Isn't it a bad idea to...

Isn't it a bad idea to redirect a person to the post they reported after they reported it? If, say, the post contained "bad" images, and the person reported it for that, would they really want to be redirected back to it?

Re: Isn't it a bad idea to...

Hmm, possibly a good point. What do others think?

And where would you suggest redirecting instead?

I would suggest redirecting to the home of the forum or the forum the thread was in. So if someone report this thread, they would be redirected to FluxBB Discussion.

Re: Isn't it a bad idea to...

What about a redirection to the first post if the reported message is not the first post and the forum index if it is ?

I got an other idea: why don't we check the reported post in order to avoid 2 or 3 reports for the same message that clutter the admin panel?

Just make it redirect back to the topic or forum page.

Or if it was a gross image, the user would most likely exit the browser or not look..?

Re: Isn't it a bad idea to...

I rethought of a idea that may be possible with Laravel. Check if the reported post was the first one. If it is, redirect to the forum main page. If it was not the first post, redirect to the first post.

Often, the user would report it before closing the browser. Then, they're redirected back to the image that should be deleted.

Re: Isn't it a bad idea to...

I am strongly against inconsistent solutions like redirecting to one page in some cases, to another in other cases.
That would just confuse people.

So yeah, I'm all for index. smile

Re: Isn't it a bad idea to...

Ok, I created a ticket.

What about redirecting to the viewforum page instead? That would be a little more contextually intelligent. smile
