Need help with redirect

Need help with redirect

Hi!

Currently I have a link that redirects the visitor to the order history page if the visitor is logged in. When the visitor is not logged in the link redirects to the log in page. Once they have logged in the conditional statement allows them to access links to view order history, update profile, ect., as a should, with no log in form on the page.

What I need is if the visitor is logged in, the link needs to redirect to the log in page without the log in form - only the options ie view order history, update profile, etc.

As it stands, if the visitor is already logged in, the link is directed to the log in page with the log in form instead of their account access.(local testing)

What do I need to do to change this so that when a logged in visitor selects the Your Account link the will redirect to the log in page with the conditions of log in met?

Thank you!

Should I create a new page with those visitor account access options and use a grant access if logged in to redirect to the new page?

Is this making any sense?

My apology - my verbiage may not be clear.

Thank you!

try adding the following code at line 1 of the login page:

php:
<?php @session_start(); if(isset($_SESSION['UserID']) && $_SESSION['UserID'] != ""$_GET['loggedIn'] = "1"?>

Nope

Jason,

It's not working... I went ahead and uploaded it to the server anyway with the menu link linking to the log in page it. Maybe it would be easier to understand if you can see it in action...

I think it is better to have to log in twice rather than not have a way for the visitor to update their profile, but I would sure like it if they would be sent to their specific options without the need to log in the second time...

If you can think of anything else to solve this, that would be wonderful...


Thanks!

Sorry, I had the wrong session name in my previous reply.

the code should be:

php:
<?php @session_start(); if(isset($_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserID']) && $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserID'] != ""$_GET['loggedIn'] = "1"?>
