I have tried loads of redirect scripts, all of whihc have been suggested by yola staff, and have worked on my site (therecipebook.yolasite.com, see the "forum" page), but, as you will probably find out if you visit the "conversion" page, the redirect doesnt work.
I havent changed tyhe text on the page, so wait at least 10 seconds, but when i try it, it doesnt work ,both in the editor and on the web.

these are the script i have used:

and a few others which i cannot find at the mo, anyways, is it just a case of, sign out, sign in, (which i have tried) or is it something more?

Hey Will,

I tried to visit your site but it's password protected and I can't see anything.

I see you tried to wrap the redirect around in the no-read tags but you missed one. Use the <!-- in beginning and --> at the end.

Hey Will,

Could you post the redirect script? Also to turn off protection:

Go to site manager
Go down to the bottom and look for "Site Password Protection"
Uncheck the page you want unprotected.

<!--

Here is probably the most popular one:

<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="10;url=http://mysite.com">

Where the number "10" is, just change the amount of time till redirect. It is in seconds. Then change the url to that of where you want to redirect to.
