Add-On Type(s)



Publish Redirect is an ExpressionEngine 2.x extension which allows you to redirect a user to a specific page after updating or adding an entry. By default the extension will redirect the user back to the current entry edit screen and display a message.

Please not that this extension uses the “entry_submission_redirect” hook.


  1. Download the extension from GitHub
  2. Copy the /third_party/sc_publish_redirect directory into your /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory.
  3. Login to your EE Control Panel.
  4. Go to Add-ons > Extensions and enable the sc_publish_redirect extension.


Version 1.0.1 2010-11-04
- Changed priority for extension because it conflicted with Structure Module

Version 1.0 20100111
- Initial public release


Once installed, there are a few settings that you might like to play with. By default, once the extension has been enabled, anytime you Publish, or Edit an entry, when you click the “Save” button, it will return you to the entry edit screen.
Select a redirect option

Select one of the following from the drop down list:

  1. Redirect back to entry [default option - returns you to the entry editing screen]
  2. Redirect to edit list [returns you to the Edit Channel Entries page]
  3. Redirect to publish screen [opens a new publish screen]
  4. Custom URL

Custom redirect URL

This field is ignored unless you have selected “Custom URL” from the drop-down list above. Simply enter any URL in here, and it will redirect to that screen (i.e. if you want it to redirect to the Apple site after saving an entry enter in ).

Note with this setting you can also use the following variables:

{base} - your site’s URL
{entry_id} - the entry_id of the saved entry
{channel_id} - the channel_id of the saved entry

So therefore you can create custom URLs that redirect to specific places in your CP. For example, to return to an empty publish page for the same channel as your saved entry, you would enter -


Success message

This simply lets you set a custom message to tell users the entry has been saved. This works as long as you redirect users to somewhere in the EE Control Panel.

@kgrote: you need to change the extension priority for SC Publish Redirect to have it work with structure.

They both use the same hook and structure has a lower prio hence it is called last. Change it to 20 (for example) and you’ll see it’s working.

Installed this add-on on a site running EE 2.1.2 and the Structure module and it didn’t work. I was still redirected to the dastardly publish summary page.
