Firefox blocks HTML refresh command.
« on: October 11, 2017, 01:32:33 PM »
Here is a short version of the HEAD in my HTML code.
Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;
<meta http-equiv="refresh"  content="8;url=./wp">
Notice the second item is a refresh that will allow 8 seconds. It does not go to another site, it is a relative jump to another directory where PHP  takes over.

Firefox blocks the link, Chrome does not.
What should I do? Give up?
My intent was to take the user to my WordPress blog after a shot view of my front page. Here is a screenshot of the first page.

As you see, Firefox will not allow the jump unless the user allows it.
I recall this used to work fine. Why has it changed?
What can I do?
Any Ideas?
