Login from any page and redirecting back there

I would like to be able to login to my account from any page and then I would like to be redirected back onto the same page.
Now I have to click on the login link to open another page, login into my account and then forum redirect me back on index, so I have to find again topic/post where I was before.
I would prefer if there are on every page the same fields for login as on index page or if those fields shows up when I move mouse over login link and if I stay on the same page after login.

if I understand you want to return the page you were after login?

I think good idea but very difficult to be added in phpbb.

Yes, and I would like to have the login fields on every page.

Easily done with this MOD. I agree this part of your idea would be a useful feature.

I know I can find login link on every page, but I would like to have on every page login fields and after login I would like to stay on that page.
Would be better if I change the idea name to: "Login fields on every page and after login redirecting back"?

Often members are on one particular page, they Login, then get redirected to the Forum's index - as opposed being redirected back to where they were. This isn't user friendly... The respective member should be taken back to where they were when they initially clicked the Login link.

I currently use the linked to Mod by t_backoff and it works great. However, this feature needs to be added to the core.

I agree - it should be in the core...

I'm using the identity of users for our website, alongside the forum. So this redirect should be also available outside the forum.

Imagine a another page with a built in login form, users should be able to go back to the page, outside the forum.

And yeah, should be in the core.

I have found the login function to be an irritating feature in phpBB. If I find a post somewhere on a phpBB forum and want to login to comment, I'm sent back to the home page. I have since learned to login up front otherwise I have to Ctril-C the link, Login and then paste the link back in the browser which is not very user friendly.

Just tested it on a actual installation of mine - when pressing reply as a guest I'm forced to the login-Screen (as expected because guest posting is disabled), after login the reply editor opened in the selected topic ...

Sure, when you use the login on the top or bottom of the page, you are send to the index page - so simply don't use it when replying ;)

I wonder how many phpbb users are ever aware of this issue. I , like many many phpbb users, am always logged in automatically when accessing any phpbb board that I am a memeber of.
if you click the remember me box when you log in then this issue will never come up because you will always be logged in each time you visit that board in the future.

The present idea should be finalized for 3.3.0-a1 (it's WIP)

That won't work for PHP < 7.0 but it's a good idea. Maybe I can propose a fix if I understand Github correctly :P
