I tend to go for simple solutions

Actually the current setup is extremely convoluted, with its cloaking, frames, strange javascripts and cookies (none of which are recommended practices). Adding even more javascript should only be considered a temporary emergency fix before moving to a proper paid host.

It's simple in that the alternative is to research other suitable hosting services, try and persuade Mr. Treasurer to pay for it by trying to explain what the benefits to the members will be (i.e. none), move all the files across and learn how to implement the site in an efficient and professional way. Or I could go with the simple solution and just keep the code as it is to automatically handle the page refreshes. I can't help thinking of the phrase, "if it works, don't fix it". smile.gif

Exactly, I think the JS has to do with the ads.

Well, can you host your domain there for free?

I've used HyperPHP hosting service from when I first set the site up 10 years ago. It's always been a free account and it was ad-free in the beginning. They introduced ads later though and when I complained they took them off when I said I would put a link to their website on every page. They also provide free technical support which has been very good on the few times I've needed it (that's usually only provided on paid accounts).

So I can recommend them, it won't be worth moving to a paid account unless it's absolutely necessary and I can't see a reason why it would be (unless they change their policy).
