I want to set a flag to link to a node creation page - i.e., when a user clicks on the flag ("Apply for this Job") they should be redirected to a Job Application creation page where they can fill out an application for the job.

So for flag action I selected the "Redirect to URL" action and entered node/add/job-application. But when a user clicks on the flag there's no such redirection, the user is never sent to the node creation page. Am I missing something or just using the wrong method?

  • There is an issue about that on drupal.org for Drupal 6 but it seems that it doesn't work on drupal 7 too. Maybe try to do that with your own module as they said :hook_flag and $_GET['destination'] = 'your/url'

Ok, I myself test this for you, please first install and enable Rule and Rules UI ,after it (I suppose you have a flag with 'myflag') . Go to dmin/config/workflow/rules and Add new rule ,set your name and in React on event in flag group select A node has been flagged, under "myflag" save it ,after it in Actions section choose Add action , in Select the action to add in system group choose Page redirect ,after it set your path want to redirect it in Value. (is better check Force redirect). I hope works for you correctly.

  • Thanks zhilevan, I got it to work. But there is one more thing I had to do to make it work - I had to make the "Link type" a Normal Link. It seems that it does not work with AJAX.

If you jobs is too force I suggest you handle your job with jquery and javascript.

something like this

  document.location.href = "youroptionamlpath";
  • I'm not much of a programmer, and I was hoping there was a simpler way of doing this. I can use node reference, but the reason I was going with the flag module was that I could use the off switch to disable the Apply link and put in a message like "You have already applied".
