When using ‘Devise’ for your authentication mechanism, you may need to redirect to the previous webpage after signing in.
To do this:
class Users::SessionsController < Devise::SessionsController layout 'user' after_filter :store_location def store_location # store last url - this is needed for post-login redirect to whatever the user last visited. return unless request.get? if request.path != "/users/sign_in" && request.path != "/users/sign_up" && request.path != "/users/password/new" && request.path != "/users/password/edit" && request.path != "/users/confirmation" && request.path != "/users/sign_out" && !request.xhr? # don't store ajax calls session[:previous_url] = request.fullpath end end #Take me to the referring page after sign in def after_sign_in_path_for(resource) session[:previous_url] || root_path end end
