Redirect a webpage to another page

A redirect is a piece of code which, upon visiting one page, takes you to a different page automatically.

There are two main reasons you might want to set up a redirect:

  • To redirect a page after changing the URL (so existing links to the old URL don’t break)
  • To create an ‘easy’ link to an outside profile (like setting to redirect to your SpaceHey profile)

To implement a redirect, you need to place a snippet of code inside of your <head></head> tags:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url='/about/'" />

If the above code were put into /about.html, then when users visit that page, they will be redirected to

You can change the content="0" value to determine how long until the page redirects (in seconds). 0 indicates an immediate redirect.

The url='' value can be an absolute or relative link.
