    Automatic jump on Page Not Found

    I'm a novice at html, but would love to implement the sort of automatic jump I see that says "In a few seconds your browser will take you to "

    I recently did some searches on my name, and found several historic references to pages that no longer exist on my account at my ISP.

    As a temporary measure I have re-instated the names by making fresh copies of my home page, and renaming them, but I figure a better solution is to have a wee small page that has just the necessary code to take the user to the home page.

    I could develop twelve small pages, each with a {Home} button, but I figure that there is probably a mechanism that saves the user having to do that extra click.

    There is, and it is called the refresh META tag.
    Unfortunately, I can't give you a live demonstration ( <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> that *was* a joke) - see Submit Corner for some more info...

    Leif, thanks for this. I'll give it a try. I note the cautions not to use it ......
