Always redirect to loginpage > not working in Chrome
Hi there, In my app I need anonymous access, because I want a forgot-password functionality, e-maillinkvalidation and that kind of stuff. However, I'd like to keep the mechanism that you always get the login presented when you access the root-url of the application (the forgot pwd is accessible using deeplinks). I tried to get this behavior working with the URL-Redirector widget:  I have styled login.html (and am planning to use it now)  my anonymous userrole (via alternative homepages per userrole) goes to a form where (with the URL-Redirector) the user is redirected to login.html  This way all users first see the login.html........except for the users using Chrome.For some strange reason, the redirect isn't executed, and i'm stuck on the anonymous (empty) page My question: Is there another (better) way to achieve what I want? A few remarks/questions: I noticed that Chrome does redirect, if I change the openform action of the microflow (that is set in alternative navigation for userrole anonymous). If I set it to "as popup", chrome DOES redirect... But that's ugly! Reason: you'll first see the popup and then get redirected... Is there a way to redirect this way and NOT need to create an object (the URL Redirector gives errors if not put in a dataview or templategrid). Actually I don't want to redirect... I just want the anonymous page accessible exclusively via deeplinks... Not defining it in my navigation gives read-access errors (cause Mx seems to assume the "default" navigation is then used for anonymous...) I'd like to hear your comments! EDIT: to work around for now, I have assigned the css-class "hidden" to the form opened in a popup, and this css hides it... (display:none;). But preferably I'd like to not redirect; I hope that there are options.
Why don't you create a alternative homepage for the anonymous user rol which only contains the login widget?
thats a lot easier than redirecting deeplink etc.. and I assume chrome will handle that fine as well.
btw: why using 188.8.131.52? since 3.0 is around and if you have to stick with 2.5.x, why not 2.5.7?

I can at least tell you that there is a bug in the URL Redirector which causes it not to work in Chrome. I'll put an update on the AppStore right now.
