Post by TerryAhn on October 8th 2011, 9:27 am

Hi I'm admin of www.lolaustralia.com

I would like to redirect my visitors to a new website that I created, which is not hosted by forumotion. Can anyone please teach me how to do this?

Hello TerryAhn

Find somewhere in your forum and try this:

<iframe src="http://www.lolaustralia.com.au" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Good luck.

Liz.

Update:
You can use "HTML pages management" and place banner links to both sites.


On you lolaustralia.com page your "home" button redirects you back to lolaustralia.com why not change to "lolaustralia.com.au"Wink

Update:

Never give anyone access into your admin panal, I'll edit and update here if I sort something out.


Your banner at lolaustralia.com is linked to forum can you change the link to lolaustralia.com.au

I went to the display, headers navigation section and try to change the redirection buttons of my nav bar buttons but its g reyed out and won't let me change it.

IS there any other way I can redirect? I will even give anyone admin access to do it because I have no clueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Sad

Hello TerryAhn

Is here anything in your: Administration Panel > Display > Homepage/Generalities (Homepage message) html box?

If your answer is "no" I'll made a banner and link to match your site for you to try, I'll post the code here when completed.

Liz

Update:

Try this:

<a href="http://www.lolaustralia.com.au"target="_blank"> <img src="http://imgcash3.imageshack.us/img26/60/admintz.th.jpg" width="200" height="200"
></a>


You might spot the logo so find your link to the image and change http://imgcash3.imageshack.us/img26/60/admintz.th.jpg you can pick what ever image that suits your needs.

Update:

Yes! you got it working ok.
:wouhou:

Meta refresh tags have some drawbacks:

Something to mull over

If a page redirects too quickly (less than 2-3 seconds), using the "Back" button on the next page may cause some browsers to move back to the redirecting page, whereupon the redirect will occur again. This is bad for usability, as this may cause a reader to be "stuck" on the last website.
A reader may or may not want to be redirected to a different page, which can lead to user dissatisfaction or raise concerns about security.


Much better. :wouhou:

Yay I fixed it myself, thank you True Blue for the help. But I figured out a way to redirect the website.

I created a HTML page and made it as the homepage, and posted this one it

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Your Page Title</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.lolaustralia.com.au"></HEAD>
<BODY>
We have moved to a new site.
</BODY>
</HTML>

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
