<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content=0; URL= http://detroitsportsforum.com"> this is what's in my index html file. Could someone tell me what should be in the file, and how to put it in so others can access my page. When i type my URL in address bar site displays but at top of page title is Detroit Sports "index", instead of Detroit Sports Forum. I am a first time website builder that used a template.

thanks!!!!

You lack a quote.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="0; URL= http://detroitsportsforum.com">

WHY do you have that in your index page? If you have moved to a new address there are better ways.

With the above in it, people will be redirected from the page. Isn't that what you want?

Well, the tag you posted redirects the page to http://detroitsportsforum.com , or will when you have corrected it. Is that what you want to do?

What search? A search engine like Google? How do you mean that would make your page "load"?

It should be in HEAD as said on the page I linked to. Maybe this is clearer.

You haven't answered if you want the page to be redirected or not. I'm trying to find out what it is you try to do. tongue.gif

What site do you want to access and why can't you?

This tag
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="0; URL= http://detroitsportsforum.com">
redirects the browser to http://detroitsportsforum.com after 0 seconds. If http://detroitsportsforum.com is where you have that index page then you definitly shouldn't have that meta tag. The page will just keep reloading for ever.

I can't help wondering why you put something in that you don't know what it is. blink.gif

It shows you whre the TITLE goes, yes, and also the basic structure of a HTML document. wink.gif
