ResturnURL will not change from http://default/forum/

edited November 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I recently installed Vanilla 1.0.1 for the first time. All went well except no matter what is set in settings.php the 'Sign In' link in the top right always has ReturnURL set to http://default/forum/*. Any idea why this is happening? Do I have to find the code responsible and hard code a hack to fix it?

    Can I take a guess you're running on IIS on the default website? If so that might be your problem. In any case if you open up appg/settings.php there should be a configuration line called something like SAFE_REDIRECT_URI, copy that line into conf/settings.php and change it to the proper url.

    i've got a major problem with the returnurl aswell ... working on this board: is a domain redirect to ... but as you can see i get a 500 internal server error... anyone knows how to fix it?

    That's a weird one, paraphrase. It seems like your server doesn't like the http:// after the ? in the querystring. I'd guess that it's some kind of server setting that needs to be changed, but I can't say for sure. It depends on what type of web server you're using, I guess.

    Yeah it really is weird, i'm on apache 2.0 linux server ... i don't manage my own config... so i can't change the server settings... is there a dirty way to bypass this error, like strip the http:// from the forward urls or so?

    Nice design (style) guys. Very efficient use of screen real estate.
