Hey Jerry. You really should be able to copy/paste here (sorry about your arthritis). Maybe try a different browser?

Hi Jerry,


I did not see this earlier but here's an example of accessing a JavaScript function from within PHP...


First, the function - note that it has a built-in fadeout so the redirection takes 5 seconds whilst fading - it also uses jQuery:

function redirect()



     setTimeout(function() {


    }, 5000);


now the PHP invocation of the JS function:

echo '<script type="text/javascript">', 'redirect();', '</script>';

Hope it helps.


Cheers from Oz.
