I have been searching around the net looking for solutions to my problem, but none have worked. My issue is that when i redirect using:
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url=<?php echo $URL; ?>">
The hash tag part of URL gets removed by IE. So example.com/sample#foo will just load as example.com/sample. This happens in all version of IE and appears to be a bug, but the question is how do I get around this issue?
Here is the redirect page template for wordpress that I am using:
<?php /* Template Name: Redirect */ ?> <?php if (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <?php $URL = get_the_excerpt(); if (!preg_match('/^http:\/\//', $URL)) $URL = 'http://' . $URL; ?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url=<?php echo $URL; ?>"> </head> <body> </body> </html> <?php endif; ?>
None of these work, so I am thinking I might need to use a cookie method to solve this but I am unsure of how this would be implemented in my particular case.
Thanks in advance!
