MangixSimple Question.

WHY THE FUCK DO PPL USE THE FUCKING META TAG TO REDIRECT. honestly why? its a waste of code and Server-Side recirects are more efficient for a lot of reasons.

<ol><li>When you hit the back button, the webpage that has the meta tag will always redirect once the user goes back and that becomes annoying.</li>
<li>it is more efficient and easier to use Tongue</li></ol>

I think you should put some more thought into new threads before you create them. I don't think anyone cares about your perspecitive on the relevance of meta tag redirect.

I've never found myself in that situation. Possibly you could think before you click, that could prevent the "annoyance" of the re-redirect.

Mangixlets say im on gaming.net ok?

i want to go to gamingzone.org and that site has a page that has a meta tag that redirects to the true page.

i decide i dont like the site a lot. i click back and it directs me to the same page again and again. this becomes annoying.

if you use serverside redirects, i click back and im on gaming.net sooooooooo server side redirects are better Tongue.

So, basically, what you're saying is that, just because you haven't thought of a good reason to use meta redirects, there isn't one?

Obviously someone has a reason for using meta-redirect, otherwise they wouldn't.

Personally, I always use Response.Redirect().  But that doesn't mean there isn't a good reason for using meta-redirect.
