Redirect After Security LogIn not working

Redirect After Security LogIn not working

I have set up a page where users can login and then be redirected to their school yearbook as a product. I have it setting a session variable "school_PID" but it doesn't work properly. It redirects to Products_Detail.php?ProductID= the first time because the session variable is not set. If you go back and login again then the session variable is set and it redirects properly. I checked the code and the session variable is set right before the redirect so I don't know why it's not functioning properly. I've attached the file, please take a look and see if you can see what's wrong. Thanks for your time.

thats not quite how the code works. That cosde is passing in variables to perform the authentication. The athentication happens inside of the $WA_Auth_Parameter function, you cant pass the $_SESSION['school_PID'] into the function, because it hasn't been set yet.
Try this instead, set the redirect for the authenticate user behavior to just go to Products_Detail.php, then add the following code at line 1:
<?php
if(!session_id()) session_start();
if((!isset($_GET['ProductID']) || $_GET['ProductID'] == "") && (isset($_SESSION['school_PID']))) {
$_GET['ProductID'] = $_SESSION['school_PID']
}
?>[/php]

Getting PHP error

I keep getting this error for the last "}".

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/content/50/7015650/html/Products_Detail.php on line 6

I've attached the Products_detail.php page.

ooops, forgot the last semi colon, change:
$_GET['ProductID'] = $_SESSION['school_PID']

to:
$_GET['ProductID'] = $_SESSION['school_PID'];

There's no error, but it doesn't pick up the session variable. It just goes to Products_detail.php with no extension for the product ID.

does it show the correct record though?


it wont show the id in the query string, but it should be setting it correctly behind the scenes.

You're right, it is working. I had it pulling the wrong ID from the database so the product was showing up wrong. Thanks for the help
