- Redirect? Or maybe Forward? Question

I have a personal website with a media.htm page in it. None contain "foul"
language at this time. But I've recently come across a few that I'd like to
upload that I think are funny but DO contain "naughty" words. What I'd like
to do is give my visitors another chance to opt-out should they change their
minds after clicking (the already well-explained) link. So my question is
this .... Is there a way I can create a SINGLE "warning, foul language
ahead" page that will send the visitor to the correct media file if there is
more than one link to that type of thing on my media.htm page?
Kinda like an "IF/THEN" type of thing. In other words, I'd like to have the
warning page display for about 5 seconds before it loads the video, but I
don't want to have to make a different warning page for each individual
"R-Rated" audio or video file. The SAME warning page would "know" what file
to direct you to by knowing what link you clicked on from my media.htm page.
Sorry. I'm a newb, and I didn't know how else to ask, or what the heck I'm
but I'd like to avoid that if possible.
Re: Redirect? Or maybe Forward? Question
Yes, create a gateway page. You could have thumbnails of the movies on
the page, with a rating of each, so the user would know before accessing
it. For example:
<p><img src="marypoppins.png" alt="Mary Poppins"><br>Mary Poppins (1964)
- G </p>
<p><img src="caligular.png" alt="Caligula"><br>Calligula (1979) - R</p>
You could do something server side with a database. For example:
SELECT video, rating FROM movies WHERE id = 2 and then create a warning
based on the record's result.
you cannot always guarantee that the user has it.
You can use ICRA labeling <http://www.icra.org/sitelabel/ in addition.
Programs like NetNanny can read the labeling and make decisions from
