How can I redirect the user from one page to another using jQuery?
jQuery is not necessary, and
window.location.replace(...) will best simulate an HTTP redirect.
It is better than using
window.location.href =, because
replace() 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
location.href. If you want to simulate an HTTP redirect, use
// similar behavior as an HTTP redirect window.location.replace("http://stackoverflow.com"); // similar behavior as clicking on a link window.location.href = "http://stackoverflow.com";
