    Hello all, sorry for any rules being broken, I am brand new on these forums.
    I have a question about a page I am designing. What I am trying to achieve is a countdown page which will display instead of my front page. The page will be a countdown till release(using Java). I can do that fine, but what I want to do and where I have trouble is when that countdown is complete/hits zero, I want the rest of the site to be "unlocked" if you will. I would like it to change the homepage from the countdown to the true homepage and make the rest of the content available. This doesn't have to be triggered by the countdown it self, it can be by any means.(ie, another PHP file).
    I would love any help at all.

    So you want to block the entire website from search engines and annoy any visitors that happen to visit the website root URL.

    And you do know that "splash pages" really went out of fashion in the last century.
