I have a question about opening a URL in current window by using window.open. It is a master-page in SharePoint 2013

The condition is :

If current window is the site AAA, user opens the site BBB in this current window.

If current window is not the site AAA, user opens the site BBB in a new window.

The line window.open("http://siteBBB","_blank"); works

but the line window.open("http://siteBBB","_self"); does not work. It always the same page after the script running

if(window.location.href.indexOf("http://siteAAA") > -1)


    } else 


if(window.location.href.indexOf("http://siteAAA") > -1) {            
    window.location.href = "http://siteBBB";
} else {

  • I tried this, the same result like window.open. I added a alert after window.open(), the alert displays when script running, and the page refresh. But always the same page, it does not change – AnnaCICI May 27 '15 at 6:23
  • Maybe I should force a script re-execute for window.open? – AnnaCICI May 27 '15 at 7:28
  • Which browser you are testing with? Also try window.location.assign("http://siteBBB"); and window.location.replace("http://siteBBB") – Amal Hashim May 27 '15 at 11:51
