Redirect webpages with HTML, PHP, .htaccess, Java+Script, CGI-Perl, ASP.NET and ColdFusion

Here are examples of code how to redirect an old page/url/domain to a new one with most popular client+server side programming/scripting languages. We use 301 http status code (permanent redirect). If you need temporary redirection use 302 status code instead of 301. It is better to prefer server-side redirection, because some clients are surfing with javascript and http-refresh disabled browsers. Do not forget to test your code first!

Why tableless design, DIV vs. TABLE

Everybody says avoid tables when you are creating design elements like layouts, themes, pages... Why?


  • Main
    (X)HTML says; tables are for tabular data not for website-layout
  • Speed
    Tables have much design code than content, divs are faster for download. Save bandwidth!
  • Usability
    Tables let confusing while creating layout(You have to remember which TR or TD ends in which template file)
  • Debug

CSS Menu without JavaScript, Pure-CSS, Hidden, Mouseover-EffectThis is another CSS Menu with changed direction. Many website visitors are online with javascript-disabled clients(because of filters, access rules etc). And you want use a nice rollover multi-level menu on your homepage. CSS ist the perfect solution for this. All modern browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera, Google Chrome, Apple Safari support css.

CSS hierarchy and inline style sheets

I have a problem with inline stylesheets. I like to use inline style sheets instead of using css code in head section of an html page or an external .css file.


But I have a problem when I want it to ffect just a part of subelement and not other paralell elements. Example 2:

    • ...

I want to my third-level "ul" have border but second-level not. I can do it with css code like this:

div ul { border: none; }
div ul li ul { border: 1px solid red; }

Table colspan rowspan with DIVs

I want to use DIVs and CSS for my layouts etc. I need some table like areas sometimes. I know that I can create a grid table like element with "display: table", than "display: table-row", than "display: table-cell".

But how can I create a table with colspan and rowspan with CSS and DIVs? Without DIV floating and fixed with / height...

Preload images with JavaScript or CSS

I have a small website with two background images for top menu. When I bring mouse first time over a menu element it takes 2-3 seconds that second background image loaded (style link:hover background: url(secondimg.png)). For this short time user see nothing, of course it is annoying. To escape this situation I want to preload all images inklusive background images for menu elements, links, divs etc. Is there a very easy and short javascript or css trick? Thanks for any help!

Common HTML tags for fast copy-paste

Every webmaster needs some common html tags like a,table,img,div,headings or embed code for windows media player or adobe(formerly macromedia) flash very often. Mostly it is possible to save much time to just easily copy-paste empty tags instead of write them. Therefore I am trying to create a useful list with possible examples.
