DotNetNuke Text\HTML Javascript Redirect

Posted on 2010-08-31

Hello,
I am sure this is a very stupid question, but I am rather new to web coding.
I am trying to make a simple little form in DotNetNuke with a Text\HTML module that will allow me to have a couple text entry boxes, and append those as querystring variables to a javascript redirect button. When I try do this with window.location.replace('URL') in my onclick, it just refreshes back to the same page (not the page I want to redirect to). when I use window.open('url') that works, but it goes to a new window.
What am I doing wrong?

Neither work, also alert("Hello World!"); does work. I am starting to think there is something in the CMS stopping this code.
also thatyu888888, I thought windows.location causes a loop when people use the back button.

okay, new news... window.location.redirect works in IE, but not Chrome or FireFox. So kinda good, but obviuosly I would want it to work in all browsers.

that indeed does the trick talktohand. adding the window before location.href seems to be working.
