Say I'm viewing a page that has numerous URL parameters passed in. I then login. When the login process returns me to the original page, all of my URL parameters are gone so the page doesn't display correctly since it is dependent on the URL parameters.

I can't reproduce this. Try this:

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2011-06-02

To reproduce:

When you are returned to the original page (SpreadSheetPlugin), all URL parameters are gone.

-- TaitCyrus - 2011-06-03

I tested, the logout removes the parameters. If you are logged out and click on the URL with parameters it works as expected, e.g. parameters are retained through the login process. Question is, do we need/want to retain the parameters on logout? One can argue both ways.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2011-06-03

Did you mean to say 'login' instead of 'logout'? From my 'how to reproduce', you are already logged out and then you go to a URL with URL parameters. When I login these parameters are lost. So this doesn't have anything to do with logout.

I meant logout. Using viewauth and login as non-auth user works for me as expected, e.g. URL params are retained through the login cycle.

Steps taken:

To reproduce:

So, there is an issue, the login link in the Account pulldown should take the URL params into consideration. I am marking this as confirmed.
