#2783 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Friend request screen when not logged in redirects to root domain

Reported by: r-a-y's profile r-a-y Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords: needs-patch


If you get a friend request, you get an email notification asking you to check your friend requests screen.

If you click on the link in the email and you're not logged in, you get redirected to the BP root domain with no further instruction as to what to do. This is a usability bug similar to #2104.

This is true of every URL that requires logging in to see.

I have in mind a proper fix, but it involves rewriting a lot of stuff and thus won't be a candidate for 1.3. Does anyone have any ideas for a stopgap?

#2 @r-a-y

A simple solution could be changing the email saying you need to be logged in to view the appropriate content.

Link to wp-login.php with a redirect to the URL in question.

#3 @boonebgorges

If the URL in the email always goes to wp-login.php with a redirect, then people who are logged in will be logged out and forced to log in again every time they click an email link. Not sure if that's a prevalent situation, but if so it could be annoying.

#4 @r-a-y

If you're logged in and you hit wp-login.php?redirect_to=, you'll simply get redirected to the page in question.
