HTML Redirect

You may occasionally find yourself in the position where you have to create an "HTML redirect". This is a client-side redirection and tells the browser to request another page.

To create an HTML redirect page, you use the HTML meta tag, along with the 'http-equiv' and 'content' attributes.

Redirect code

To create an HTML redirect, place the following code between the document's head tags.

Copy to Clipboard
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5; url=http://www.quackit.com/html/tags/">

In the above example, the page will redirect to the specified page in 5 seconds (as indicated in the 'content' attribute).

You can also use JavaScript to redirect to another web page. See JavaScript Redirect.
