N00B Drupal User - User Password Reset

Hey all -

I have the basic Drupal e-mail setup working for a user password recovery, however, the redirect to

/user/#/edit

doesn't seem to be working.  I get that it has to be a Trigger or something, but I just don't understand how to set this up.  Any help would be appreciated.

Well, something unique about your site must be causing a problem (likely a contributed module, or htaccess). How old / large is this site? Do you have any funny contributed modules like Drupal FrontPage, Login Destination, Page Redirects, etc.

Maybe try turning off Clean URLS and seeing if the problem persists?

I don't really get what's going wrong. Could it just be that you need clean URL's setup? http://drupal.org/node/15365

What do you mean the redirect to /user/#/edit doesn't seem to be working? Are you getting a 404, or is it not redirecting at all.

It's redirecting to the home page...

I'm using the default recovery setup, so what's sent in the e-mail is

/user/reset/59/1284571152/656109f92d6637c5496a6ef5122037e0

Which resets the password.  I'm supposed to get redirected to the following page:

/user/59/edit

After I reset, but I just get redirected to the home page, with no way to change my password.

Thanks Thomas,
Stu

I would try running it with Firebug open (http://getfirebug.com/) and the NET panel open. It will allow you to look at the redirects and see exactly what is going on. Firebug is awesome for many other uses as well.

I'm sure this is just a site config issue...  I get a 302 Moved Temporarily response, then redirect to the home page.

How is that url supposed to be setup... Or is that a default?

That URL looks pretty standard, here's part of a URL one my Drupal sites spit out, user/reset/8/1284575484/b6c2b188fd19a922 ....

I would check your .htaccess file in your Drupal site root for any odd rules. Particularly maybe one redirecting from non www to the ww version or vice versa.

Nothing there... I did notice a redirect script within the site, but after resetting to defaults it still doesn;t work...

Clean URLs aren't implemented, and there's not any other modules that I think can be causing this... I checked the permissions, thinking that might be the issue as well.. no dice...

Argh.

I figured it out... finally... It was a permissions issue.  Anonymous User has to be checked under user profile administration.

I wanted to give Thomas some of the points for this question, since he did offer a lot of great advice.

Thomas has a killer knowledge of Drupal, and though he couldn't pin down my particular problem, there's no way he could have known about our particular setup, etc.

Dupal is a ridiculous beast... Glad thomas can help slay some of the dragons out there.

Thanks for you very kind compliments, Drupal is a rather ridiculous beast, an awesome ridiculous beast, that is.

Your weapons are very important, Firebug, server logs, Drupal's logs, and especially the contributed module's issue queues are extremely helpful.
