Session expired message doesn't show-up in Confluence

Hi there,

Is there a way to let the user know (pop-up message ) that his /her Confluence session has expired due to session timeout?


For example :

When  a user is logged out due to session timeout in confuence page and doesn't put any text message or a warning  message comes out and says  the session has expired. please login. like it's done in online banking,

I see it even when the seesssion expired / time out  it doesn't go to main login page and  its stays in the current page.


Please advise.

Please check out Brian Tom's answer on Session expired message for Confluence

He explains why users may not be redirected to the login page as well as suggesting a customization to add a banner when a session expires.
