How to sign in and stay on the same discussion page.

I use the code below on the menu navigation buttons for sign-in/sign-out and register link on both the desktop and mobile theme.
But members get redirected to the homepage (recent discussion page) after signing in instead of staying on the same discussion page after signing in. Forum is built on version 2.1.11
Please what is the right code to use to achieve this?

{signinout_link} {if !$User.SignedIn} <li><a href="{link path="entry/register?Target=discussion"}">Register</a></li> {/if}

    for SIGN IN with a specific target link - this worked for me, if it doesn't work for you someone might have a different answer.

    based on your code with a tweak....

       {if $User.SignedIn}
       {if !$User.SignedIn}
       <li><a href="{link path="entry/signin?Target="}{$Path}">Sign In</a></li>

    or you could use an else if you want.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    @peregrine, thank you. It worked.
    Please is it possible to add a code to make the sign-in page to pop-out when sign-in link is clicked on?

    You can add the class Popup

    <a class="Popup" href="{link path="entry/register?Target=discussion"}">Register</a>
