Hi there,

This is my first script where I need to redirect participants to a debriefing page, and I'm having trouble setting it up. 

In the settings, I go to 'redirect to a custom finish page' and upload a htm file. After this, it shifts over to 'redirect to external website' and has the .htm extension in the web address.
When following this URL, it takes participants to a blank page. 

Am I doing something wrong here?

This is the normal and expected behavior. The two options -- (1) custom finish page uploaded to the millisecond.com server and (2) redirect to some external URL -- are functionally identical, i.e. they boil down to the same thing.

> When following this URL, it takes participants to a blank page.

To see why that is, I'd need you to please post the link to your experiment's start page here.

Hi Dave, 


Problem solved.  I don't fully understand, but it had something do to with case sensitivity.  
At the finish page section, it redirected to this URL: https://scripts.millisecond.com/sgroves/Study_1/debrief.htm, whereas in the upload files section the link contained a lower-case 's' for 'study'.  
I changed the S to a lower case and this solved my problems.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for letting me know!
