Delayed Redirect

I want to create a page that when it opens it waits about five seconds
and then redirects the user to another page. Is this normally done
with JS? What is the easiest way to do this rails.

Thanks.

There’s actually an HTML meta tag that will handle redirects.

Just change the content=“x” to 5 so it’ll indicate to the browser to wait 5 secs before redirecting to the given address.
