Good day,

That won't submit the form, unfortunately.  It'll just redirect the user to
the page without submitting the contents of the form.

If the browser supports it, one can use javascript to submit the form after
a certain amount of seconds have elapsed.

HTML forms execute in the client's browser, which does not care at all
the form came from static html file, php, Perl, whatever.

The simplest way to get a browser to time out is with a  <META> refresh html
tag in the <HEADER> part of your page e.g.


This would automatically redirect to the too_long.html page after 15
