Hi, i am just updating my wordpress and i am wanting to write a redirect function, i have tried to use the header(); but this does not work.

Is javascript the only way?

WordPress already has a redirect function:

Can be done with HTML :
Create an index.html file in the directory where you want to redirect people and paste in this:

    <head> 
        <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://crakken.com"> 
    </head> 

        Redirecting...

Or simply paste the meta in the head tag of your file.

Even that is not working.

I have created it like normal:

add_action('wp_head', 'ubl_check_page');
function ubl_check_page(){

    global $wpdb;

    $pagechanger= $wpdb->get_row("SELECT pagechange FROM ifpagechange WHERE id=1", "OBJECT");

    if($pagechanger->pagechange == 1){

        $ubllocation = UBL_PATH . 'page.php';
        wp_redirect( $ubllocation, '302');

    }

}

It wont do this as its not putting it actually within the head tag so the meta will not work as needed.

You need to add it earlier, it’s clearly stated in the docs:

Please note: wp_redirect will not be called if the page has started, so make sure to call it higher up.

Try adding it to pre_get_posts or, worst case, init.

Also, $status should be integer, not string, so you should remove ’’
