In login.php, change the redirect() function.

I dont see a redirect() function all I see is this

$redirect = ( !empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['redirect']) ) ? $HTTP_POST_VARS['redirect'] : "";
$redirect = str_replace("?", "&", $redirect);

is that it?

Find these in your login.php

redirect(append_sid("index.$phpEx", true));

And just change the index to where ever you want it to go.

...the easiest fix would be just change what you link to...change... ...to... ...to redirect to the main site...or... ...to redirect to their profile. Where are you linking from?

...that's because there's at least 2 occurrences of that line...change both or leave them alone & do what's in this post.

If you made the above change it might not matter but...

See if you're linking from the home page & you want it to come back to the home page..then open your home page...

Find...(or something close to...it's the link you click on to login)...
  • <a href=/phpbb/login.php>
Replace With...(if your link is really different from this just change the value of href & leave the rest of the tag alone)...
  • <a href=/phpbb/login.php?redirect=/>
...that takes you to your home page...well the root web dir anyway...or...
  • <a href=/phpbb/login.php?redirect=profile.php?mode=editprofile>
...or...
  • <a href=/phpbb/login.php?redirect=profile.php%26mode=editprofile>
...both take you to the profile but one might not work.
