Redirect loop when changing locales

I seem to have changed my locale setting here by accident. When trying to set it back, I got a "The page isn't redirecting properly" error.

Based on the code of the plugin, I would say it tries to redirect the user to the HTTP_REFERER

        $successRedirect = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
        $target = gdn::request()->get('Target');
        if ($target) {
           $successRedirect = $target;
        // Back from whence we came.

But looking at the request, the REFERER is "https://vanillaforums.org/profile/setlocale/en/MyTransientKey" and that's why the request loops endlessly.


  • should use Target not HTTP_REFERER which can be set to anything.

    grep is your friend.
