Login Destination project page.

What is the Login destination module?

The login destination module provides a way to customize the destination that the user is redirected to after login

What features does the Login Destination module offer?

The Login destination module provides very nice features including:

Force Files to Download Instead of Showing Up in the Browser

Usually when a user goes to a file URL, the file will show in the browser if the browser supports it. Image files like png, gif, jpg almost always show in the browser. Archive files like zip, tar, and gzip almost are always downloaded. Some file types show up in some browsers but not others, svg files will display in Firefox and Safari, but not Internet Explorer 7. Internet Explorer will usually try to show Microsoft Word files (doc and docx) in the browser, while most other browsers will download it.

To add consistency or to force certain files to download, you can fix this by simply adding an .htaccess file to the files directory. Note this only works with Public downloads and an Apache web server.

Set up a Specific Files to Download

  1. First, setup your file field so that it saves into a separate directory. This will make it so that you will only force certain files to download and not affect the rest of the files on your Drupal site. Visit Administer -> Content management -> Content types (admin/content/types). Click "Manage fields" on the type that you want files to be forced to be downloaded. Add or edit a file field, under the "Path settings" fieldset, set a path for your files to be uploaded.

Drupal.org Node Type (for tracking purposes)

This content type makes an issue similar to the ones on drupal.org.

Required modules:
- Date
- Link

***Link to content type.***

*This is a really long content type, so I had to post it elsewhere.

Shared Content Type Repository

This is a launchpad for CCK content type templates.

To add one of these content types to your Drupal site, make sure you have the required modules installed, then copy and paste the code into /admin/content/types/import

To share one of your content types with other Drupal site builders, go to /admin/content/types/export and copy the code to a child page of this book. Please be sure to include any additional modules you used and put the code in < code > & < /code > tags.

Modules for localization and internationalization (Drupal 7 and earlier)

Several modules exist that extend the multilingual capabilities of your site. Apart from the modules documented here, you can browse the multilingual section of the modules list to see all projects, sorted by popularity. You may want to additionally filter by version to see, for example, only modules compatible for the latest Drupal version.
