Login Module Redirection Issues goes to profile page

Post by CourtneyG » Mon Mar 23, 2020 5:47 am

I am having issues with the login/registration modules (improved AJAX login and register) redirection on my Joomla website. I can set the modules login redirect which works if I navigate to the login page specifically and it will send me to the set page. However when I click on a page that requires login it redirects me to the page saying the individual needs to be logged in, and once they log in they get unintentionally redirected to their profile page (this is not a page I created so I am assuming it just comes with Joomla). I noticed this has been discussed in the past with other login modules long ago but so far I cannot get any of those old fixes to work. I also tried another login module SClogin and get the same issue with that module as well. If someone could give me a hand helping me understand why this redirection is happening I would be super thankful.

Redirection set in the Module has no effect when login in with the Component.

So where should I be setting the redirection if it is not in the module? Sorry I'm pretty new to Joomla so its taking some time to wrap my brain around it. I have even edited the module from the website when logged in and those changes have an effect from the main login section and will redirect to the main page. But if I go to any page that requires login and then asks for it after logging in to see that page it takes me to the profile page which is not intended and isn't making much sense to me. It takes me to the login.html page which redirects to the profile page which doesn't seem to have a way to set it.

Set redirection in the Menu Item.

If you don't have a Memu Item, create one.

I create the menu item and set the redirection but that did not change anything
