    It may be a small matter but how do you make a webpage redirect after a certain amount of time.

    I'm using publisher to create my webpage as i find it the most easiest application on my computer to use for the job.
    My websites at www.dantulloch.com but is not up and running yet! I'm trying to publish to the web a make contact page where people can send comments and stuff to me via a form on the web. I've done the form and I directed the results of the form to me in the form of mail but how do I redirect the thank you page to my homepage after a certain amount of time?

    Tricky one!!
    And I can't use frontpage because my ISP doesn't allow frontpage extensions.

    Help :confused:

    This goes in <HEAD>

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content= "50; URL=page.html">

    "50" is the delay time in tenths of a second (I think)

    (META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" delay=10 CONTENT="10;URL=http://www.wheretogo.com")

    replace "(" and ")" with "<" and ">"
    delay is the number of seconds before the page redirects
    i have no idea what content does LOL but it's part of the same set of quotes so i set it to the same as the delay

    delay is what starts the clock ticking

    just replace the url= with the address you want the redirect to go to
