Open a new page in inline code?

Recommended Posts

It's not a case of "just thinking".  There is a decision making via the "if" statement so I don't see why there shouldn't be a facility to go to a new page based on the decision.  One should be able to do "anything" without human intervention.  However, it seems that is not possible with website programming - something I consider a deficiency.

Nonetheless, thanks for your help!

You don't need JavaScript at all. I was formerly using it for inline code but have beefed up my security settings by disallowing all forms of inline code, now I use a meta tag like this;

<!-- Replace the zero with how many seconds of delay you want before the refresh is triggered -->
<meta http-equiv='refresh' content='0;url=https://example.com' />

If you really want to use JavaScript you could use this;

// The following replaces the current URL with a new one

// Or with a time delay in microseconds (currently set at 2 seconds)
setTimeout( function() {window.open('https://example.com','_self')}, 2000);
