Redirect guest/user if not logged in withing minutes

Post by ciorascu84 » Mon Feb 24, 2020 4:56 pm

Hello J! friends..
I'm thinking about an extension and I don't know if it exists.
Is there an extension that "throws off site" (such as google[dot]com) a guest if he doesn't login/register after... 1 minute let's say?

I'm thinking to create a private website and if an user doesn't login or register within 30s - 1min tops, i want to automatically throw him out the website.

I think this could be done by registering for a period of time his IP address in database and there must be some {conditions} to see if he's loggin`in or registering.

And how exactly do you plan on finding out how fast users are at finding the registration link, filling out the form etc. It may take them longer than 30sec just to decide if they even want to register, to find the link and fill out the form. You could be kicking them out in the middle of the registration process.

Sounds like a very bad idea to me.

I don't care to find out how much it will take them to find out Login/Register buttons/links, because there will be 2 BIG modules in the middle of page immediate after a main message. What I asked: is there an extension out there doing this?

P.S.: it will be a site based on invitations.. but if there is an "intruder" who doesn't know what's the site about, automatically to get kicked out ;D
Thank You for your reply!

Your suggestion is perfect, but i need that in an extension... such as a plugin/or module. I bet this must be a plugin.

I don't know if it will help, it appears to do the same thing as @webdongle has suggested but is a plugin like you asked for.

Yes! That's it! Too bad that the user's site register-to-download doesn't work. I sent him a message about it, let's hope he will solve the problem.

Thank you for your help AMurray!
