    Preventing users from opening index directly

    hey folks,
    i m working on a website. in which i m using a page which calls on index.php after that web address is called. as it has JS function which make index page open in popup. what i wanna do is now is that if someone (as many of us know root page 90% is index.php), if anyone enter index page directly. JS should check if that person came from redirect.php or not. if not, he will have some sort of error msg. how can i achieve this?
    All those who wander aren't lost.

    You can't

    1. Not everyone has JavaScript enabled
    2. The referrer field is under your visitors control and can contain anything they like
