DEV 2.5 - Avoid pages that auto-refresh or auto-redirect
Auto-redirects can prove difficult for many users. Auto-refresh can be highly disruptive especially for users of adaptive technologies and users who need more time to read content.
- Avoid auto-redirects:
- Use serverside redirection instead; or
- A static page with a link to the new address.
- Avoid auto-refresh - but if absolutely unavoidable:
- Provide a warning;
- Allow users to turn off the auto-refresh.
