The documentation was missing the crucial final step - you need to re-jar the files once the change has been made.

The alternative (if your system allows it, most Linux systems do but I'm unsure about Windows) is to edit the xml file directly in the jar. Either way, the application won't pick up the xml file if it's directly in lib/, it needs to be in the jar.

I've updated the documentation to reflect this.

Instead of updating server files , the following script will work. add the below script in 

generate configuration->look & feel->Coding HTML


if(jQuery('#header-details-user-fullname').text().indexOf(" ") ==-1 && window.location.href.indexOf("/login.action?logout=true") != -1)
{ window.location = contextPath+"/your Logout page"}

It worked fine for me
