not redirect users on login?

Permalink
Is there a way to make the login page send the user back to whichever page on which they clicked the login link?

I have an account set up for a client to edit their website's content (not an admin account) but it redirects them to the dashboard every time they login.

Although they do have dashboard access, what I would really like is, after logging in, they get bounced back to whichever page they were viewing. 90% of the time, they logged in just to edit that particular page.

Example:
1. Go to http://www.theconnotations.com/auditions...
2. Click the "Log in to edit this site" link in the footer
3. User is redirected to login page. User logs in.
4. [desired] User goes back to http://www.theconnotations.com/auditions...
[actual, current behavior] user is redirected to dashboard.

I know you can edit the "Where to send users on login?" attribute from the "Users & Groups >> Login & Registration" panel in the dashboard. Unfortunately, that only allows you to specify a single (fixed) page. I'm looking for a way to bounce the user back to the last page they were viewing.

Thanks!

Hi,

The free log-in block should do it.

And there is a pop-up template to go with it.

Just set it to return user to same page.

Hope that does it for you.
