Topic-icon Returning User Redirect Not Hitting Expected Page

Active Subscriptions:

None
I've added a new task to the Jomsocial Profile Controller. This task can be viewed by going to (index.php?option=com_community&view=profile&task=dashboard). I would like to have JLinked redirect to this task after login so I created an external link menu item to it. However when I login I get (/component/community/dashboard) instead of (index.php?option=com_community&view=profile&task=dashboard) and a 500 error. What would cause this/what is the best way to fix this?

Joe,
I've added a tracker issue for us to investigate External URLs more and see what's going wrong. Something you can do in the meantime is edit the /components/com_jlinked/models/loginregister.php file. At line 69, you'll see the getLoginRedirect function. There are a few if statements in there. At the end of the block you want, simply change the $redirect variable to:
$redirect = JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_community&view=profile&task=dashboard', false);
The first block is for new user registrations. The second block is for logins. The third block is if you have JLinked configured to leave the user on the same page they logged in on (not what you have, it seems).

Again, we'll try to figure out what's going wrong for the next release, but hard-coding what you want for now is probably the best choice.

Thanks,
Alex

Sounds good. Again, it's a task for us to look into, but I think you're covered for now!

Thanks,
