#8868 closed defect (fixed)

After login trac always redirects to default page loosing initial target

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: techtonik
Priority: normal Component: NoAnonymousPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords: redirect
Cc: s.major@… Trac Release: 0.12


If user access a specified target, e.g. a wiki page or certain ticket and has to log-in in between, the target gets lost and user is redirected to the default page.
It is similar to a problem described here for PermRedirectPlugin. Actually the solution proposed there (attachment:ticket:2210:PermRedirect-urlfix.2.diff) by simply replacing



ref_url = req.base_url + req.path_info
if(req.query_string): ref_url = ref_url + "?" + req.query_string
login_url = req.href.login(referer=ref_url)

also works for the NoAnonymousPlugin

You might get an infinite loop if redirected to logout action.

Replying to techtonik:
But it seems to happen only if you use the browser history. Usually I always land at the last visited place after relogin (provided the tab reminded open). Still you could check for referer ending with "logout" and replace with the base url.
