Display Notifications after front-end login

Recommended Posts

I hope this is the correct place to post this. I currently am building a "dashboard" that displays some stats etc, but also handles login/logout with a form. Currently, when a user uses the form on the homepage, they redirected (if the credentials are correct) to the backend of processwire.

However, I was hoping to direct the user back to the dashboard and display an alert (for now until I get a library to handle this). I got it somewhat working if I dont redirect the user. However, if I refresh the page, the alert still "pops up". Does anyone know of a way to redirect to the home page, but then display an alert?

My Code to login:

<?php
if($input->post->user && $input->post->pass) {
	$user = $sanitizer->username($input->post->user);
    $pass = $input->post->pass; 

    if($session->login($user, $pass)) {
    	// login successful
        $session->redirect($dash); 
    }
}
?>

Hello @louisstephens,

you could use a GET parameter inside your redirect. For example:

<?php
$session->redirect($dash . "?alert=success");

// On your dashboard template file
if ($input->get->alert === "success") {
	// Show your notification
}

If you plan to build a login be sure to use CSRF and maybe honeypot validation:

Regards, Andreas

Thanks  AndZyk . I will definitely give this a shot and see where this takes me. I completely forgot about GET (and I am still learning). Ill let you know how it goes. As for CSRF, that is a great idea. This is largely an internal site, but I will definitely take the precaution.

That worked great @AndZyk! I appreciate the help. Now for a dumb question, once redirected, success="true" (in laments terms), notification displays, is there a way to remove the ?alert=success from the url ? As it stands, I have a script that refreshes the page every so often to get any new changes that might have been made on the site, and currently the alert will just keep posting.

 

There probably a better way to handle the refresh as well like ajax, but I dont quite know how to tackle that. I guess this was just an impromtu way of doing things.

      Hi guys,
      I've always used WP but I want to swtich to PW. I'm not sure ....
      I'd like to know if it's possible to create a website for an online photo contest.
      The participants of the competition could create their own account, in which they upload their photos. The photos uploaded remain visible only to themselves and the judges.
      From their account they can make the "entrance fee" payment.
      The judges of the competition can create their own account... entering they see the photos of the participants and vote photos
      At the main page I imagine the title of the competition, a button to read the regulation, and a button to register.
      The website should be in Italian and English.
      Thank you!!

      Hi Guys
      How can I make a redirect inside the .htaccess to my custom maintenance.html file when any URL of my Website is accessed except the processwire admin (www.example.com/processwire/).
      Because I want that my User's still can access the website when they are loggedin in Processwire.
      When the current url starts with /processwire or if there is a processwire-login-cookie (Is there a cookie when user is logged in Processwire?) available the redirect should not work. Otherwise it should work.
      How can I achieve this?

      I have a demo site which I moved to a new VPS for client testing
      We noticed that leaving a page open and then revisiting the site can result in a 25 second(ish) to load time and will then throw a 500 Error.
      The hosting guys had a look and confirmed that the server is fine but the issue could be related to authentication or sessions.
      We are running Page Protector and ProCache so I wondered if there were any known bugs here and any recommended actions.
      My actual PW log doesn't show anything but the server log has plenty of these

      Hey all,
      I want to customize the mywebsite/processwire/profile page. It's almost all good but I want to get rid of the sections 'Admin Theme' and 'Language' so that the user can just set a new password. (see image)
      Do I have to modify the admin template or how can I do that? Because when I go tree>Admin>Profile there are no fields to add or remove.
      Or where can I find the php file?
      I would appreciate your help.

      Reference: PW 3.0.111 and uikit3 based site using the Regular-Master profile.
      I'm trying to automatically redirect a logged-in user to a custom profile page using $session->redirect() and need to add $user->name to the redirect path.
      All my attempts appear to have failed:
      $session->redirect('/user-profile/')->name; $session->redirect('/user-profile/')->$user->name; $session->redirect('/user-profile/' . get($user->name . '/')); $session->redirect('/user-profile/' & get($user->name)); Can anyone point out where I am going wrong?
