Solved Redirecting from login?

Post by Luke Frost on August 19th 2012, 1:38 am

I'm the administrator of an Australian & New Zealand forum that is built on the foundations of a manager game.
Here is the forum: http://gproaus.forumotion.com/

I wanted to know if it was possible to redirect to the 'posts since last visit' page upon login?
http://gproaus.forumotion.com/search?search_id=newposts
I believe this would generate a lot more activity than usual, as all active threads in one specific forum will be seen immediately upon login.

Any feedback appreciated.

Hi,

After login, its the server that redirects user to the index page. Since it is done from server side, I don't think we can override it or customize it.

If you add a hidden input field with the name of 'redirect' then it will use that to redirect the user. I know stock phpbb does this, I don't know if forumotion added it to other versions though.

Thanks for the replies.

@LG: I'm not sure what you mean when you say add a hidden input field. Only know the core basics of this kind of stuff. Sad

@ankillen: I wonder if it could be possible in the future if it's not already? I've experienced a forum that had this feature and the activity was always exceptionally higher because of that.

Wow, got it. Thank you mate Smile
In the past, I saw it add much more activity because it showed everything recent in the forum, at least since the manager last logged out.

Will trial it anyway. Thanks again.
