    Title:
    PTA with MYSEC_EXT_LOGIN_URL
    Content:
    I have updated our MYSEC_EXT_LOGIN_URL to direct the users to the sign into our site. I noticed as I was looking at Snapfish's implementation that they have the page the user is going to in the url ex: http://www.snapfish.com/login/pns/rightnowloginsubmit/urltogoback=ask. I was wondering what I needed to put in the MYSEC_EXT_LOGIN_URL in order for the page to be displayed.

    Ok, this fix is scheduled to be include in August '08 Service Pack 5, which hasn't gone out yet. This problem will be fixed if you upgrade though.

      The next page parameter will automatically be appened onto the end of the MYSEC_EXT_LOGIN_URL before redirecting when a user attempts to access a page which requires login. The parameter is added in query string format as &p_next_page=value. There isn't any extra work needed to have that information passed back to you.

       

      So, for example, if the value of the MYSEC_EXT_LOGIN_URL config was www.mysite.com/loginForm.php, then when the user clicked on the ask a question page, they would be redirected to www.mysite.com/loginForm.php?p_next_page=ask

      ok maybe our PTA isn't completely set up or something because I'm not seeing the ?p_next_page attached to my url

      There was a bug on this in earlier releases, what version are you currently running?
    • ebingham
      Aug 08 and we're planning up updating to new release as soon as we get the approval.

      I had an additional question about this.  Is it possible to have the url thats attached be &p_next_page instead of ?p_next_page

       

      so like 

      &p_next_page=account/overview

      or

      ?&p_next_page=account/overview

      or

      &?p_next_page=account/overview
