Here's another Dumbfound the dogg question: I was reading Smartmom's thread and was wondering how to do a simple redirect like you mentioned in it?
A simple redirect can be done using plain HTML, with the "Meta Refresh" tag. You have 2 basic options; just refresh your own page, or redirect the surfer to some other page or website.
It goes in the Meta area of your page, which is within the Head tags.
Here's an example of sending someone to google.com from a page on your site:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10;url=http://www.google.com" />
<title>And awaaaay we gooo!</title>
This is where the rest of your page code goes.
The number in the "Content" parameter is the amount of seconds the page will sit idle before redirecting the surfer to the page you chose. In this case 10 seconds. You usually want to give the surfer a chance to read what's going on before sending them off somewhere else, unless you don't actually want them on this page at all, and just want to send them to somewhere else instantly. For example, you registered a new domain name where your site is now at instead, you could set the Content parameter to 0, which means as soon as the surfer hits that page they will instantly be sent to your new page.
The URL parameter is where you enter the URL to where you want the surfer to go once the Content timer "dings".
If you want to simply refresh the same page, for example, you have some sort of dynamic content, you just leave out the semi-colon and URL parameter, like so:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10" />
<title>This is my page</title>
The rest of your page.

You need edit access to the page source in order to do this. I can't think of a way off the top of my head to automatically send someone to another site from a site like myspace or myyearbook.
