Redirect user to the previous page after logging in (#1679).

History

#1 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang about 9 years ago

I agree that redirecting to the previous page (if any) would be more convenient.
What do think others ?

#2 Updated by Carl Nygard about 9 years ago

Seeing how I had to login, hit the back button twice, and reload the page, I'd say

+4

+1. I use the restful_authentication plugin on my Rails applications all the time and it includes this feature be default. Having Redmine not have it is a small annoyance. restful_authentication does this by setting session[:return_to] = request.request_uri when the user needs authentication. Then once authentication, it will check the session and redirect to the :return_to uri.

+1 This would be a nice feature for public Redmine projects. Sometimes you don't realize you aren't logged in until you want to comment on an issue.

#6 Updated by James Byrne over 8 years ago

Possible regression.

I note today that when I logged in to Redmin.org that I was redirected to my home page rather than back to the page I was viewing when I decided to log in.
