How to add a 'splash page' to our companies default.asp file

We have an announcement that we want to add before our webpage starts but we do not have a web designer to assist so I thought I would ask the e-e community.

Here is the code from our default.asp file.  I am assuming that this is the file that runs when someone gets to our site.  I would like to add a page with a bit of a delay prior to the final redirect to our official site.  Any assistance would be great!!

website names have been removed to protect the innocent!

Option Explicit
Response.Buffer = True
Dim HostURL
HostURL = Lcase(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST"))
Select Case HostURL ' Find which site to redirect to
 Case "", ""
End Select

<<<splash screen with delay here>>>

Response.Redirect(Application("ValidURL") + "/users/folder.asp")

Open in new window

Here is the most simple of all pop-ups:

add this to the <body> tag of your page:


add this to the end of your page just before the closing </html> tag:

<script type="text/javascript">
     function showAlert() {
          alert("Place your desired text here.";
I would place the splash screen on your folder.asp page since that is where the user will end up.
Do you want the splash screen to ALWAYS appear for every visit to the page, or just the first time and then maybe after a week or so, or never again?

It could be every time.

Looks very advanced to my poorly trained eye. Is there a simpler way?

That's awesome.
One last question
Is there a way to do a showalert with an image?  Or does that send me all the way to your demo CSS?
JavaScript alert() boxes support text only; not even links. If you need to style the output, add images etc, you need to make it a modal window that you show/hide using JavaScript as shown in my previous upload.
