Shazron Abdullah resolved CB-62.
--------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Workaround is to use the JS function here: 
https://gist.github.com/1725083

{code:javascript}
function openInWebView(url)
{
        var anchor = document.createElement('a');
        anchor.setAttribute('href', url);
        anchor.setAttribute('target', '_self');
        
        var dispatch = document.createEvent('HTMLEvents')
        dispatch.initEvent('click', true, true);
        
        anchor.dispatchEvent(dispatch);
}
{code}

>             Project: Apache Callback
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>            Reporter: Shazron Abdullah
>
> **Summary:** You can no longer redirect to a different page by updating `document.location.href`.
> reported at: https://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-iphone/issues/270
> by: https://github.com/buddydvd
> **To reproduce:** Add `www.google.com` to `PhoneGap.plist`'s `ExternalHosts` array. Add
an anchor link to `index.html` with its `onclick` handler set to use JavaScript to redirect
the webView to`http://www.google.com`.
>     <a href="#" onclick="document.location.href='http://www.google.com/'; return false;">click
me</a>
> **Expected:** Clicking the anchor link will load `http://www.google.com` in the embedded
webView.
> **Actual:** Clicking the anchor link loads `http://www.google.com` in Mobile Safari.
