Continue to page after login help

Recommended Posts

Hi I want users to be able to click a link to a page that is restricted and once they login they are still taken to that page without having to navigate to it.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Are you using sessions?

I'm assuming if you are logging in users you have some sort of session running?

session_start();

You could make a hidden input box that stores the last page.
say this is your login page:
[code]
<input type="submit" value="{$_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']}" name="refer">
[/code]

then on your check page, after they login re-direct them.
header("Location: ".$_POST['refer']);

but the suggestions above are as good if not better then the above. but its your choice.
