Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to ns_returnredirect FORM vars vs URL vars

Posted by Bob OConnor on

Hi James, I LIKE your #2:

"Have an interim page on your server that takes URL variables and has a few tasks.....Then, it creates a simple HTML page and creates some quick javascript that will redirect the user with the necessary POST data."

This simple HTML page:

  • Does the user see it, or does it just flash on the screen or not appear at all (Preferred)?
  • Can you give me a javascript code fragment example that does this?

Thank you.
