To redirect to another page in Drupal 7, you can use the drupal_goto() function. This function is provided by the Drupal system and is used to redirect the user to a different page on the site.


Here's an example of how to use drupal_goto() to redirect the user to the homepage:

1
drupal_goto('<front>');


You can also specify an external URL as the destination:

1
drupal_goto('https://www.example.com');


You can use drupal_goto() in a variety of contexts, such as in a form submission handler, in a custom function, or in a template file.


Note: drupal_goto() is deprecated in Drupal 8 and has been removed in Drupal 9. In Drupal 8 and later, you should use the RedirectResponse class from the Symfony HTTP Foundation component to redirect the user to another page.

In Drupal 7, you can redirect to another page programmatically using the drupal_goto() function. Here's an example:

  1. In your custom module or theme, create a new function or modify an existing one where you want the redirect to happen.

function mymodule_redirect_to_another_page() {
  // Replace 'path/to/destination' with the path to the page you want to redirect to.
  $path = 'path/to/destination';

  // Specify additional options, if needed.
  $options = array(
    'query' => array('param1' => 'value1', 'param2' => 'value2'),
    'absolute' => TRUE,
  );

  // Perform the redirect.
  drupal_goto($path, $options);
}


  1. Save your changes and clear Drupal's caches for the new function to take effect.


Now, when you call mymodule_redirect_to_another_page(), Drupal will redirect the user to the specified page, with optional query parameters and an absolute URL if necessary.
