Custom Redirect

Hello,

I am attempting to do a custom redirect based on a session variable. I have followed the tutorial here:

showthread.php?t=17723&highlight=redirect

I make it to the redirect.php page but nothing happens. Am I missing something?

This is what my redirect.php page looks like:

<?php
if(isset($_SESSION['type']) && $_SESSION['type'] != "") {
header("Location: ".$_SESSION['type']."php");
}
?>



What am I missing?

Thanks!

Garry

NM... I got it.

You didn't mention that it was necessary for the helper file to be called in the redirect.php file. That did the trick.

It's not so much that the helper needs to be called, that only fixes the problem because it contains code to initialize the session.


if you had just added a line to check the session, it would have fixed the issue without needing to include the helper:

php:
<?php
if(!session_id()) session_start();
if(isset(
$_SESSION['type']) && $_SESSION['type'] != "") {
 
header("Location: ".$_SESSION['type']."php");
}
?>




9 times out of 10 though, this is done on a page that has security assist access restriction applied to it, so the session check is not needed.
