HTML: Auto Refresh, Auto Redirect

By Xah Lee. Date:


If you want visitor's broswer to automatically refresh periodically, put the following code in the HTML's <head> tag:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10">

The “10” means very 10 seconds.


To redirect to another page, use this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=">

Note: these are technology from 1990s. Google recommend not to use meta redirect.
