I'm using the following code but the redirect is not working. After the user registers it takes them back to the home page and not to volunteer/identity. I put a message on the homepage to display if the user is logged in and it appears that they are logged it at that point. This used to work before 2.5 on a different site that I haven't upgraded to 2.5. But now on this new install of 2.5 I can't get it to work.

Has anyone else experienced the same issues?

{% extends "_layout" %}

{% block content %}

<form method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8">
    {{ getCsrfInput() }}
    <input type="hidden" name="action" value="users/saveUser">
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="volunteer/identity">

    {% macro errorList(errors) %}
        {% if errors %}
            <ul class="errors">
                {% for error in errors %}
                    <li>{{ error }}</li>
                {% endfor %}
        {% endif %}
    {% endmacro %}

    {% from _self import errorList %}

    <label for="firstName">First Name</label>
    <input id="firstName" type="text" name="firstName" {% if account is defined %} value="{{ account.firstName }}"{% endif %}>

    {% if entry is defined %}
        {{ errorList(account.getErrors('firstName')) }}
    {% endif %}

    <label for="lastName">Last Name</label>
    <input id="lastName" type="text" name="lastName" required {% if account is defined %} value="{{ account.lastName }}{% endif %}">

    {% if entry is defined %}
        {{ errorList(account.getErrors('lastName')) }}
    {% endif %}

    <label for="email">Email</label>
    <input id="email" type="text" name="email"
        {% if account is defined %} value="{{ account.email }}"{% endif %}>

    {% if account is defined %}
        {{ errorList(account.getErrors('email')) }}
    {% endif %}

    <label for="password">Password</label>
    <input id="password" type="password" name="password">

    {% if account is defined %}
        {{ errorList(account.getErrors('password')) }}
    {% endif %}

    <button type="submit" class="button">Save and continue</button>


{% endblock %}

My config file looks like this:

return array(
    'devMode' => true,
    'useEmailAsUsername' => true,
    'autoLoginAfterAccountActivation' => true,
    'omitScriptNameInUrls' => true,
    'setPasswordPath' => array(
        'en' => 'account/setpassword'
  • So, if it's redirecting to the homepage and they are logged in, you're saying that it also skips the whole activation/email verification process altogether, correct? Anything in craft/storage/runtime/logs ? – Chase Giunta Dec 16 '15 at 19:50
  • Yes, I've turned off Verify email addresses in admin/settings/users/settings so it doesn't verify anything. I'll check the logs now. – Cavell Blood Dec 16 '15 at 19:54
  • @ChaseGiunta I checked the logs for redirect and I found this $_POST=array ( 'action' => 'users/saveUser' 'redirect' => 'volunteer/identity' 'firstName' => 'qwetr' 'lastName' => 'erty' 'email' => 'fdgh@me.com' 'password' => REDACTED ) So it looks like it is getting the correct values. – Cavell Blood Dec 16 '15 at 20:00

For Craft 2.6, if a hidden redirect input is set, Craft will now follow it first and fallback to the activateAccountSuccessPath if it's not available.

  • Thanks Brad! When is 2.6 coming out? soonish? Looks like Craft is only at 2.5.2757. Is there something I can do to patch it at the moment? – Cavell Blood Jan 12 '16 at 0:10
  • No ETA on 2.6, but hit up support@craftcms.com for the patched file if you want it. Just keep in mind that an auto-update could overwrite it at anytime, though. – Brad Bell Jan 12 '16 at 0:24
  • That's true. Ok, I'll send for a patched file. Thanks. – Cavell Blood Jan 12 '16 at 0:26
  • The patched file fixed this problem. – Cavell Blood Jan 12 '16 at 23:36

This probably isn't the answer you're looking for (it should be honoring your redirect) but if that's the only form being used for registrations, you could set 'activateAccountSuccessPath' => 'volunteer/identity' in your config file.

  • Yes, that's true. It should be honoring the redirect. I can try that for now but I'd rather not hard code this. This should work for now. Thanks! – Cavell Blood Dec 16 '15 at 20:36
  • I have the same issue as OP, and since we work with e-mail address verification, this workaround isn't suitable. It should honor the right settings, indeed. – tom Dec 23 '15 at 10:43
  • @tom: I emailed support@craftcms.com and they sent me a patched file that fixed the issue for now. – Cavell Blood Jan 12 '16 at 23:36
  • @cavellblood Thank you for this heads-up. Very helpful. I will mail them too. – tom Jan 15 '16 at 9:17
