Node number at first publishing ?

Node number at first publishing ?

Tuesday 28 February 2006 10:00:26 am - 10 replies


I would like to make a redirect after a publishing. The redirect must be on the content I've just created. In order to do that, I would like to use the RedirectURI hidden input but, I don't know what to put as value because I can't access to node number or url alias. This is a bit normal because the content I'm creating is not registred as a node in ezpublish.

My question is :

How can I redirect to the content I've juste created ?

I needed to accomplish this too, but didn't succeed by using existing functionality.

I made my own module which redirects to the main node of an object, by specifying the object id as a parameter in the URL. I've uploaded my extension to pubsvn, you can check it out from

Installation and use:

- enable the extension
- give your users access to the redirect module (assign them a role with a policy for function redirect of module redirect)
- you can use /redirect/mainnode/<i>yourobjectid</i> in the RedirectURIAfterPublish hidden input field.
- custom view parameters are passed by in the URL, so you can use /redirect/mainnode/<i>yourobjectid</i>/(customkey)/customvalue.

The extension was created in April 2005, and hasn't been tested on more recent releases of eZ publish. Feel free to try it, I hope it solves your problem.

Kristof did you think about making a package and put it into Contrib section? Probably more users will need something similar, and not all users browsing pubsvn, now it is a bit hidden.

Hi Lukasz

Adding the extension to pubsvn was the quickest way to get it to Maxime. I will make a package and add it to the contributions at as soon as I have some more time. I know I should do this for all my extensions on pubsvn...

The extension is working with ezpublish v 3.7.3

Still works like a charm in ez 3.10. Thanks for the great contrib.

hmm, i don't understand all this..isn't this extension used to redirect to the main node of a not yet existing object? in that case, where do i get the object id from??
should i use the powercontent extension?

Not yet published object (so it doesn't have a node id yet).
Typically used from edit templates if you want to redirect to the node after the user publishes the object, indirectly via this extension.
