I have added the login form to a page using drupal_get_form. Now, I would like to redirect the users back to that page after login. Note: I don't want to redirect users that logged in somewhere else (e.g. user/login), and I also don't want to use a contib module for that.

B.T.W Maybe if I'll Ajaxify the login form it will have the same effect?

I'll appericiate any help and/or examples.

You have to add form_alter and add custom #submit handler to user_login form if current_path() is correct for you and set $form_state['redirect'] there.

Check this post Redirect to a custom page after a node has been added or edited.

Also it can be achieved via custom rule, if you don't want to write any custom code.

  • It's not working because I'm using drupal_get_form() to get the form on my theme, and I don't want to use hook_form_alter because it will also redirect from the primary login form.

    You can pass your own custom flag, for example drupal_get_form($form_id, array('use_custom_redirect' => TRUE)) and then use this argument in form_alter - if ($form_state['build_info']['args']['use_custom_redirect']) {...}

You should save the current path and use that current path in the redirect path of the form

$redirect_url = current_path();
$form['#redirect'] = $redirect_url;
