You make a page for your intro as your index.html, it will give your intro, redirect after 5 seconds (or whatever you want), then carry on to the rest to your site.

To redirect here is the code you need. (I assume you are using dreamweaver or the like because you arn't posting in the BV forum)

<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="(TIME UNTIL IT REDIRECTS); url=(PAGE TO REDIRECT TO)">

so it will look something like this


<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5; url=site.html">
After whatever page this is in loads, it will wait 5 seconds then load the page called site.html

So when someone goes to your site....
www.yoursite.com >> loads index.html (shows intro) >> page redirects >> loads your site (the main part of your site).

Hope this helps

Copy the code given by Watdaflip. in BV open your introduction page. Go to Page HTML. Click on "BETWEEN HEAD" Tag. Paste the code in the window. Make the time and site changes. Close the window. It's done

Naval Design, do you have any time to work? You seem to spend so much time graciously helping others with your vast knowledge base of BV. Thanks.
