how do I create an index.php page with the following redirect in it?

<META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="8;URL=http://www.mysite.com/fudforum/br/index.php">

You want the page to be reloaded every 8 seconds?

Or what exactly are you trying to do?

sorry about not being clear on what I was looking for.

I have ocasssionaly had to move a page from one folder to another. When I have have done that in the past, I just replaced the original index.htm file with an index.htm file that had the following:

<!doctype HTML public "-//w3c//dtd HTML 4.0 transitional//en">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="8;URL=http://www.mysite.com/members.html">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>
<CENTER>
<FONT SIZE="2" COLOR="1600A5" FACE=VERDANA><B>
You will automatically be redirected to the Message boards.
<BR><BR>
Or click the link if you can't wait!!!
</B></FONT> 
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/members/members.html">
<FONT SIZE="2" COLOR="1600A5" FACE=VERDANA><B>Message boards</B></FONT></a>
</CENTER>
</BODY>
</HTML>


If I move the forum, some folks will still be linked to:
http://www.mysite.com/fudforum/index.php
This index.php will load the forum. BUT since I have moved the index.php, I want to put a new index.php with the above code.

So, What would the code look like for the index.php to do the META refresh? How about the following? Would this work?

<?php
<!doctype HTML public "-//w3c//dtd HTML 4.0 transitional//en">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="8;URL=http://www.mysite.com/members.html">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>
<CENTER>
<FONT SIZE="2" COLOR="1600A5" FACE=VERDANA><B>
You will automatically be redirected to the Message boards.
<BR><BR>
Or click the link if you can't wait!!!
</B></FONT> 
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/members/members.html">
<FONT SIZE="2" COLOR="1600A5" FACE=VERDANA><B>Message boards</B></FONT></a>
</CENTER>
</BODY>
</HTML>
?>


The META refresh option as used above will wait 8 seconds after loading before loading the URL that follows.

I appreciate your help and response...I learned enough PERL to be dangerous....guess I'm just going to have to do the same with PHP....<g>

great Smile

k, what you want is a site that must be named index.php and must redirect to a certain other index.php, i guess i got that now Smile

your proposal in <?php ?> wouldn't work.
the problem is that everything between php brackets is parsed and should be php code. but you place there normal html.

the way it works is a normal html redirect page (your former solution (the above one). just name the file containing the ordonary HTML index.php and it should work.

php parses only code within <?php ?> brackets. so you can produce normal html pages without any php and name the file index.php and it should work.

why don't you just try the examples yourself? Wink

good night - andy

aha! I see...php is actually programming inside of html....if in fact that is a correct interpretation, then, strangely enough, I am familiar with that concept.

Actually, I did think of trying it out...but as you say, it would not have worked.

Now I just need to get the good folks here to help me move the board...


Thanks for your help!!!

keep in mind that you can do this with php - it is server side, but put it at the top , to modify the header it has to come up before anything is sent back to the browser - probably your best bet since <meta > isn't fullproof - and most things i've seen which talk about meta refreshes say not to use it as a permanent redirect - .htaccess files work to , because you can still have the browser show the old path - but it actually references a different document , look for mod_rewrite on google
