Javascript - Showing a goodbye message to visitors

October 2016

It is sometimes very nice to display a message thanking your visitors for their visit. This tip is designed to show you how.

The JavaScript

Copy/Paste this code between the <head> </ head> of your html page

<script language="javascript"> 
function bye() 
      // modify text to your needs 
      alert ("Thank you for your visit!"); 

Calling the Script

To use this feature, simply add the onunload event in the <body>

<body onUnload="bye();">

Note that

  • This is to be made on all pages of your site.
  • Many users no more appreciate such "intrusion", so used sparingly (imagine a news site with such a message ... and it pop-up "10-100 times a day).
