Redirecting to landing page

Post by olebro » Fri Apr 16, 2021 12:16 pm

Hello everbody,

I'm in the process refurbishing a homepage I build like 5 years ago.

Back then I made a redirect to the landing page so the guests couldn't get pass it without using the main menu. Registrated users was able to login and pass the redirect to landing page. At the moment back then and until quite recently it was a pretty good idea and everybody was satisfied with it but ...

Now I want to change the site to a more blog like interface, and I want to remove the redirect, but unfortunately, I can't remember I initially had set it.

The problem is, that guests can't click on an article listed in a popular tags list without to be redirected to the landing page.

The system is working perfectly when the users are logged in, but guests can't get to read any articles but the shown in the landing page.

Does anybody have any idea to where I have to look to find this annoying redirect thing?

The landing page is the page that the Home menu item points to. Is it that page you want non logged in visors to be redirected to if their browser tries to reach another page?

You seem to have fixed the problem, since there is no login prompt when I click the Popular Tag links; it takes me to a new page, listing the articles containing those tags (which is how you describe wanting it to happen as I have interpreted your question). There is no redirect to any login form.
