default.aspx redirect to SitePages/Home.aspx? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2013 version. In new SharePoint 2013 version default page always goes to "siteurl/SitePages/Home.aspx", but users already have links "siteurl/default.aspx". 

    So now how can redirect them when they hit "siteurl/default.aspx" and redirect them to "siteurl/SitePages/Home.aspx"?

  • Hi Sri,

    Not sure if it's suitable for your requirement in this case, have you tried to copy the "Home.aspx" page and replace the default.aspx page(back up the orginal default.aspx) in siteurl foot folder, then set it as site default page as users have saved?

    Please go to the siteurl root folder where default.aspx is located in with SharePoint Designer 2013, then rename the default.aspx to another name, then copy the "siteurl/SitePages/Home.aspx" to site root folder location, then rename it as "default.aspx" and set it as default site page.

  • hello Sri,

    You can try adding a redirect on "siteurl/default.aspx" like:

    <html>
    < head>
        <title>Your Page Title</title>
        <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=siteurl/SitePages/Home.aspx" />
    < /head>
    < body>
    < /body>
    < /html>

  • Hi ItsMe, to go along with Jeff's answer, you can use his code and save it as a ".html file." Place that file in a library somewhere. Then add a content editor to the ""siteurl/default.aspx" page. Edit the content editor and put in the URL of that html file in the "content link" field.
