Laravel Redirect Back to Previous Page After Login

Published on Jun 29, 2020

In this article, I’m going to share to how redirect back to the previous page after login. Let’s see some solutions:

Table of Contents

  1. Solution 1
  2. Solution 2

Solution 1

The LoginController path is app/Http/Controllers/Auth/LoginController.php.

In the LoginController, add this showLoginForm() function:

public function showLoginForm()
{
    if(!session()->has('url.intended'))
    {
        session(['url.intended' => url()->previous()]);
    }
    return view('auth.login');
}

This function will set the “url.intended” session variable. Laravel uses this variable to look for the page in which the user will be redirected after login.

Solution 2

Inside LoginController, add this line to the __construct() function:

$this->redirectTo = url()->previous();

The full code will look like:

public function __construct()
{
    $this->middleware('guest')->except('logout');
    $this->redirectTo = url()->previous();
}
That’s it. Thanks for reading. ?
