Is there a code that I can insert in my project that automatically sends an idle page (say after 2 minutes) back to the Home page? Any help appreciated.
How do you define idle?
I’m designing a website that will ultimately become a touch-screen for patrons using the kiosk/touchscreen at our business. If a patron uses it and leaves the page that they are looking at for a length of time, and not clicking on HOME, I’d like the site to revert back to the HOME page after a certain amount of time – say 2 minutes or so. Just wondering if there is any sort of code that I can place in my project to make this happen? Hope I’ve explained this correctly. Thanks, Eddie
Hey i googled this :
timed back to homepage code
I found this:
then you need to paste this in the head of your page:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3;url=http://www.google.com/" />
The meta refresh tag does NOT wait for idle usage. It just redirects after the set number of seconds after page load.
That’s no better than a meta refresh tag. The timeout/idle period is not reset when the user interacts with the page (touches the screen or moves the mouse).
I have described a much better solution here: Redirect user after 60 seconds of idling/inactivity?
Thanks samliew – I have taken your advice on board.
Exactly what I was looking for!
Thank you very much for your help.
ow i totaly skipped the idle part of the question sorry
But im for sure gonna use your idle script when i need it Sam
Hi everyone, I’m having issues here.
whenever I use the window.location.href to redirect a user to a specific page, it reloads repeatedly??
