Hi all,
I'm trying to redirect users from a specific domain to one of my
webpages.
So, in my example, anyone accessing my index.html from the
*btinternet.com domain (allowing for wildcards!) will be redirected to
"update.htm".

I'm not bothered what the referring webpage was, I'm just interested
in
anyone accessing my page from a certain domain

This is what I have:

<HTML>

  <HEAD>
<script type="text/javascript">
function redirect()
{
  previousDomain = document.referrer

  if(previousDomain.indexOf("btinternet.com") > -1)
  {
      window.location="update.htm"
  }
}
</script>

</HEAD>

....snip.....

<BODY bgcolor="FFFFFF" TEXT="000000" LINK="00FF00"
onload="redirect()">

......snip......

but it doesn't want to work.... what have I done wrong?

Best wishes

Paul
