Redirect to catalog/index.php ? How?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I have read some posting regarding on how we have to relocate our catalog/index.php to the root, so when customers type in www.mydomain.com, the catalog/index.php will displays.

 

 

But, my question today is, how I can redirect the page if customers come to my site, without me moving all the catalog's file to the root of the server?

 

 

For instant, I type in www.mydomain.com, the page will direct me to www.mydomain.com/catalog/index.php how could I do this?

Hi There, This is an easy fix. Simply place this code on your index or home page in the root directory.

 

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/catalog/index.php">

 

You can delay the redirect by placing a number where the "0" is.

I would like to comment on this if you dont mind, I would suggest creating an html page with a simple background color that simply states "You are being redirected to our webstore" "If your not redirected in 5 seconds please click refresh"

 

Then change your coding from 0 to 5 second delay.

 

Now why ask I suggest this, because so many dirty sites out there redirect you to other pages, customers who get redirected without notice may think your directing to a phony site, or unsecure site. The courtesy of telling them they are being directed acknowledes the fact that the redirect was intentionally done.
