I created a rule to redirect users to the front page after they login. It works fine

The problem is when a user uses the link received on his email to choose a new password, or after clicking on the link to validate their signup, they're also forced redirected to the front page instead of heading to their user page to choose a password (in the case of a forgotten password) or finish their profile setup (after clicking on the link to validate their registration)

Any ideas on how to fix this ?

1st method:

I believe there is a module called Login toboggan which will allow you to do exactly what you want.

From the module page:

The LoginToboggan module offers several modifications of the Drupal login system in an external module by offering the following features and usability improvements:

Allow users to login using either their username OR their e-mail address.

Allow users to login immediately.

Provide a login form on Access Denied pages for non-logged-in (anonymous) users.

The other brings the user to a separate page, but returns the user to their original page upon login.

Optionally redirect the user to a specific page when using the 'immediate login' feature.

Optionally redirect the user to a specific page upon validation of their e-mail address.

Optionally display a user message indicating a successful login. ...

2nd method: I believe when someone request a password, the format of the link will be similar to this one:


If so, you can create a rule to redirect the user upon login to a specific page. However, add one condition which will be:

Data comparison: the link should not contain the word reset
