Working with a client recently, we had a need to solve a URL redirection issue. In discussions we tossed around using SharePoint AAMs, IIS URL Rewrite and other possibilities. It’s great when the best solution turns out to be the easiest! The best solution ended up was to use a SharePoint Redirect page. It’s not something that is used very often, but it certainly fit the bill for our issue.
My focus in this quick tip is not to explain why I used a redirect page, that part should be obvious. All it does is automatically redirects someone to a URL you choose after a 5-second time delay when they hit the redirect page. Instead, my focus is to show you how to change the timeout value as I couldn’t find that documented anywhere else.
To do this, the redirect page is a publishing page layout. So to change the timeout, we need to edit the page layout.
