How can I make a redirect page using jQuery?


How can I redirect the user from one page to another using jQuery?



jQuery is not necessary, and window.location.replace(...) will best simulate an HTTP redirect.

It is better than using window.location.href =, because replace() does not put the originating page in the session history, meaning the user won't get stuck in a never-ending back-button fiasco. If you want to simulate someone clicking on a link, use location.href. If you want to simulate an HTTP redirect, use location.replace.

For example:

// similar behavior as an HTTP redirect

// similar behavior as clicking on a link
window.location.href = "http://stackoverflow.com";
