function campaign_node_insert($node)
    global $user;
    global $base_url;




                My code is right here !




My error Message is as belowed :

You can't use drupal_goto() in hook_node_insert() and other node_hooks too. The reason is that there is a queue of hooks that are executed on node insert and if you run drupal_goto() in some hook - all other hooks which goes after will not execute!

If you need redirect user after node insert to some url - implement hook_form_alter for node_form and add new submit callback $form['actions']['submit']['#submit'][] = 'my_module_submit_callback'. In this callback you will get $form_state with all $node fields and you can perform you redirect by specifying $form['#redirect'] = 'some/url'.

  • oh~i see, thank you very much! i almost make a big mistake!

  • Another point is that, even if it would work, it would also be executed for nodes that are created through other means than the UI. For example a migration, feeds or some other background process.

  • Hello,i use $form['actions']['submit']['#submit'][]=campaign_add_record_callback; and create function campaign_add_record_callback doesn't work. :( the error message shows that "campaign_add_record_callback " is an undefined constant

  • Cobenash, you have forgotten quotes around function name, try $form['actions']['submit']['#submit'][]='campaign_add_record_callback'; Jul 21, 2012 at 10:48

Eugene is correct, although for D7 your submit handler should contain $form_state['redirect'] = 'some/url'.

You can look at the node_form_submit() function to see how Drupal core handles this.
