Set Layouts page as Welcome page of Sharepoint 2013 Teamsite without any delay RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have tried to set the layouts page as welcome page for my SharePoint 2013 site Home page.

    I have tried below methods.

    1.Added a content editor web part in home page and wrote script (window.location.href)to redirect to layouts page

    2.Created a redirect page by giving redirect url and modified the layout page for reducing time seconds from 5 to 0.

    3.Tried adding the html in content editor webpart  

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://MYSERVERNAME.com/_layouts/folder/mypagename.aspx">

    I tried powershell commands too. But after that when i click the pagetitle am getting exception and the url looks like below

    http://inbaghpc00250:1790/sites/IMSShareboot/.ServerRelativeUrl%20_layouts/15/MISCIMSApplication/test.aspx

    All the above methods works in redirection.

    But when i click the page title or logo in home page it is opening the home page first and then redirects from there.

    My customer does not want to see the empty home page instead it should redirect to layouts page without any delay.

    Please help with any other solution.

  • Hi,

    You could use SharePoint designer to set custom page as welcome page.
