining why you should use server side redirects.

Thanks for the answer I know this redirect with Location Header but I how I will put t :  http://<?php echo $row_levels['link_stratol']; ?>?RecordID=<?php echo $row_levels['site_id']; ?>"> in the place of the url of the redirect ?   YOu cant write it like this. This works only inside html tags.

I dont know the right syntax.  I can do it with plain url ig. www.justclick4.info/index.php but I want to retrieve the url for my database

thank you
Penelope

Just concatenate the variables:
<?php
  header('Location:http://' . $row_levels['statol_level'] . '?RecordID=' . $row_owners['site_id']);
  die();
?>

Hi!

I have put the suggested code but as you can see yourself it doesn't work.  url:  www.justclick4.info/home.php?RecordID=1

The url in my db are like this :  www.justclick4.info/index5.php (this is the field statol_level in table levers in mysql.
I assume I have them correct as the code you send me is like this Location:http://' . $row_levels['statol_level'] . '?RecordID=' . $row_owners['site_id']);

thank you

Can you give a few examples of what the statol_level & site_id are, and what url you want them to redirect to?
I can't quite follow how you expect "www.justclick4.info/index5.php" to change to " www.justclick4.info/home.php" without any string manipulation.
