    As seen in many websites that use Shockwave Flash, movie files, HTML documents, and graphics are preloaded. When they are finished being loaded, the user is then automatically redirected to the next webpage where those files are presented.

    An example of what I'm talking about is at:

    I need to incorporate this kind of script into one of my websites, but I'm not sure how to do it. I know how to activate a "preload" script, and I know how to redirect users to a different webpage on a timer system, but I don't know how to redirect after the images have loaded, automatically.

    If you can help me, I would be grateful!

    Start by putting all your preloading code in a script in the header.

    Then use this tag for the <body> tag:
    <body onLoad='window.location = "nowhere.net";'>

    And the user is redirected (to nowhere.net) once the entire page is loaded.

    You are a LIFESAVER! Thank you, my God! Obviously I am not well-versed in the web page progress, but this will help me with a few ideas I have.

    Thank you.
