User's redirect to another page in JavaScript\jQuery

How to redirect the user from one page to another using JavaScript or jQuery?
09 August 2017   2377

There are few ways to solve this issue.

  1. Without jQuery

    jQuery is not necessary, and window.location.replace(...) will simulate an HTTP redirect.

    window.location.replace(...)is better than using window.location.href, because replace() does not keep 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:

    // similar behavior as an HTTP redirect window.location.replace("http://hype.codes"); 
    // similar behavior as clicking on a link window.location.href = "http://hype.codes";
  2. Usign jQuery 
    $(location).attr('href', 'http://hype.codes')
