#176 accepted defect
Return behavior after adding media is non-intuitive
|Reported by:||Karen Rustad||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by )
After I add a new piece of media, the site takes me to my profile page, of all places. Even if I didn't start out on my profile page when I clicked the 'Submit media' button. How silly. Two solutions: 1.) After adding new media, always take the user back to their gallery page. Makes more sense than their profile page--what does that have to do with their pictures? 2.) After adding new media, take the user back to whatever page they started out on when they started the media-adding interaction. This is probably more complicated to code, but it does make adding media slightly more smooth for the user.

I think some of this will be solved by when we have a panel that shows media in-processing... it might be that when a user is logged in and looking at their gallery it'll have a link to the processing panel and something like: :: You have 2 pieces of media processing [-> panel] Though that might be worthless if it will appear in a microsecond later. This might be a job for ajaxyness :) Regardless, I'm fine with the idea of redirecting to the gallery.. that makes sense to me.

Looking at the code for this, one of the simple implementations for this could be to just change the
redirect code to point to the new URI for the media entry.
return redirect(request, "mediagoblin.user_pages.user_home", user=request.user.username)

I'm not sure there's any clear indication on where to go from here in this bug. It's pretty old... but I agree at the high level that it could be better.
I don't think moving to a user's gallery is better than their homepage though. I think their current homepage is a pretty good place to be.
I'm not sure this bug should be open though... it would be much better for this to be rolled into some "uploading process improvements" type ticket. I wrote up a plan for some better uploading process on the mailing list; that might be a good way to move forward..

I think fixing #5564 and redirecting to the processing panel would be enough to close this ticket.
