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:
The link to use would be:
The pattern being
http://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/johnjohnston/ the url to your blog
/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)
