How do you redirect to a page from another page with JavaScript?

To redirect to another page, you can use:

window.location = "http://www.yoururl.com";

You may need to explain your question a little more.

When you say "redirect", to most people that suggests changing the location of the HTML page:

window.location = url;

When you say "redirect to function" - it doesn't really make sense. You can call a function or you can redirect to another page. You can even redirect and have a function called when the new page loads.

You can't redirect to a function. What you can do is pass some flag on the URL when redirecting, then check that flag in the server side code and if raised, execute the function.

For example:

document.location = "MyPage.php?action=DoThis";

Then in your PHP code check for "action" in the query string and if equal to "DoThis" execute whatever function you need.

Compared to window.location="url"; it is much easyer to do just location="url"; I always use that

It's better than using window.location.href = 'http://sidanmor.com';

Using replace() is better because it does not keep the originating page in the session history, meaning the user won't get stuck in a never-ending back-button fiasco.

If you want to simulate someone clicking on a link, use window.location.href

If you want to simulate an HTTP redirect, use window.location.replace

For example:

// similar behavior as an HTTP redirect

// similar behavior as clicking on a link
window.location.href = "http://sidanmor.com";
