In order to full fill your requirement, need to use Event/Observer.

  • First create a custom input hidden field (custom_redirect) at custom phtml Input this field: <input name="custom_redirect" type="hidden" value="1"/>

  • Then using customer_login event for redirect to custom page on basic of custom_redirect.

At event fire an observer which redirect to yourcustom url page on basic of custom_redirect input value using magento FrontController prediction action




Observer code:


 * To change this license header, choose License Headers in Project Properties.
 * To change this template file, choose Tools | Templates
 * and open the template in the editor.

 * Description of Observer
 * @author work
class StackExchange_Magento90351_Model_Observer {
    //put your code here
 public function redirectNotLogged(Varien_Event_Observer $observer){

  • I tried to implement your method but when I am adding events to config.xml my custom form page showing 404
