I just learned about HTML redirects

2020-01-15

While trying to find a way to redirect NoScript users to the text version of my site, I discovered HTML redirects. How did I not know about these before?! Basically, it's a way to tell the browser to navigate to a different URL, without HTTP codes or JavaScript. To use it on my site, I just put the following in the head of my index.html:

<noscript>
  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL='https://anderspitman.net/txt/feed'" />
</noscript>
