Login redirect back to previous page - Coldfusion Database Access

I have a number of secured pages and a login process that works. When a user tries to access a secure page prior to logging in, he is redirected to the login page. However, I wanted to the login page to capture the name of the previous secured page via a URL.variable and then use it in the URL in place of the 'login success' page. However, the process seems to loop back too quickly, because the secured page bumps back out to a 404 page, even though the login was successful. Any tips on how to do this are ...

    Default Login redirect back to previous page

    I have a number of secured pages and a login process that works. When a user
    tries to access a secure page prior to logging in, he is redirected to the
    login page.

    However, I wanted to the login page to capture the name of the previous
    secured page via a URL.variable and then use it in the URL in place of the
    'login success' page.

    However, the process seems to loop back too quickly, because the secured page
    bumps back out to a 404 page, even though the login was successful.

    Any tips on how to do this are appreciated.

    We use a pop up to log people in. Then we simply refresh the current page.

    If you think things are simply happening too quickly, try using the javascript
    setTimeout() function, instead of cflocation. Set the timeout to a long enough
    interval for things to happen in the background.

    Unless you are already doing that, in which case, I don't know.

    It turned out to be typo after all. Been looking at this code too long. Should take a break!

    Thanks!
