Hi Perko,

Are you looking to add some code to your page that automatically redirects the page to another URL? You can do this by adding the following HTML to your page:

1. Create a new page with the name of the site you want to link to.
2. Drag and drop a HTML widget onto your page.
3. Paste this tag into the HTML editor:
<!-- <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url="> -->

"2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number
"url" is the URL it redirects to, so, replace the URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.
Please ignore <!-- and --> they are there to stop the code from being interpreted in this post.

Make sure you are completely done editing the page you are putting this code into. Since there is a 2 second delay, I wanted to change the banner picture. So, I went to edit that page and the script took me to the redirect url from the synthasite editor.

here's another way to do it:

<script language="javascript">



the problem is, the script is executed by the editor, and so the editor gets redirected, so there's no way to save the page!

is there a way to prevent script from getting executed by the editor?

Hello johnywhy

Unfortunately, there is not a way to prevent the script from executing. Perhaps you may want to considered using script provided above as it does not seem to execute as fast giving you time to save it:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=;&gt;

Alternatively, perhaps you could use a timed delay script? If you're interested in this, here's the code:

<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


Replace ".../javascriptredirect.php" with your URL you want to redirect to.

I hope this helps.
