View Full Version : It wont work in Netscape!

ok here is the problem in detail!

my webpage is located like this


and my webpage is under the htdocs/forum/portal_content.asp

now as u see above there is a default.htm file this file contains this: ( read on after code at the bottom )

<meta http-equiv="refresh"
content="0; url=http://www.xtreme-muscle.com/forum/portal_content.asp">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1&quot;;">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage Express 2.0">
<title>Please Wait Redirecting....</title>


when people go to my webpage they type in www.something.com right? then the default.htm kicks in and redirects them to the portal_content.asp file since the portal_content isnt name default so it wont start up when you type in www.something.com

but the redirect code above doesnt work with netscape! all it does is keep on refresing! works fine with IE 5x any suggestions?

cant i just take the portal content file and rename it to default.asp and put it in the place of the htm file? but then it wont stay updated cuz it updates automaticly.

Frontpage strikes again. You only need one refresh tag. Try using the following page:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://www.xtreme-muscle.com/forum/portal_content.asp">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Please Wait Redirecting....</title>
<p><a href="http://www.xtreme-muscle.com/forum/portal_content.asp">Redirecting. If the page does not change, please click here.</a></p>

Then I have no idea. That works perfectly in Moz/NS6 (I can save the page on my machine and it does exactly as it should).

Looks like you're missing a double quote mark:
