Firefox - get redirected to the login screen
IE9 - redirected to a page that says page deleted.
Safari - Same as IE9
Opera - Same as IE9

Ok, I’ll provide more details:

The link can be on any page, say a blog talking about Modx and providing a link to a particular page in the docs, so for example, this a link from one blog site:

http://rtfm.modx.com//display/revolution/Template+Variables#TemplateVariables-WhatisaTemplateVariable

When the link is followed, it will load the particular docs page, then immediately redirect to one particular login page:

http://rtfm.modx.com/login.action?os_destination=%2Fdisplay%2Frevolution%2FTemplate%2BVariables

Which shows a Modx documentation logo and a login form with 2 fields for username and password. (When the Esc key is pressed for a while, the redirection would not occur and the docs page can be viewed- for a workaround smiley )

Different docs pages would get redirected to this same login page, but you can see the last part of the os_destination param is different.

Anyways, this is the full page source of the login form page:

It’s been reported a number of times over the last few months. I hope it can be fixed because it definitely turns off new users. Often the top link in Google leads to this phenomenon.

http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution

I tried it just now and the link above redirected me to: http://rtfm.modx.com/login.action?os_destination=%2Fdisplay%2Frevolution%2FMODx%2BRevolution -- a login page.]]>

http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution

among the top results.

Using FF, I was redirected first to
http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution/MODx+Revolution

then to
http://rtfm.modx.com/login.action?os_destination=%2Fdisplay%2Frevolution%2FMODx%2BRevolution

without a registration link, and I wouldn’t like to register anyhow, as I just want to read the docs.

After reading this thread here, I tried in IE, and could read the docs without having to log in, after the following automatic redirection chain was completed:

http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution
http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution/MODx+Revolution
http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution/MODx+Revolution;jsessionid=57DA7B36D023A5EC8FA776DCCC807CCE
http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution20/MODx+Revolution;jsessionid=90290F045933786441B7EA2CE8C3981D
http://rtfm.modx.com/display/revolution20/Home

odd.


btw, visiting http://rtfm.modx.com/login.action?os_destination=%2Fdisplay%2Frevolution%2FMODx%2BRevolution with IE doesn’t show me any "register" link either, page looks the same as in FF. And there’s no "forgot password" function, neither.]]>

It’s the one case where IE works better than FF. wink

The documentation site doesn’t normally require a login.]]>
