I Want JavaScript To Redirect - Not Working

I want to redirect my website to https://uprightcode.com/comming-soon
my code so far in js is


When I save and deploy successfully and the indicator is published in Netlify I try going on my website again and it has shows the homepage and I want a few minutes and go grab a snack, I come back and it is still not redirected. What is the problem?

I have also tired

window.location = "https://uprightcode.com/comming-soon";

Hi @Codeman, I don’t see an immediate issue with your code… do you have a link to the page to come?

BTW note that the equivalent to using the assignment operator would be, well, location.assign() – with location.replace() the current page will not be saved in the browser history, which may or may not be desired.

what do you mean by

A link to the page containing your code, i.e. that should redirect to the “coming soon” page.

I have 9 js files total of 906kb each with a ton of javascript I am not sure If I want to.

should be window.location.replace

It is probably a problem with other files of code the redirect works perfectly on codepen as you can see here.


EDIT (or an extra thing)

The reason I’m asking is that we we need to inspect the code in its context – there’s nothing wrong with it per se:


Yup, that’s exactly what I was getting at.

also… why would your page have lots of javascript files and a lot of javascript, if all you want the page to do is redirect?
Your entire page should be like…

window.location.replace("go here");



the other ones are for stuff. Duh

Then configure a proper server-side redirect… I have no experience with netlify myself but it seems to be easy enough:


I did this

it worked

Hmm, that is pretty awkward though. I do not see anything wrong with your code. Have you fixed it already?! What was wrong?

The post above yours answers these question!
