OnClick button fuctions

I'm trying to create a standard button on my webpage, www.kingkarlssen.net, a button that links to another page. An Href isn't working. I could use a navigation bar, but thats my last resort. I need to tell it when some one clicks it ( onclick="..." ) to go to another page. I also tried to hotbox it but that only works with images. Maybe I need to put in some kind of return value option?

Although I'm not sure why it is designed this way, I think you need to set the location property itself to the url string. You are setting location.href. I understand that the href contains the string, but the way to make the page change is to set the location itself to the url string. ALSO, you could use the button tag rather than the input tag with the button attribute. I would do this because, in this case, you don't really have a form element which is what the input tag is, but this is all personal preference.

Okay, that looks like it'll work, I wasn't sure how to make a function in javascript go to another page. what I was using was this

<html><head><title>Home Page</title><body><form><a href="http://www.kingkarlssen.net"><input type="button", value="King Karlssen HomePage"></a></form></body></html>

even easier:

<html><head><title>Home Page</title><body><form><input type="button" value="King Karlssen HomePage" onclick="document.location='http://www.kingkarlssen.net';"><br></form></body></html>
