If you look at this link this will show you what happens when you logged in (I have attached a photo in the content so that you can see)

ok, so that means that the parameter is not working:

Code: Select all

$return = $user->getParam('url');


Try to hard code a URL to see if the other code is working.

tried to hard code and it didn't make any difference. I have put it back now to how it was: -

$return = $user->getParam('url');

I have just had a quick mess around and changed this bit: -

// Redirect if the return url is not registration or login
if ( ! $return ) {
$return = 'index.php?option=com_user';
}

to

// Redirect if the return url is not registration or login
if ( ! $return ) {
$return = 'http://www.ips-photography.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2&Itemid=3';

and it worked

I just tried this myself and that works as well:

Code: Select all

      if(!JError::isError($error))
      {
         $return = "index.php?test";
         // Redirect if the return url is not registration or login
         if ( ! $return ) {
            $return   = 'index.php?option=com_user';
         }

         $mainframe->redirect( $return );
      }


So if your url parameter is not working then it is probably not saved in the user object.

This is what is in the user.xml (I am hoping this is what you meant): -

<form>
<params>
<param name="admin_language" type="languages" client="administrator" default="" label="Back-end Language" description="paramAdminLanguage" />
<param name="language" type="languages" client="site" default="" label="Front-end Language" description="paramLanguage" />
<param name="editor" type="editors" default="" label="User Editor" description="WYSIWYG Editor for this User" />
<param name="helpsite" type="helpsites" default="" label="Help Site" description="Help Site for this User" />
<param name="timezone" type="timezones" default="" label="Time Zone" description="Time Zone for this User" />
<param name="login" type="menuitem" default="" label="Login Redirection URL" description="What page will the login redirect to after user login, if let blank will load module default" />
<param name="logout" type="menuitem" default="" label="Logout Redirection URL" description="What page will the login redirect to after user logout, if let blank will load module default" />
</params>
</form>

ok, I so you added two parameters login and logout, correct?

However, in your controller you are trying to access the parameter url, which doesn't exist.

Try to find this

Code: Select all

getParam('url');
and replace it with this

Code: Select all

getParam('login');

Re: User Specific Login Redirect

Postby ebajh69 » Tue Jun 08, 2010 2:30 pm

I didn't see this answered before.. So apologies if it was. I am running Joomla 1.5.18.

When a user registers on my site, I need them to enter some additional information. When they log into the site for the 1st time (or until such time as they have entered in the information) I want to redirect users one page (a form I have setup which prompts to collect additional user information). If they already entered the necessary information, I want them to be redirected to a different page upon subsequent logins.

Someone wrote me this piece of code that is supposed to check that the user entered the additional information, but I am not sure where I would put it to get the results I described above.

I am using the standard Login Module.

Code: Select all

<?php
// check if in noc_users table
$database = &JFactory::getDBO();
$USER =& JFactory::getUser();
$uid = $USER->id;
$qrstring = "SELECT * FROM #__noc_users WHERE user_id = '$uid' ";
$database->setQuery($qrstring);
$dberr="";

if (!$database->query()) {
   $dberr = $database->getErrorMsg();
   echo($dberr."<br>");
   echo($func." : ".$uid."-- ".time());
}
$rows = $database->loadObjectList();
$num_rows = count($rows);
   if($num_rows == 0){
      $host = $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"];
      header("Location: /index.php?option=com_nocform&func=doform");
}
?>


Thanks in advance.

Re: User Specific Login Redirect for JOOMLA 1.5.17

Postby kiminox » Tue Jul 13, 2010 2:45 am

Hi,

For those who faced to the same problem, here is the process for the Joomla! 1.5.17.
1) open the XML file: administrator/components/com_users/models/user.xml
and the parameters that will be available for EACH user:

Code: Select all

<!-- Yoong Kim 13/07/2010: add custom redirection after logged -->
      <param name="url" type="text" default="" label="Front-end Login Redirect" description="URL redirect for a Front-end login" />
      <param name="adminurl" type="text" default="" label="Back-end Login Redirect" description="URL redirect for a Back-end login" />


2) Open the PHP file:administrator/components/com_login/admin.login.php
and modify the line number 66 (well, around 66 of course!)

Code: Select all

      // Yoong Kim 13/07/2010: add custom redirect
      $user =& JFactory::getUser();
      $user->getParameters();
      $returnAdminUrl = $user->getParam('adminurl');
      
      
      if (!JError::isError($result)) {
         // Yoong Kim 13/07/2010: add custom redirect
         $return = 'index.php';
         if ( !empty($returnAdminUrl) ) {
              $return = $returnAdminUrl;
         }
         $mainframe->redirect($return);
      }


3) if you want to configure a special url redirect for an user, go to the control panel, open the user manager. In the "Parameters" tab, you should see 2 ne parameters:
Front-end Login Redirect
Back-end Login Redirect

Fill the fields and save the user.

Yoong

PS: you can do the same thing for the frontend login.

1. On the files
administrator/components/com_users/models/author.xml
administrator/components/com_users/models/registered.xml
administrator/components/com_users/models/user.xml
right before </params> add the following lines:

Code: Select all

<param name="logout" type="menuitem" default="" label="Logout Redirection URL" description="What page will the login redirect to after user logout, if let blank will load module default" />


2. Go to components/com_user/controller.php and after line ~134:

Code: Select all

$error = $mainframe->login($credentials, $options);

add the following code:

Code: Select all

$user =& JFactory::getUser();
$menu =& JSite::getMenu();
$userRedirect = $user->getParam('login');
if ($userRedirect) {
        $item = $menu->getItem($userRedirect);
   $url = $item->link;
        $return = $url;
}


3. One the same file (controller.php) after line ~160:

Code: Select all

   function logout()
   {
      global $mainframe;

add:

Code: Select all

$user =& JFactory::getUser();
$menu =& JSite::getMenu();
$userRedirect = $user->getParam('logout');
if ($userRedirect) {
        $item = $menu->getItem($userRedirect);
   $url = $item->link;
        $return = $url;
}

then a couple of lines later, after

Code: Select all

      if(!JError::isError($error))
      {

add:

Code: Select all

if (!$return)

one line before the next if.

4. Set up individual user login and logout redirections from the user manager.


This is absolutely amazing!! IT WORKS WITH COMMUNITY BUILDER with no additional codes!
Thanks so much!! :D

I succeeded in getting the redirect to work. So after a login the user ends up on his personal page. But now I would like a button to get him (or her) back to that page after he (os she) has been browsing the site. From what I read in this topic this seems to be a wish more people have. Anyone succeeded in getting this button to work?

Why don't you create a module, generate the URL and output that as a link or button?

You would will find a Tutorial on how to create a module here: http://docs.joomla.org/How_to_create_a_module

And instead of outputing Hello World, you will need to output the link , similar to the redirect you have done earlier.

Code: Select all

<?php
$user =& JFactory::getUser();
$userRedirect = $user->getParam('YOUR_PARAMETER');
?>
<a href="<?php echo $userRedirect; ?>">YOUR_CLICK_HERE_TEXT</a>


You will need to change YOUR_CLICK_HERE_TEXT and YOUR_PARAMETER to whatever you need.

Thanks Olaf
After I've finished trying to get Pages and Items fix my problem I'll have a look at your solution.

My problem is in fact quit simple. I need different users to have different access to documents. And NO DOCMAN is not a solution for me cause in Docman it is not possible to multi-select access-groups on a document. So every time users/groups/access changes I have to rearrange.

The idea is to get users (belonging to a certain group) to a page with weblinks to documents and to use the button to let them return to this page.

So far; http://www.pages-and-items.com/index.php looks promissing to me!

Thanks again!

yes, JFactory is a joomla class, so you will not be able to run it outside the joomla framework.
That's why I suggested to create a module with a link to the tutorial:
http://docs.joomla.org/How_to_create_a_module

Please note that you have to install the module in order to use the joomla framework.

I've tried to create a module for golfscores on my website but got stuck. Since this is a whole new subject I'll leave that for what it is. Pages and Items does the trick for me. I've created several pages and can redirect users to the pages they need to see together with a nice link in a menu. Thank you all for your time and effort!

Hi
I'm running 1.5.18, but I can't seem to make this work. When I make the changes to admin.login.php, attempts to login just loops back to the login page. Following is the code for my admin.login.php
<?php

}

$module = & JModuleHelper::getModule('mod_login');
$module = JModuleHelper::renderModule($module, array('style' => 'rounded', 'id' => 'section-box'));
echo $module;
}

function login()
{
global $mainframe;

// Check for request forgeries
JRequest::checkToken('request') or jexit( 'Invalid Token' );

$credentials = array();

$credentials['username'] = JRequest::getVar('username', '', 'method', 'username');
$credentials['password'] = JRequest::getVar('passwd', '', 'post', 'string', JREQUEST_ALLOWRAW);

// Yoong Kim 13/07/2010: add custom redirect
$user =& JFactory::getUser();
$user->getParameters();
$returnAdminUrl = $user->getParam('adminurl');


if (!JError::isError($result)) {
// Yoong Kim 13/07/2010: add custom redirect
$return = 'index.php';
if ( !empty($returnAdminUrl) ) {
$return = $returnAdminUrl;
}
$mainframe->redirect($return);
}





if (!JError::isError($result)) {
$mainframe->redirect('index.php');
}

LoginController::display();
}

function logout()
{
global $mainframe;

$result = $mainframe->logout();

if (!JError::isError($result)) {
$mainframe->redirect('index.php?option=com_login');
}

LoginController::display();
}
}


I'm new to this so be gentle with me. I'm wondering if it might be that I need to add the URL redirects for the login I'm using somewhere first, but I don't know where to do this.

Can someone please post the complete instructions for this for Joomla! 1.5.22. I have tried several versions of the instructions in this thread, and none is working yet. I'm assuming it is because my version is newer than older sets of instructions.
