View Full Version : how can i redirect to my own error page, if link is broken

I have a problem i hope someone can help me solve.

Instead of the usual server responses if a page or a file is not available any more i want to make a script that checks a link and returns my own error page if the link is broken.

At the moment i could use it for a cdrom menu that works as a simple file browser wich contain links to more than one CD.
so if the links not available the user should be directed to insert another CD

Thanks in advance

I don't know if you can do it in JavaScript but I do know that you can do it in Perl.
Try out http://www.shavenferret.com/ if your want to try it.

Good luck, gaffer:thumbsup:

Well I beleive every web server has some method for handling server errors (404 Not Found and the like) in apache, you can do this with .htaccess.
