Redirect of /hubb

Hi there,

If you go to

Code:
http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb
you are redirected to

Code:
http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb//big/dom/xhorizonsunlimited/www/hubb
Code:
http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/
(note the trailing /) works as expected.

Redirection post re-authentication

The redirection on login is really quite annoying.

The example is if you are logged of automatically after the timeout, when prompted for credentiels to log back in the last page you were on was not retained so you are redirected to HU Home page: Horizons Unlimited or at the very least to the HUBB ie. http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/

This is not best practice for any website as it creates a bad user experience. The user should be sent back to their last visited page and not a new or default page especially in the case of login time out or trying to re-establish a previous session. Only new login when establishing a new session should the user be directed to the HU Home page ie Horizons Unlimited

yup, all really annoying! Or as I've been saying recently: #@%&**($^#!!

working on it - or at least our developer is - but not successfully yet. grrrrrr

There is a problem with the login, and so far the best fix he's been able to come up with can cause this - not always, but way too often - and it is driving me nuts too. HIGH priority to get this fixed. We spent $20,000 for the upgrade, and just threw another $5000 at the login bug (and a couple of minor ones) and it's still not done. Needless to say we're not happy.

We're trying - please be patient and remember the travellers mantra - "shit happens - deal with it" - well, we're dealing with it as best we can!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
