I'm not asking for code, i'm just asking for guidance or an opinion on how to approach this request.
First the back story.
I have a charities web page where the upper half is a form that allows visitors to select various options in order to display a list (table) of charities from a MySQL database table on the lower half of the page.
What I'd like
I would like to have an intro page that acts like a screen saver when the charities page is inactive for some minutes. As soon as the visitor clicks a picture on the intro screen saver page, the screen saver page is replaced with the charities page.
Jumping from the intro page to the charities page on mouse click is no problem...
I just don't know how i would determine inactivity on the charities page so it can jump back to the intro page. I know that there is a meta tag i can use to refresh (reload) the page after some time interval, but that's as far as i have gotten.
1. How would i go about setting up a timeout function?
2. would this be a candidate for a frame page?
Any help would be appreciated.
