DelayedRedirect Stack

DelayedRedirect Stack

redirects your visitor to another page after a set delay

Use this stack to redirect your visitor to another page after a set delay. A counter shows the remaining time to the moment of the delay. Very useful when you want to inform your visitors about moving to a new location for your website.

Demo
See the counter above (below the menu). To see this stack in action with different options, please start with demo #1.
You will automatically be forwarded to demo #1 in 300 seconds.

Usage

Drag one copy of this stack on your Stacks page. The text of the first and last part of the message (before and after the actual counter) can be edited inside the stack pane (fig. 1). All styling and settings are done in the stack’s HUD (fig 2).

I think it is a good idea to always show a link to the new site or page too, so visitors who have JavaScript turned off have a way to continue – and impatient visitors don't have to wait.

Need help using it on a non-stacks page? Here’s a tutorial.

Background
This stack is based on a snippet that has been around on my Mac for a really long time. I can't find it's source anymore, but if anyone knows its creator, I'll be more than happy to put the credits here.

Limitations
When the visitor has JavaScript disabled in his browser, the message will show, but the countdown and redirect will not work.

This stack requires the Stacks plugin by YourHead (version 2 or higher).
