I have confused myself slightly setting up the return path for my safecracker login form for the following site [Click here for link][1]

if you scroll down to the roster section click mel debarge, in the the pop up you will notice a download section, when you click on the press kit button you are redirected to the login page.

When user enter the correct login detail they are able to access a PDF/JPEG which i have uploaded in the Matrix i have set up. The parameters for the matrix are the following {press_material}{press_pdf}{press_material}

In the entry properties for my login form i have the following:

    dynamic_title="[member_first_name] [member_last_name]"

In aim to redirect registered users to the file uploaded in the matrix, However i don't seem to be having any joy. Does anyone know how i can resolve this issue??

do i need to use the embed proporties in order for this to work?


  • Does this work with a hardcoded URL based on what you are trying to accomplish with the tags? – Anna_MediaGirl Mar 3 '13 at 20:06
  • @Anna_MediaGirl i'm trying to work out a url... – NewBoy Mar 4 '13 at 2:26
  • I understand that. I'm asking if you've tried hard coding a URL that should work as a test. – Anna_MediaGirl Mar 4 '13 at 5:58
  • yes. Hard coding the URL, works fine – NewBoy Mar 4 '13 at 15:47
  • Okay. Sounds like something isn't parsing correctly then. Try overriding the return="" parameter inside the safecracker tag using: <input type="hidden" value="{path='{press_material}{press_pdf}{/press_material}/{url_title}" name="return"> OR <input type="hidden" value="/{press_material}{press_pdf}{/press_material}/{url_title}" name="return"> – Anna_MediaGirl Mar 4 '13 at 16:35

The fix for this was twofold:

  1. Needed to add register_member="yes" to the Safecracker Registration tag

  2. {url_title} wasn't being parsed as coded. Changing the tag to {segment_3} got the return path working correctly.
