I am using PhotoPost v5.0.1 and phpBB 2.0.13; the installation went smoothly and all seems to be working well at first blush but...
My web site TravelPhoto.com (http://www.travelphoto.com
) is first and foremost a place where people can post their travel photos with some forums that will be made available to users as a secondary feature. This seems to be the reverse of how most people use PhotoPost--they seem to use PhotoPost as an adjunct to their forums.
Since photo sharing is the main purpose of the site, the PhotoPost app is at the root URL http://www.travelphoto.com
and the forums are located in a subdirectory http://www.travelphoto.com/forum/
My problem is that I when users are in the PhotoPost app and go to register, they are tossed into the phpBB registration module and when they complete the registration they are dumped into the forum section--which, if they are registering from the main page (PhotoPost) is going to confuse the hell out of them--they have no idea why then suddenly ended up in a discussion forum when they were registering to post photos.
Ideally, I would like users that register from a forum page to return to the forum page--and users who register from a PhotoPost page to return to the PhotoPost main page. (That's how it works when a user logs in AFTER they have registered and that is the most logical way for things to work...)
Can this be done?
If this is NOT possible, a second and equally valid option is to have them return to a neutral page that allows them to click a link to choose what section they want to go (i.e. click here to go to PhotoPost, click here to go to forums).
The third--and least desirable option (but better than just going to the forum index by default)—is to have the registration dump them to the main TravelPhoto.com page (http://www.travelphoto.com/
, which is the PhotoPost app) after they finish the registration.
But HOW can we do this?
