    Hey Peter,
    After browsing for a while I've been unable to find much information pertaining to first time redirects. It would be excellent if you added this feature to your plugin. It completely absolutely differentiate you from all of these other basic redirect plugins.

    Resources I've found

    Thanks a ton

    This feature has been requested in the past. The issue was that there is no flag in WordPress that says something like "hasn't logged in yet". So some other solutions check the registration time and just show a message or redirect to a welcome page within, say, the first 48 hours of registration. You can beef up that solution by adding a cookie on the user's computer after the first login, essentially making it so that it only displays the first time.

    I won't be adding this feature in the short-term, but you could build this feature yourself by writing code that extends the plugin (see http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/peters-login-redirect/other_notes/ for documentation) and share it back to the community!
