The question was already asked (Possible to redirect elsewhere after saving an entry?) but this was about Craft 2.x.

Up until now I used the following code in my plugin (I took it from one of the comments from the same question):

Craft::$app->getView()->hook('cp.entries.edit', function (array &$context) {
    if (isset ($context['section']['type']) && $context['section']['type'] === 'single')
            $(function () {

The code did the job, but after I updated to, it stopped working, every time after entry was saved the following exception was thrown:

HTTP 400 – Bad Request – yii\web\BadRequestHttpException
Request contained an invalid body param


yii\web\BadRequestHttpException: Request contained an invalid body param in .../vendor/craftcms/cms/src/web/Request.php:651

Is there any chance to make it work again on 3.1.32?

The redirect url always needs to be hashed:


In Twig you can use {{ redirectInput(url) }} which is a shortcut of

<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="{{ url|hash }}">

But if you need the same in a PHP code you can use


based on the code how the Twig filter defined in craftcms/cms/src/web/twig/Extension.php.

  • One problem, though. Now after the value of the <input name='redirect'> is changed, every time I leave the page, I receive This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved.. Is there a way to solve it?

  • Addition to my previous comment: this behavior is observable only for certain entries, but I could not find any system. Two entries have got exactly the same set of fields, but content is different. One is triggering the alert, another don't.

  • The redirect should be a hidden input and the value is always the given url prefixed with a hash when you check the source in a browser. The other half sounds unrelated to your original question, but this is definitely not how the redirection works. I would look for a script or anything else which changes your form data. Check your headers sent to the action.
