How to redirect URL in Javascript or jQuery

I will present some ways to redirect the user to another page from the client side using only plain javascript.

1) Using window.location.href you obtain a similar behavior  as an HTTP redirect

2) Using window.location.replace

window.location.href VS window.location.replace

It is better than using window.location.href, because replace() does not put the originating page in the session history, meaning the user won’t get stuck in a never-ending back-button process.

3) Using the widow.history.back you can redirect the user to the previous page he was before.

4) Using window.navigate

5)  Using self.location

6) Using jQuery

See you again in our next tutorial.
