View Full Version : [RELEASE-addon] Homepage Login on Non-VB Page -- Addon

18 Oct 2001, 03:16
Here's a little mini-addon to a very popular hack by RobAC. You can view the original hack here. (http://vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=23524)

When Rob released this hack, it would log you in, and bring you to the Forums home. This was very fustrating to some, who put the logon on their mainpage, and it'd bring them to the Forums Home, and not back to where they logged in.

I decided to do it myself, and found it pretty simple.

What this little addon will do, is when you login, it'll bring you back to the page you were previously on when you logged on. So, lets say you had Rob's login code on your mainpage, and you logged in, it'd bring you back to your mainpage saying "Welcome Back, Username". This will work with any page since it uses "$HTTP_REFERER". "$HTTP_REFERER" is just a little code that tracks the last page you've been on.

To install this, you'll need to change one line in your member.php.


and replace it with

Once you do this, this should bring you back to the page you were on while logging in.:)

Thanks Rob for the great hack!:D

Does this work for you?

Thanks, I'll try it! :)

Btw, both these hacks would work on say, a block on PHPnuke?

No problem. I'm glad it's helped out. I apologize for not updating it with more features, but I just haven't had the time. I've got a few major projects I'm trying to roll out on my own site and haven't been here in the support forums much.

Looks like a cool feature! :)

I'm looking for this for quite sometime now. :)

18 Oct 2001, 20:25
Hehe. No problem. Rob did all the work, I just edited a very little part of it.

Now that we have the login return to the referrer page can you do one for logout too? :)

It would be a complete package then won't you think instead of going to the forum cookies clear page which is irritating.

Here you go certify.

The following code will return you to your previous page when you log out of your Forums.

Open the template "error_cookieclear" and change this
All cookies cleared! Click <a href="index.php?s=$session[sessionhash]">here</a> to return to the forums index.
to this

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;URL=$HTTP_REFERER">
All cookies cleared! You are being returned to your previous page.

This should work. Tell me if it doesn't. :)

Thanks, I'll try it now! :)

Is it working correctly? I only tested it a bit on my forums, but it seems to be working fine.

26 Oct 2001, 08:46

And you helped me too badmeetsevil! Thanks for a great thread.

Everything works except the redirect after you log in... It wants to take me to the path:


It's like it's repeating a portion of the URL and then at the end there are even two "s" params being passed. Can anyone give me a hint where to look?

I have already clicked install!!!

Sorry to bother everyone - I want to get this done tonight if possible...

Any help on this will get me to move forward with completing my site...please ;)

I also get this error because for some reason the $referrer is members.php

Anybody know how to solve this problem?

03 May 2003, 04:06
go to the url, replace '.com' with '.org'

all hacks used to be there, but they just moved everything here, urls and all.

13 Jun 2003, 02:47
I am getting the following error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/virtual/site3/fst/var/www/html/webwelcome.php on line 24

Can't get it to come up.

I had no problems with this. Worked like a charm on a hack 2.3.0 Thanks for the work guys, this is the perfect addittion to the hack!

18 Jun 2003, 22:51
good work ;)

I can't get to the orginal hack on vB.com! Yes I'm logged in, yes, I have member support and a license number with password. It still won't let me see the thread.

Does anyone have the orginal hack or another place I can get it from?

Sorry, should read above before I post! My bad.
