Make a link send unlogged user to login page based on custom post type key (1 post)

    I'm using the category template to list a series of custom posts, each of which lists a link to document. Some documents are public and some are private. Currently, if the post is public, the link is displayed; but if the link is private, I'm echoing a statement "Private resource -- please log in to read."

    I want to make the words "log in" a link that sends any non-logged-in user to the login page and then redirects the user back to this page. But I haven't been able to make it work. I thought maybe auth_redirect() is the way to go, but maybe I'm off base on that.

    Here's a somewhat simplified version of the loop as it currently stands.


    if ( have_posts() ) :
    while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    // the loop
    $private = get_post_custom_values('private'); // read custom field

    if (isset($private[0]) && $private[0] == 'yes' ) { // if the post is private

    if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {// and if the user is logged in
    // display private post ?>
    <div>
    <h4><?php the_title(); ?></h4>
    <?php get_post_custom_keys();?>
    <p><?php the_content(); ?></p>
    <p>ID, "resourcelink", true); ?>">Resource Link</p>
    <?php if (get_post_meta($post->ID, "private", true)==yes) {?>
    <p class="private">This document private.</p>
    <?php } ?>
    </div>
    <?php }

    else { // if the user is not logged in
    // want make the a login link, with redirect back to this page
    // but now just tells user to log in ?>
    <div>
    echo the_title('<h4>','</h4>');
    get_post_custom_keys();?>
    <p><?php the_content(); ?></p>
    <?php echo '<p>Private resource — please log in to read.</p>';
    }
    }
    else { // if the post is public
    // display public post, for every visitor ?>
    <div>
    <h4><?php the_title(); ?></h4>
    <?php get_post_custom_keys();?>
    <p><?php the_content(); ?></p>
    <p>ID, "resourcelink", true); ?>">Resource Link</p>
    </div>
    <?php }
    endwhile;
    endif;
    ?>
