Redirect fails aftercaspio login in Wordpress



Hi All!

I am following the "How to Build an Expense Reporting Application With Caspio / Part 4 of 5" tutorial on youtube and trying to make the authentication and redirect work. However, rather than using html pages I am using wordpress and a login page I created for this.

I have created the login page in WP (and other pages as per the tutorial) and successfully embedded the Caspio code. The login screen is there when I go to the login page and I can log in. However, once I log in I would expect the "login Screen" datapage to redirect me to the page in the code. That does not happen. What happens instead is that I am still on the same WP page (the page where the Caspio login is embedded) but now logged in into Caspio. It does not redirect me.

this is the code I am using in the HTML DtaPage

if("[@authfield:Users_Role]" == "Admin"){
window.location = ""https://mypage.com/Admin/";
else if if("[@authfield:Users_Role]" == "Regional Director"){
window.location = "https://mypage.com/dashboard-regional-director/";
else if if("[@authfield:Users_Role]" == "Local Director"){
window.location = "https://"https://mypage.com/dashboard-local-director/";
else if if("[@authfield:Users_Role]" == "Site Manager"){
window.location = "https://"https://mypage.com/dashboard-site-manager/";
else {
window.location = "https://google.com/";


What am I missing here?


Other than using WP I am following the tutorial to the letter. I even tried to use google as destination for the operator role (last else) with no luck. I also tried to embed the code and to use the caspio plugin - no difference. I am currently using the free Caspio account for testing and learning.

I am using page Builder by siteOrigine and Astra Theme


All help highly appreciated!

Hi @autonumber

Thanks for the feed back - not that is not it - what you are referring to are my poor redacting skills

this is the actual code - so worst case scenario I should end up on google ... but nothing happens


you have two ifs on your else ifs

should just be



else if

else if



not sure if you need www. as well if you have that on your real link (google should have one)
