    Using 2.6.1 and i want to redirect users to their blog. So you login at the main blog,, and first check to see if the user has a blog, if not send them to the signup page. If they do, redirect them to there blog. How can i achieve this?
    I have searched the threads here and while there are posts about this, they don't seem to work, at least for me.
    Can anyone please help?

    From your second link, you have the solution, but without seeing the entire function I can't tell if it works. Basically at the moment, it seems as if your $user_login isn't being filled.

    I think this will help you a lot:

    <?php global $user_ID, $user_login, $current_user, $user_identity;
    echo $user_ID . '<br />';
    echo $user_identity . '<br />';
    echo get_current_user_id() . '<br />';
    echo "HERE" . '<br />';
    print_r($current_user) . '<br />';?>

    the print_r on the $current_user is really a lot of info, but somewhere in there you can find what you're looking for. The main thing is, at the point of re-direction, are you entering into the function properly? Most likely not because $user_login isn't being fulfilled. You might be missing:

    global $user_login;
