Hi bici,

Some options are discussed here (stack overflow) using meta refresh with a seconds delay or different javascript timeout / wait scripts. Chris Ferdinandi also gives a good how-to on performing an action after a set amount of time using vanilla javascript.

Thanks. i did as suggested and it worked out fine. 4 days later the client changed their minds and wanted the webpage <dead> … so all for naught, but i learned something nifty. <silver lining>

LOL. Happens to me as well – regularly even. Usually it last a little longer though. I learned a few .htaccess tricks on the way.
