Hi, I'm using the Guest User plugin in combination with the Contribution plugin to collect user content on a client's site. We've noticed a handful of issues and just wanted to put them out there to see how best to proceed.
- The lack of an option to configure the "instant access" duration. This would be a really useful addition in general, and especially so considering that one of the Guest User plugin's best uses is to enable the Contribution plugin. Users frequently need more than 20 minutes to compose a contribution and don't respond well when they lose their work.
- The link in the confirmation email doesn't appear to work during the instant access period (that is, when the user is "logged in"). It just lands the user on the homepage. At least on our site (which uses a custom theme and is served over SSL).
- When the confirmation link does work, it redirects to the GU login page with the message: "Please check the email we just sent you for the next steps! You're almost there!" But that step (clicking the confirmation link) has already been completed. The second message in the user's inbox is, for confirmation/login purposes, totally superfluous. It's just a confirmation of confirmation (which is fine to do but it strikes me as sort of confusing to tell people to go look at that and then come back).
- The inability of guest users to logout via /admin/users/logout. Is there some other way to accomplish this?
