Description of the issue

With Instant Web Publishing, I can't redirect the web browser to a specific webpage instead the iwp homepage when the time out is over.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I customized the file ipw_home.html page because i wanted to redirect the user to another webpage of my site. I proceed as described on the IWP documentation, with this javascript :

if (window != window.top) top.location = "http://www.mywebsite.com" instead of "/fmi/iwp/cgi?-home";

When the user is disconnected by a script, with the "Quit Application" step, it works just fine !

But when the session ends because the timeout is over, or if the admin console disconnect the client, after the error dialog box, the standard iwp homepage is displayed with the open database list.

Expected result

The http://www.mywebsite.com web page must be displayed on the web browser.

Actual result

The standard iwp homepage is displayed on the web browser with the open databases list.

Configuration information
