JavaScript Redirect

JavaScript Location Redirect:

When you click a URL to reach to a page X but internally you are directed to another page Y that simply happens because of page re-direction.

Example 1 (Web Page Redirection):

This is very simple to do a page redirect using JavaScript at client side. To redirect your site visitors to a new page, you just need to add a line in your head section as follows:

<script type="text/javascript">

JavaScript Time Delay Redirect :

You can show an appropriate message to your site visitors before redirecting them to a new page. This would need a bit time delay to load a new page. Following is the simple example to implement the same:


<script type="text/javascript">
function delayer(){
    window.location = "../javascriptredirect.php"
<body onLoad="setTimeout('delayer()', 5000)">
<h2>Prepare to be redirected!</h2>
<p>This page is a time delay redirect, please update your bookmarks to our new 



The most important part of getting the delay to work is being sure to use the JavaScript function setTimeout. We want the delayer() function to be used after 5 seconds or 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds), so we pass the setTimeout() two arguments.

  • ‘delayer()’ – The function we want setTimeout() to execute after the specified delay.
  • 5000 – the number of millisecods we want setTimeout() to wait before executing our function. 1000 miliseconds = 1 second.
