I would like to propose you an improvement regarding log in into Discourse forum. Not sure whether it was previously requested or developed, but I did not find any topic related.
Would be nice if, to log in into the forum, an auto-login feature or similar were available when coming from another url. Let’s see the following scenario.
If we have a category only allowed for people with TL0 (i.e., only logged users can see this category), if we send the link to this category to someone it will get the following message:
If now the user logs in, user will appear in the main page, not in the category page losing the target url.
Assuming you have only one authentication method (e.g., OAuth2), could it be considered to auto-login the user instead of showing this message? Thus, user will be allowed to go directly to the ‘private’ side of the page without losing the expected target url.
This can also be considered to pages like
/wizard. Sending this link to a person who is not logged in will end up in the main page, having the user to then re-going manually to
/wizard path after logging in.
What do you think, is there any similar solution to this?
