Login redirection on multi language site

Postby Laurent Zotto » Thu Oct 05, 2017 1:41 pm

Hello

I have a site supporting 4 languages.
I want the user to be redirected to the language related Home page (or other) after successful login or logout.
How can this be achieved?
I tried today to duplicate the login form module and define the settings for each single language. I set also the redirection page accordingly.
...but again after login, I get redirected to the english site despite the language I was using before!

Thank you for your comments

Regards
Laurent

Try the following:

- In the Plugin "System - Language Filter", for the option "Language Select for new Visitors", choose the value "Browser Settings" (the default value is "Site Language") and save the settings.

As far as I understand, the question is not related to a new visitor, but rather if the user who logs in has or not a specific preferred site user language.
If you define Default or not for that user, then, if you want, when he/she logs in, to be redirected to the same language page, just set "Automatic Language Change" to No.

Hello

Thank you all for the comments. The reply from infgraph768 was good.
Indeed I opened the page, selected a language and than logged in and was redirected to EN
So changing the "Automatic Language Change" to no in the settings for plugin "System - Language Filter" works fine!

Thank you again
Cheers
Laurent
