I am not being redirected to the page- path $u. drupal_goto not working. I have tried everything increased te weight of the module,even tried with $_GET['destination'].

    Cleared the Cache? I guess you have written the hook function name correctly. Did you try a fixed URL? like 'user/edit'? Oct 22, 2013 at 9:45

Instead of using drupal_goto(), try passing the path in $edit['redirect'] in hook_user_login as below:

 * Implements hook_user_login().
function hook_user_login(&$edit, $account) {
  // To check if the form is not the user reset form.
  if (!isset($_POST['form_id']) || $_POST['form_id'] != 'user_pass_reset') {
    $GLOBALS['destination'] = 'PATH_YOU_WANT_TO_REDIRECT';
  • Tried with $edit['redirect'] also. did not work. Oct 22, 2013 at 9:51

    @neetumorwani can you once try this: $GLOBALS['destination'] = 'PATH_YOU_WANT_TO_REDIRECT';. Don't forget to clear the cache after appplying the changes Oct 22, 2013 at 9:54
