View Full Version : PHP Redirect

06-13-2006, 06:45 AM
I posted this in the javascript section, but no luck there. Maybe PHP is the way to go?

I have a situation. I am designing a site for a realtor. He wants it fairly well integrated with his corporate site. On the corporate site, if you go to his page, then go anywhere else on the site, he is the listing agent you see for anything. This is good.

That being said, he wants to incorporate certain features like a Property tracker page, and Listings page from his corporate site into his regular site. To still have him be the listing agent, he would first have to have the user go to his page, then the appropriate page, be it listings or tracking or whatever.

I am not sure how to do this. I know how to do redirects on pages I can access, but not on pages I cannot change or modify. Perhaps Javascript can help?

Basically, click on a link, go to one page, for a split second, and then go to the actual link. That's what I am trying to do.

Can't be done. You cannot change the way a web page works unless you modify the page.

you could use frames

I'm really not incredibly profcient with either PHP or javascript, but I suppose the basic idea is this.

Have one link that when clicked on, loads the initial page in an invisible frame on my page, and once that page loads, opens up another page in a new window. Now, I KNOW there must be a way for javascript to do that.

try using following, this will reload new page after 10 seconds.

<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="10; URL=http://other.page.url/">

That actually wasn't the best way to go for my situation. Silly me, making things harder than they had to be. I didn't end up needing either PHP or Javascript. I just had an iframe set at 1px height, and visibility hidden on the home page, and when anyone goes to his corporate site through any of the links on this site, he's right there with them. Yay for simple html.
