Security Assist Login Success ReDirect

Security Assist Login Success ReDirect

We have ran the Security Assist "Create Security Pages" wizard and have a question. Where or how do we select a page to direct to on a successful login? If I "register" and then proceed to login, how do I A. Show that my login was successful and B. How do I choose the page that I want the successful login to go to.

Ideally, when someone tries to go to e.g. shop.php they should be prompted to either register or login. Upon a successful registration and or login, they should be then sent back to the shop.php page to continue.

Any direction is very appreciated!

you can set the success redirect by editing the Authenticate user behavior on the login page.

In the Authenticate user behavior, there is a setting for the success and failure redirect.

There is also a setting for Go To Previous URL (if it exists). If you check this option, you can pass the previous page name as a URL variable in the link to the login page to have that page used as a the success redirect.

to do that, set the login link to use this code:

<a href="login.php?accesscheck=<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">Log In</a>

This did not work for me..... can you help debug?

I edited the Authenticate user behavior and checked the gotoPreviousURL. On my page with the login link I used the code above. When I click the link it takes me to the Login page. After successful login it stays on the login page.

$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $users,
"database" => $database_users,
"tableName" => "userdata",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"username".$WA_Auth_Separator."pass"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".((isset($_POST["username"]))?$_POST["username"]:"") ."".$WA_Auth_Separator."".((isset($_POST["userpassword"]))?$_POST["userpassword"]:"") .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"text".$WA_Auth_Separator."text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"id"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"User_ID"),
"successRedirect" => "",
"failRedirect" => "userdata_EmailPW.php",
"gotoPreviousURL" => TRUE,
"keepQueryString" => TRUE


Link code on page:

<td align="left" valign="top"><?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to userdata")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
$<?php echo $row_WADAcatalog['Price']; ?> (USD)
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<?php if(!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to userdata")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<span style="color: #852708"> <a href="userdata_LogIn.php?<?php (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">Log In</a> to See Current Prices </span>
<?php } // End Show Region ?></td>


THE REDIRECT DOES WORK ON MY CART PAGE takes you back there after you've logged in. Just not on the search results page.

the code for the link is not correct, it is missing the name of the access check url variable.

this code:

<a href="userdata_LogIn.php?<?php (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">

should be:

<a href="userdata_LogIn.php?accesscheck=<?php (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">
