I want redirect users after login Current link in joomla 2.5 custom component I use this code but after login i have error 500

          $user =& JFactory::getUser();
          $mainframe  = JFactory::getApplication();
            if($user->id == 0){
                $uri =& JFactory::getURI();
                $url = base64_encode($uri->toString());

how can do it?

$url = base64_encode(JUri::current());
$returnurl = JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_users&view=login&return='.$url, false); //false will make the URL non-xhtml
$mainframe->redirect($returnurl,JText::_('Please Login'));

  • Try turning off SEF and see if it works. Do you have a 3rd party SEF extension installed?

  • You would need to do some debugging then. There's nothing wrong with the above code. Try outputting JUri::current(), $url, and $returnurl variables to make sure they're correct.
