Redirect also when already logged in (cookie) ?

Hi, thanks for that great plugin.

I'm wondering how to get the plugin also work when accessing the website as an already logged in user ?

Imagine you login to my website. The cookie is set up... You come back next time but you are not redirected where I want you to go, instead you go directly to the page you were asking for (usually homepage or bookmarked page).

How can I force you to be redirected to a given URI ?

Thanks. Smile

You could hook into the plugin logic by using redirect_wrapper() or redirect_to_front_page() in your template. However, this would cause unexpected behavior: you wouldn't be allowing users to go where they're expecting to go. Plus, you might have to consider triggering such a redirect only once per user session.

Openflips - did you ever figure this out? I want to accomplish the same thing.
