Hello !

On log in, I want the current page viewed to be "translated" (the user is redirected to the page in his own language/locale).
I already put this in the Page.php :

	$member = Member::currentUser();
		if($member && $member->Locale) {

and when I log in, the menus get translated, but not the content.

So, I got this code on the amazing SSbits site :

And I'm trying to modify it so when I log in, the site refreshes to the same page (ex: /contact), but with my locale defined as the current locale (/contact?locale=en_GB) so I would be redirected to /contact-en-gb.

The last line is what I invented wrote myself :

 /// In LoginLocale.php :
class LoginLocale extends MemberLoginForm {
    public function dologin($data) {
        if( Director::redirected_to() and Member::currentUserID() ) {
			$member = Member::currentUser();
			$member_locale = $member->Locale;
            Director::redirect(Director::baseURL() . Director::get_current_page()->UrlSegment . "?locale=" . $member_locale);

/// And in _config :

	Object::useCustomClass('MemberLoginForm', 'LoginLocale');

I manage to set the locale, but the Current Page Url doesn't show anything -> I get to the homepage.

Can somebody help me with the last line ?

Here's the solution :

For the last line, you can use this (what I managed to write without really knowing what I was doin') :

$params    = Director::urlparams();
Director::redirect(Director::baseURL() . $params['URLSegment'] . "?locale=" . $member_locale);

or this (it's shorter and very simple... that's the bit of code I was searching. Thanks to Zauberfisch on #silverstripe !) :

Director::redirect(Director::get_current_page()->Link() . "?locale=" . $member_locale);
