Exit page redirect

Monday, June 26th, 2006
I am wanting to create an automatic redirect exit page to another of my websites when my visitors leave my main website.

Well, when soneone leaves your web-page the onUnload event would be triggered. If you add a code to open a popup into the <body> tag, the popup would be shown every time they leave your page.

<body onUnload="window.open('http://MySite.com/popup.html')">

This is a useless solution. The popup would be shown even they click a link to another page inside your site. We need to block the popup when they click a link or submit a form at your page.

How to hide the Return URL of your order form

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

Have you ever looked into your Order-page HTML-code?
Did you see a code like this below?
<form action= "https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">
  <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
  <input type="hidden" name="business" value="my@email.com">
  <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Item name">
  <input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="1234">
  <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="19.95">
  <input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="1">
  <input type="hidden" name="return"
    value="http://myhost.com/payment_success.html">
  <input type="hidden" name="cancel_return"
    value="http://myhost.com/payment_cancel.html">

  <input type="submit" value="Buy Now">
</form>

What this hidden return and cancel_return fields mean?

This means people would arrive the URL you’ve entered in the return field after the payment completed.

I bet you wouldn’t like they look into your code and then open your return page without a payment. Even if this is not a download-page but just a thank-you page.

You can hide this field with a simple JS-script.
