Right now, if you use the sign up form and sign up, it simply tells you to go check your email in the sign up box. This isn't all that great for a variety of reasons. Users might think nothing happened because they don't see the message. They might get distracted and do something else, yadda yadda.
Is it possible to forward them to the confirmation page after they fill out the form instead of keeping them on the blog? That would be more useful, and I'm a bit surprised that this is not the default.
