    I need code to load a link on a page without popping open a new window. Somewhat like a redirect, but this link opens a float-over that dims the background... That's why it can't load a new page. Anyone have any idea? Not looking for a meta tag.

    Not exactly sure what you're trying to explain. Could you give a bit more detail?

    Well, the page is mostly coded in ajax and we're having a bit of trouble. There is a link on the page that is similar to a popunder, but the page is dimmed out, and a little window pops up in order to allow the user to enter some info. This is to act as a gateway to the page, and what needs to happen is this link needs to be called as soon as this page loads.

    Basically an auto-click on page load...

    hang on so you're doing an ONEXIT command that makes the page fade?

    If that's what you're doing

    I would think a normal link
    Code:
    <a href="URL"></a>
    would work just fine

    I might be misreading

    Looks to me like a CSS trick, and the CSS of that page is easily viewable. You could also do it (possibly better?) with Flash. I don't think "plain" HTML will do it for you.

    That's a whole lot of change around for flash. No auto-click on page load?

    Summat involving the Javascript onLoad event handler, and the click() function?

    I used a tiny amount of Javascript for one site 18 months ago, so this may or may not be helpful :p

    What about a password command? The page starts to load and a little window automatically pops up that demands to have a password entered before it will continue loading the page. The background won't be "loaded but greyed out", but that may end up being an acceptable compromise. If the info to be entered is nonspecific, you could have it accept any string as a "password".
