FrontPage 98 Tips

Simple Redirection

By using <META refresh>, you can automatically redirect a user's browser to your new Web location. In FrontPage, it's easy. Just open your home page in the FrontPage Editor, right-click the page, and select Page Properties from the pop-up menu. Click the Custom Tab and then the Add button located to the right of the System Variables section. For this example, type refresh for the Name. Then enter the following for the Value: 5; URL= For your own use, change the 5 to the number of seconds you want the browser to wait until it refreshes, and change the URL to your new location. When a visitor arrives at your old home page, their browser will wait for the specified number of seconds and then automatically redirect them to the new URL.
