Hi there

Can somene please look at this site, http://www.cyclingotago.co.nz/and explain/suggest why its not switching over to the home.html page after 5 seconds.

Briefly, Ive renamed the index.html page to home.html, added a new index page, coded it so it stays up for 5 seconds, before switching over to the home.html page.

But I cant get it to work.

All pages lie flat in the folder without reverting to subfolders on the website.

Thanks............John in Mosgiel

Hello John

If I understand your question correctly

Your problem is here, you have: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;url=/home">

You should have:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;url=/home.html">

Hope this helps :)

Thanks roddy boy & stu161204.

Its worked. Im SURE I tried that variation last night as well, maybe I got into a panic when it wouldnt work. I'd been awake since 5am that morning so may have been a little too tired to notice.

Thanks again.......John.
