Make a redirect page in jQuery /JavaScript

How can I redirect the user from one page to another using jQuery?
I saw both window.location = url; and window.location.href = url; How are they different?

window.location returns an object.
jQuery is not necessary, and window.location.replace(...) will best simulate an HTTP redirect.
It is better than using window.location.href = '...';, because replace() does not put the originating page in the session history, meaning the user won't get stuck in a never-ending back-button fiasco.

- If you want to simulate someone clicking on a link, use: location.href.
- If you want to simulate an HTTP redirect, use: location.replace().
For example:

Code: Select all

// similar behavior as an HTTP redirect

// similar behavior as clicking on a link
window.location.href = '';

I think, it's better to use replace()
