#1053 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Logging in on any profile page should route to the logged in user, not the previously logged in user

Milestone: 1.1 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords: log-in, login, user profile


Not sure whether to log this as a defect or an enhancement, but I would call it a defect, so I'm logging it as such.

When a user is logged in and goes to their profile page, if they log out (they have to log out using the userbar link, not the navigation/utility logout at the top of the page), it logs them out --> good enough so far.

But if another user logs in from this *very* page, it will log them in, but instead of the new users profile showing up, it stays on the old users profile page. Technically, this is understandable behaviour -- that's the same page we logged in from. But from a user's POV, that could be confusing. I would have the login in drive them either to their own profile or the home page.

(But only if they're on someone else's profile page...)

...of course, rerouting is a functionality question, but I found it very confusing (and thought it was a bug) when I was on the old user's profile landing page when i logged in as a different user...

Does the user bar (part that says 'ME') show the logged in user?

The way I see it, the login is just dumping you where you were before (you logged in) which happens to be another user's profile.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The userbar says "me" and has the logged in user's avatar and nav options. I don't really think this is a big issue. I'll reassess if this becomes an issue for more people.
