Hi Everyone

Well I am having a complete nightmare with the Member system and creating a custom login page, who knew it would be nearly impossible to work with and without proper documentation anywhere!

I am simply trying to build a login page for members that have a certain Boolean checked, and then redirect them to a different page. However I am suffering barriers in all directions.

The current ones are:

1. [Strict Notice] Non-static method Controller::redirect() should not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context
2. When clicking the logout button it takes me no a white screen

CustomLogin .php

<?php
class CustomLogin extends MemberLoginForm {

   // this function is overloaded on our sublcass (this) to do something different 
   public function dologin($data) { 
      if($this->performLogin($data)) { 
         if(!$this->redirectByGroup($data)){
            return Controller::redirect("/home");
            //echo 'done'; 
         }
      } else { 
         if($badLoginURL = Session::get("BadLoginURL")) { 
            return Controller::redirect($badLoginURL); 

         } else { 
            return Controller::redirectBack(); 
         } 
      } 
   }
   

   public function redirectByGroup($data) {
      // gets the current member that is logging in. 
      $member = Member::currentUser();
      // gets all the groups. 
      $Groups = DataObject::get("Group"); 
       
      //cycle through each group    
      foreach($Groups as $Group){ 
         //if the member is in the group and that group has GoToAdmin checked 
         if($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->GoToAdmin == 1) 
         {    
            //redirect to the admin page 
            return Controller::redirect('/admin'); 
            return true; 
         } 
         //otherwise if the member is in the group and that group has a page link defined 
         elseif($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->GoToMemberProfile == 1) 
         {    
            Controller::redirect('/members/profile'); 
            return true; 
         } 
          
      } 
      //otherwise if none of the above worked return fase 
      return false; 
             
   } 
                
    
}    
?>

GroupDecorator.php

<?php
class GroupDecorator extends DataExtension {
     
    static $db = array (    
         "GoToAdmin" => "Boolean",
         "GoToMemberProfile" => "Boolean"
    );

    private static $has_one = array(
    );

    function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) { 
        $fields->push(new CheckboxField("GoToAdmin", " Go to Admin area"), "Members"); 
        $fields->push(new CheckboxField("GoToMemberProfile", " Go to Member area"), "Members"); 
    }

}  

_config.php

Object::useCustomClass('MemberLoginForm', 'CustomLogin'); 
//Tells silverstripe to add our extention to the group class 
Object::add_extension('Group', 'GroupDecorator');

MemberLoginPage.php

...
class MemberLoginPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {


	private static $allowed_actions = array (
		"LoginForm"
	);

	function LoginForm() {
        $form = new CustomLogin($this,"LoginForm");
        // print_r($_REQUEST);
        return $form;
    }

}

Any help will be great. I have looked at the SSBits tutorial, I have tried the member profiles extension on GitHub, read hours of documentation and nothing is giving in!

Thanks

Hi Lawrence,

I've not customized it yet - am hoping to reuse the current code as much as possible. However here is a complete working example in a module - it's what I intend to reference when I add it

I Got this working in the end by changing the dologin into a single function, exact same code, just one function, it then didnt throw a wobbly at me about strict notices!

<?php
class CustomLogin extends MemberLoginForm {

   // this function is overloaded on our sublcass (this) to do something different 
   public function dologin($data) { 
      if($this->performLogin($data)) { 
         
         $member = Member::currentUser();
         // gets all the groups. 
         $Groups = DataObject::get("Group"); 
          
         //cycle through each group    
         foreach($Groups as $Group){ 
            //if the member is in the group and that group has GoToAdmin checked 
            if($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->GoToAdmin == 1) 
            {    
               //redirect to the admin page 
               return Controller::redirect('/admin'); 
            } 
            //otherwise if the member is in the group and that group has a page link defined 
            elseif($member->inGroup($Group->ID) && $Group->GoToMemberProfile == 1) 
            {    
               return Controller::redirect('/members/profile'); 
            } 
             
         } 

         return Controller::redirect("/home");

      } else { 
         if($badLoginURL = Session::get("BadLoginURL")) { 
            return Controller::redirect($badLoginURL); 

         } else { 
            return Controller::redirectBack(); 
         } 
      } 
   }               
    
}    
?>

Not this why SS threw a strict notice before tho?

As the strict notice says, Controller::redirect() is not static so you cannot call it like that, You'll need to do Controller::curr()->redirect($badLoginURL);

Sorry Wiilr, I dont follow - is there anywhere I can read up on "static" to get an understanding of it?
