Redirect page after logging in

Post by CMCDragonkai »

I was curious, but why does phpbb redirect after one logs in? What function does it serve? Why can we just login and not go through a redirect page?

Not sure of the purpose, but it gives an opportunity to impart some info to or give a choice to the user. You can get rid of it - http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p12812644 - Look at the MOD code and I think you will see how ti just do it for the login page, if that's what you want.

Could you elaborate?

Hard to elaborate since it is just a guess. You could use the page to give the user the choice of going to the index page or a specific forum, for example.
