Redirect After Double-Optin Confirmation

If you are using double-optin for your DAP product, then you would normally have entered the text %%ACTIVATION_LINK%% in your email body, which is replaced by a unique confirmation link specific to that user.

Normally, when that activation link is clicked, the user is redirected to your login page configured under Setup > Config > Login URL.

But if you wanted them to be redirected elsewhere to a page of your choice, then in your double-optin email body, where you normally enter %%ACTIVATION_LINK%% , enter this instead:


Where “http://link/to/landing/page/” is the URL where you want them to be redirected to after they click on the double-optin activation link.

Any idea why this redirect method won’t work to redirect to a domain other than the domain DAP is installed on? I get a 403 error if I try to redirect to anywhere other than my domain.

Hi Eric,

Please use relative path in the redirect url instead of full path and it should work.

For ex, instead of http://YOURSITE.com/redirect-here, use just /redirect-here and it should work.
