I'm new to phpBB, so I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong forum.
I'm working on a members-only forum for a client. I have written an authentication plugin to authenticate against their member database using a web service; this part works just fine.
Along the way, I referenced the defaultLDAP auth plugin and the auth plugin wiki page
, and followed the convention from both: if a user is logging in and does not already have a user record, it creates a record for them.
What I would like to do (I think) is redirect new users to the profile page after login and require them to provide their location and company name. The client would like to include these two fields next to the author on each thread/comment, and since it's a small-ish and known member base and everything will only be available to other members, privacy is not a concern.
Is it possible to redirect to the profile page if they are a new user? Is this even the best way to go about it? Any suggestions are much appreciated!
