TIL: Redirect with tags.

February 22, 2016

I had never seen this before tonight, and didn’t even know it was possible, but apparently you can tell the browser to redirect using the <meta> tag with http-equiv=”refresh”, setting a timer via the content attribute, and a URL. ┬áLike so:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; url=http://example.com/">

See the wikipedia page for more information.
