    I'm not aware of being able to do it in php. Try echoing a javascript delayed redirect, that will work as its client side. Unless anyone knows if this can be done in php???

    You can do it one of the following ways
    • Use a javascript delay as mentioned above
    • Use a meta refresh
    • Use sleep(3); to delay the execution for 3 seconds

    header('Refresh:3 ; URL=index.php');
    PHP:
    this delay for 3 seconds..
    you can print something like:

    
    print 'Redirecting...';
    header('Refresh:3 ; URL=index.php');
    
    PHP:
    cheers

    I find the meta much better than the header method, although essentially the same

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3;url=http://www.example.com/yourpage.php" />
    HTML:
    which will refresh after 3 seconds. This is for those pages like the one where you log in to this forum, and it says thankyou for logging in
