Sometimes, when I click on a link to a topic at frihost (whether via email or RSS), I end up going to the guest's view, which is dull and really intended for search engines.
Now when I click on the login link at the top, I goto the login page, type in my details, then when I click the login button, it sends me to the index page .
Would it be possible for Bondings / an admin with access to the code to modify the code ever so slightly, so that the login link passed a redirect address to the login page, which then redirects to that on login.
maybe you could load the login-page in a new window/tab and after logging in refresh the other page.
What about enabling auto-login? Then you shouldn't get that problem, at least very infrequently. rvec's suggestion is also a good solution.
But yes, you are right about that it should redirect to the same page. I'll try to change it, so it behaves that way - at least on some pages.
I do use autologin, however, I frequently get logged out while reading email updates
I also made a support thread about the problem....
You could also just login then hit the back button a couple of times then hit refresh. This seems to work for me. I have had this problem a couple of times.
