Auto Login

  1. The user registration addon does a great job in registering the user. However it does not auto-login. I've tried several optional login/registration plugins and even a few with auto-redirect, however nothing that works either with this, before it or after it. Another issue is the registration does not serve as a login form either.

    In looking at it, it seems 2 forms are necessary. One to take the registration (which I have), then a redirect from form one to form two that only shows content to logged in users (which it redirects to but is not visible because the user is not logged in - which is the problem).

    Trying to accomplish overview
    Form One - Anyone can view contents, has register and a login form
    Form Two - Only logged in users can see content

    Objectives
    1. register and be redirected from form one to form two and see contents as a logged in new user automatically.
    2. login and be redirected from form one to form two and see contents as a logged in returning user.

    Do you have a snippet or plugin you can recommend or offer to allow to allow for this?

  3. You said:

    Which plugins or code have you tried? There are all sorts of functions written out there for auto-logging the user in. I'm curious which ones you tried and what happened when they did not work. Maybe we need to take the most promising approach and see why it does not work.

    There have been other people looking for similar functionality:
