Automatic link from old to new website

Good evening all

My main website had several pages of my travel companion. This started to distort the statistics so started a new site for them.

The old pages are still there with a link to the new site eg click here

Can I make this an automatic re-directiona and if so how?

Yyou used to be someone else didn't you? Did you forget the old name?

Spot on PP. Was Michaelmas but like you say forgot all my details. Just had my 63rd birthday and only the monkey keeps me sane.

Tried as suggested in IE6 and Firefox with no difference
Line reads (also tried it without.index.html)
<title><META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="5; URL=click here"></title>

Try after the title tags and before the head end tag; i.e. between </title> and </head>

Put it in the template just before </head> and works with a slight delay. Is the 5 in the code 5 seconds and could this be reduced?

Will tidy the rest of them tomorrow

Thanks FM and PP works a treat and James Monkey in Tulsa has sent his thanks as well.
