I'm writing a module that redirects the user on login and am having trouble getting anything to work. Here is what I tried within hook_user_login:

submission.info

name = Submission
description = Handles Redirect to node/add/page on Login 
core = 7.x

submission.module

function submission_user_login(&$edit, $account) {
  //$_REQUEST['destination'] = 'node/add/page';
  //$GLOBALS['destination'] = 'node/add/page';
  //$edit['redirect'] = 'node/add/page';
  drupal_goto('node/add/page');
}
8

Try to change drupal_goto with $_GET['destination'], e.g.:

function submission_user_login(&$edit, $account) {

   // Redirect user to to desired location.
   $_GET['destination'] = 'node/add/page';
}

Hope this will work.

  • this works. but i had to remove the two single quotes. – Emanegux Mar 19 '14 at 6:09
  • @Rupesh : Thanks to edit the answer, it was typo I guess. Emanegux glad that could help you. – CodeSurfer Mar 19 '14 at 6:50

You can use Login Destination module to redirect user after login. This module have many customization for redirecton of user. For more info go through the documentation of module.

  • As you can see in the question, I've already tried this. Please edit the question if this is not clear. – Emanegux Mar 19 '14 at 6:03

You can use Rules module to do this very easily..

The Rules module allows site administrators to define conditionally executed actions based on occurring events (known as reactive or ECA rules).

OR

You can use below code to redirect inside hook_user_login implementation ..

function YOURMODULENAME_user_login(&$edit, $account)  {
  $GLOBALS['destination'] = 'node/add/page';
}

You also need to implement hook_drupal_goto_alter to perform redirect

/**
 * Implements hook_drupal_goto_alter
 */
function YOURMODULENAME_drupal_goto_alter(&$path, &$options, &$http_response_code) {
  // Note that this functionality cannot be backported do 6.x as Drupal 6 does
  // not call drupal_alter for drupal_goto.

  // This actually may be used also by templates.
  if (isset($GLOBALS['destination'])) {
    $destination = $GLOBALS['destination'];

    // alter drupal_goto
    if (is_array($destination)) {
      $path = $destination[0];
      $options = array();
      if (count($destination) > 1) {
        $options = $destination[1];
      }
    }
    else {
      $path = $destination;
    }
  }
}
  • drupal_goto also does not work, even with a fresh d7 installation, and I do not want to rely on admin site configuration through contributed modules until I have exhausted all my options within the core APIs. – Emanegux Mar 19 '14 at 4:51
  • Did you clear your cache after code implementation ? Can you make sure your hook is firing using drupal_set_message("Hello"); inside your function ? – Anil Sagar Mar 19 '14 at 5:03
  • Yes, my cache was cleared after implementing drupal_goto('node/add/page'); and it still does not work. – Emanegux Mar 19 '14 at 5:06
  • Do you see drupal_set_message("Hello"); getting triggered and message "Hello" has been displayed in screen when logged in ? Is your custom module enabled ? – Anil Sagar Mar 19 '14 at 5:08
  • yes, I have tested the hook before posting this question. the issue this concerns is redirect not working within a custom module on fresh install. – Emanegux Mar 19 '14 at 5:12
