redirecting page

I'm having a problem using the 'URL Redirects'.

For some reason I simply can't get it to work. I don't know if I'm doing something really stupid or if it's actually not do-able.

Upon entrance to the site through the home page, I'd like my visitors to be redirected to a specific page (temporarily).

How can I make this happen?

Thanks!

Hey Rony,

You can't pull this off with the redirects in my experience. You can't redirect from a page that exists, only from pages that will yield a 404, I believe. Obviously this would never be the case on the index page.

Hi Jamie,

thanks for your quick response!

I thought that would be the case also, until I saw in the admin area, in the 'navigation' tab and to the right, an option to set up a "URL redirection".

I got the impression that it can be for any page besides the one shopify outlines as no-no's (no mention anywhere of 404 pages) but I might be misunderstanding. It is almost 2 am here after all...

How about:

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
window.location = "http://www.someothersite.com/"
//-->
</script>
