RM Unify Tiles to link to blogs

Some people may want to add a tile to their, or their school, launch pad that goes directly to their blog and also logs them into glow. Or to direct teachers and pupils to a private or glow only blog.

Just using a link to the blog will end up with the users on the site but not logged in or in the case of a private or glow only blog ending up on a page that says log into glow.

You can avoid this by creating a special link for a title.

if you blog’s URL is:
https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/bantonbiggies/

The link to use would be:

http://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/bantonbiggies/wp-login.php?redirect_to=/nl/bantonbiggies

The pattern being

http://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/johnjohnston/ the url to your blog

/wp-login.php?redirect_to=

/nl/johnjohnston (slash, your LA code slash blog)

This will take users who click the tile to the front page of your blog in a logged in state (if it is a private blog they will need to have a role on the blog)
