Hi Brian,

Take a look at the user_first_action option, under Setup -> Users. It allows you to direct the user for their first login. Note that there's also a <%current_user_first_logon%> tag available to detect whether or not this is actually the first login.

The second part gets more difficult. The easiest way to go about this would be to use a sort of redirect if the desired fields aren't filled in. Maybe not even a redirect - an annoying reminder link at the top of the page if the user hasn't filled in the desired fields. So, you'd do something like:

<%ifnot current_user_homepage%>
<font color="blue">Just a reminder - you should enter your homepage from the
<a href="gforum.cgi?do=user_profile;<%hidden_query%>">Profile</a> page</font>
<%endifnot%>

If you really want to force them there, on category_list.html you'd put the appropriate meta refresh tags between the <head> tags. I'd be careful doing this though - not being able to view the main index until you enter your profile data might annoy some users.
