For example,

x/SiteDirectory/governingboard/handbook/ and anything under it needs to redirect x/about/gov/handbook

x/SiteDirectory/emphandbook/ and anything under it needs to redirect x/depts/hr/x-employee-handbook

Is there a way to do this inside Sharepoint, a setting on the page of the original address? or do I have to do this on the server directly? Or is there a third party program?

  • You can use ISA server for redirecting, if you got one in your farm :) – Muhammad Raja Nov 3 '13 at 23:01


  1. Add a javascript redirect in a content editor web part on the pages you want to be redirected.

  2. Edit the master page currently in use and create a javascript function to redirect the user according to the current URL.

But if you have ISA or TMG, rather implement a rule on there to handle the redirect.


You could use IIS Url Rewrite to do the redirects: http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite

But: If you have several servers, you have to do it multiple times!
