You can redirect the user to another page when JavaScript is disabled by using pure HTML and HTTP. To do this, add a <noscript> tag in your HTML code that contains a meta refresh tag with a redirect URL. For example:

1
2
3
<noscript>
  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=http://www.example.com/noscript">
</noscript>


In this example, the user will be redirected to http://www.example.com/noscript if JavaScript is disabled in their browser.

It is important to note that the tag is a fallback solution and should not be relied upon as the primary way to redirect users. It is recommended to build your website in a way that gracefully handles JavaScript being disabled by using progressive enhancement or graceful degradation techniques.

To implement a more graceful redirection when JavaScript is disabled, you can include a noscript message with a link to the desired page. Here's an example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
<!-- JavaScript redirection -->
<script type="text/javascript">
  window.location.href = "http://www.example.com/redirect";
</script>

<!-- Fallback message for JavaScript disabled -->
<noscript>
  <p>Please enable JavaScript or <a href="http://www.example.com/redirect">click here</a> to continue.</p>
</noscript>


In this example, when JavaScript is enabled, the user will be automatically redirected to "http://www.example.com/redirect". But if JavaScript is disabled, the noscript section will be displayed with a message indicating that JavaScript needs to be enabled or providing a link to the desired page.
