    I noticed after testing my log in button on my website that it redirects to the amember/member.php page. Is there a way to have it simply redirect back to the page I was currently on?

    Hi ckearns,

    Use hidden amember_redirect_url="some value" in your login form.

    If you need help with that, email me codeispoetry [at] amemberincremental.com

    Add this to your login forms:

    <input type="hidden" name="amember_redirect_url" value="/redirect_url/>"/>

    Is it possible to redirect product homepage after login? If so which code I must use?

    Interested in this solution

    I'm very interested in this as well. I'm setting up the form so users can log in from any page on the site. Once they're logged in, i'd like them to return to the page they were on.

    I tried adding Davidm1's code to the form, and it doesn't quite work for me. After logging in, it attempts to redirect as follows:

    http://mysite.com/redirect_url/>

    I'm sure I've done something wrong. If anyone can offer some advice, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I should add that what I'm looking for is a solution that can be dropped into all pages on the site as a php include, so the login form will redirect back to the page it's on (without having to enter a specific URL for every page).

    In "Manage Product" section there is a parameter " Product URL (Please enter URL of protected area...)" Is it possible to redirect this URL after login?

    Hey signal,

    If your member has only 1 product purchased, and he logged in via yoursite.com/amember/login.php, he will be redirected to the Product URL.

    Cheers,
    Lee

    I found this thread trying to solve the same problem. I am so close I can taste it, but I just can't quite figure out where/how to make the recommended changes. I have the standard files, login.html, and login.php that comes with amember.

    I too, want the user to return to the page they were on when they invoked login.php.

    This thread recommended a line of code:

    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"amember_redirect_url\" value=\"http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']."\">

    I just can't figure out specifically which file it goes in and where, and if any of this code is symbolic or if I should take it all as literal.

    Can someone help un muddy the water for me? I feel like this will fix what I need to do if I can just figure it out.

    I too would like to do this (redirect back to where the user logged in from).

    Where in the login form does it go?
    Are those \ escape characters necessary?

    thank you,
    Ron

    The line used above as an example, which for reference is:
    Code:
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"amember_redirect_url\" value=\"http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']."\">
    is meant to go into a PHP file (or perhaps a template file), inside the login form.

    This will direct the server to replace the $_SERVER[] variables with the actual URL the member is at when they log in, which in turn will tell aMember where to send the member to after logging them into the system.

    On my site, I found a bit of javascript to do the same thing. Here's my login form code:

    Code:
    <form method="post" action="/amember/login.php">
        <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript"><!--
    document.write('<input ');
    document.write('   type="hidden" ');
    document.write('   name="amember_redirect_url" ');
    document.write('   value="' + document.URL + '">');
    //--></script>
    
        <p>Username:<br />
        <input type="text" size="15" name="amember_login" /></p>
        <p>Password:<br />
        <input type="password" size="15" name="amember_pass" /></p>
        <p><input type="submit" value="Login" /></p>
    </form>
    
    With this, I can send my members links to new pages, and all they have to do is click the link and login to see the intended page.

    and does that replace code within the login.html page or get added in addition to what's there (and if so, where?)

    My login form is on a separate page not created by aMember.

    If you don't understand the PHP code equivalent, it's best not to try to use it.

    That doesn't seem to work for me. The form is calling the login.php and the script redirects to whatever product is first (if user has multiple products). Adding the amember_redirect_url value and setting it to member.php makes all login go through member.php. What am I missing?

    David, is this to be added to the login.php or login.html file?
