Drupal node creation - back to origin after creation



Hi All,

I have organic groups setup and within those group users are allowed to post certain content. What I woulkd like to do is, when you create a node inside an organic group, it automatically defaults back to frontpage of the group, or the same page that I used to create the node.

At present it defaults to the node view page.I assume there must be a way to add some kind of code so that after the node creation it defauls back to its origin. I.E. the page from where the node was created from.

thanks :)
UPDATE: Got the below, but not entirly sure how to ensure that it redirects back to the GROUP node, from where it was created,

<?php 

/**
* Grabs current node ID
*/

$node_nid = nid; 

/**
* Implements hook_form_alter().
*/
  function mod_form_alter(&$form, $form_state) {
  $form['buttons']['submit']['#submit'][] = 'mod_form_finish_redirect';
  unset($form['buttons']['preview']);
}

/**
 * Custom submit handler. Overwrites the form redirection variable.
 */

function mod_form_finish_redirect($form, &$form_state) {
  $form_state['redirect'] = '/content/<?php print $node_nid; ?>';
}
?>

Well, you have a right approach to set redirect in form_finish.
But it just isn't right.

$form_state['redirect'] = '/path/to/group/page';

or just put this after data processing

drupal_goto('/path/to/group/page');

The point is '/path/to/group/page' should point to node's parent group, not the currend node that recently created.

Eg: if your path is /content/#group_id, where #group_id is the value of the group, and it is stored on the form, then the code might be something like this
$form_state['redirect'] = '/content/'. $form['group_id'];

btw, there're 2 points in your code that never work:
1. $form_state['redirect'] = '/content/<?php print $node_nid; ?>'; --> no, you will not have $node_id value.
It must be like this: $form_state['redirect'] = '/content/'. $node_nid;
2. $node_nid is defined outside of mod_form_finish_redirect(), so if you really want to call it directly, then you have to declare global $node_nid
function mod_form_finish_redirect($form, &$form_state) {
      global $node_nid;
