    Links revert to homepage automatically

    I designed the website www.mullikinad.com and everything worked great. However today when you click on a link, it takes you to that page for 1 second and then automatically reverts back to the homepage. Why is it doing this and what is the solution?

    Toward the top of those pages, you have a meta redirect back to the index page. It looks like:
    Code:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=index.php?hf=3&filename=index.htm">
    You'd need to remove that.

    I do agree with this, you might place that on your site accidentaly, hmmm..are you trying out something, sir sasami43? It also looks like it's your first time here in the forum..

    Thanks for the help. I removed all the meta redirect and now the links are working, except for the first link "click here to continue". Do you know why it is still redirecting that page back to the index? Thx.

    HI sasami, I already made another check on the page. The "click here to continue" link is not redirecting to the index page anymore, I guess you already fixed it. Everything seems to work fine.

    Thanks everyone,
    The links are no longer redirecting to the homepage, however the sidebar is no longer showing on all the linked pages. The original web developer said she built the site with a php page. I am taking over as Webmaster and am unfamiliar with php so I'm not sure why it is not working anymore. Can anyone please tell me how to fix this? Or am I in over my head??

    Do the pages still have all the PHP code in them, or is it not even there? Yes, if the site is PHP and you don't know PHP, it could be a bit of a project to be maintaining it....
