I have a Custom List called "Items" When a user Views or Edits an item in this list I would like the Close or Save button to redirect the user to the home page and not the Default "All Items" of the list.

How can I accomplish this?

Using the below code you can achieve this. It allows to set the redirection on the client-side

$(document).ready(function() {

    var button = $("input[id$=SaveItem]");
    // change redirection behavior
        button.click(function() {
            var elementName = $(this).attr("name");
            var aspForm = $("form[name=aspnetForm]");
            var oldPostbackUrl = aspForm.get(0).action;
            var currentSourceValue = GetUrlKeyValue("Source", true, oldPostbackUrl);
            var newPostbackUrl = oldPostbackUrl.replace(currentSourceValue, "MyRedirectionDestination.aspx");

            if (!PreSaveItem()) return false;
            WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions(elementName, "", true, "", newPostbackUrl, false, true));

  • Give your custom redirect home page Url in newPostbackUrl May 19, 2016 at 6:24

Using below mentioned trick you can change the button's redirection behavior in Display or Edit form.
