Domino Web Server Redirecting on Session Logout

The Domino HTTP server is running session-based authentication.  Whenever it is issued a "?Logout" URL command, it tries to redirect the user to another Domino database.  This is strictly a server issue, not an app issue.  How can I make the server not do this?

Thanks,

Justin

Add redirectto parameter in your url.. so they will be redirected to where you want...say your home page !

eg: http://...?logout&redirectto=http://myhome.com

If this is a pop-up window, you can execute JavaScript's window.close or self.close function. Just put that code in a page and upon logout redirect the user to that page as suggested by Hemantha.

If this is not a popup page, it will still work, but it will prompt the user to confirm the closure. There would be a dialog saying the page is trying to close the window. Yes or No. If user says yes, the page will be closed.
