Newloginbox has most featuers for redirecting build in, but the variable 'redirect_url' is only known when it's inside the Post/Get-Data.
The Feature of Redirecting per Typoscript can be enabled by changing line 89 of the class in file tx_newloginbox_p1,php from

$redirect_url = t3lib_div::GPvar('redirect_url')

$redirect_url = t3lib_div::GPvar('redirect_url') ? t3lib_div::GPvar('redirect_url') : $this->conf['redirect_url'] ;

In Typoscript now the variable 'redirect_url' can be changed and additionally is overwritten when present in the Post/Get-Data.

would a redirect_pid be better here? Along with getTypoLink?


Updated by David Bruchmann about 14 years ago

using redirect_pid is a good idea, perhaps it can be used additionaly.

Feature of $redirect_url includes some build-in features that can't (easily) build up by $redirect_pid only: You can add an array of domains which are handled depended from where the user comes.
I'm not very familiar with that feature because I still didn't use it, but using only $redirect_pid would again cut build-in functionallity.

I propose to use both, so $redirect_url will only be used if an array of URLs exist, otherwise $redirect_pid should be used.
About further options to manage the redirection-process I didn't spend any time but at least the variables from $fConf and GPvars should also be available in TS-$conf.


Updated by David Toshack about 14 years ago

So long as the getTypoLink call happens before the domain detection I don't think it will matter. Right?

Having both options is also a good idea though. There are existing setups to take into account anyway.


Updated by David Bruchmann about 14 years ago

I think too that doesn't matter.
Perhaps you can economize 2 millisecondes when the array (or list, it's called an array but perhaps is a comma separated list) has not to pe parsed without use ;-)

Perhaps there is an option to definitly control the behavior even if both variables are available, but I think that's only needed for elegance.

A first version of a redirection-framework has just been submitted to svn. Tomorrow there should be a t3x-snapshot at [1]. The framework should it make possible to integrate different ways to define redirecting (typoscript, flexform, user-group, ...) after login or logout.
As long as it is not self-explainable the "documentation" may be found in the source-code of pi1/class.tx_newloginbox_pi1.php, starting at line 255.

I would be very happy if you could test it. But please note that it is a development snapshot and may change until the first release on TER. Your feedback is welcome.

As it is not very nice to have to look in the sourcecode for some documentation I post here a mini-doc for you may start testing as soon as possible ;-)

Redirection may be configured in different ways, already implemented are:
- Typoscript on login, on error and on logout
plugin.tx_newloginbox_pi1.redirPageLogin = 123
plugin.tx_newloginbox_pi1.redirPageLoginError = 123
plugin.tx_newloginbox_pi1.redirPageLogout = 123
- Flexform (on login)
- redirection-setting from usergroup
- redirection-setting from user
- referrer (page originally requested, no domain-configuration necessary; it exists also an option with Domain-configuration for backwards-compatibility)
- redirect_url through GET/POST

Which methods apply and the order they apply is to be set in Typoscript:
- !! There is at the moment no default-setting here, therefore none of the methods will work before you configure it here !! Shure there will be a default on publishing this feature on TER ...
- here an example-configuration with all methods, just set it like that for testing:
- the last method "wins" (overwrites methods before); if you want the first method that finds some configuration being the winner, set plugin.tx_newloginbox_pi1.redirFirstMethod=1

This should be enough for getting started.

Please use for feedback our newsgroup at [1]. It is IMHO the better place to discuss changes than here in the bugtracker.

I was looking for the redirect feature and found this forum.
I downloaded the latest from svn and tried it.
first could not make it work but then it started getting into intinite redirect loops in both logoff and logon cases.

I cannot share the site access at the moment because will be demoing to a client so will have to roll back to the stable 3.1.

and THANK YOU all guys for the extensions!

As far as I understood from reading the document and the code the var $redirect_url should be configured through the var default_pi_vars. I have tried this with the latest newloginbox and the latest Typo3 4.1.2 with no success.

please have a look in #6603 for correct redirect for logout
