I am trying to use php to load a new webpage automatically
In simple terms I have index files containing a details about web page and use a 'For' loop to load up that info into a table which displays to give the user choices to click on.
If there is only 1 page detailed the table becomes irrelevant so I just I want to go straight to that page without the user having to click on it. No need to show a listing page for 1 item.
read index file
process first dataset
if only 1 dataset in file then got to page detailed in dataset
continue with processing datasets and display details
The logic of it I can handle, its the added function to go automaiticaly to another page (replacinbg existing one) that I can't find.
Obviously it can be done with a Metatag redirect in the header but I need to do it in the body of the page, with PHP
I'm sure It's straight forward and I'm missing something.
Any ideas anybody?
not sure if this will work though.
So far it hasn't. However I'm in in Spain at the moment - trying to test it on my little web book and writing code from memory, (in a bar).
I'll try a bit more thoroughly when I get home
Just in case anybody is the slightest bit interested - which is probably unlikely however:
I was told meta tags do not need to go in the header - news to me.
Therefore a simple PHP solution switch to a new page is
echo "<meta http-equiv='refresh' content='0;url=/TargetPage.php'>; ?>
The 0 is a delay of 0 seconds
