With this small piece of WordPress snippet, you can redirect blog commenters to any post or page you specify.
I’m not sure about using this for a long term strategy. If we did that on ChurchMag, some of you might stop leaving comments after constantly being redirected. So, be sure to strategically think about this one.

- Invite commenters to “Like!” your Facebook page.
- Solicit an e-newsletter sign-up.
Here’s the snippet that can easily be added to your functions.php theme file or bundled up into your own functionality plugin:
If you encased this into a functionality plugin, you could easily turn it off and on when you wanted to push e-newsletter sign-ups or an any other awesome idea you come up.
If you think of some other great uses for this, please share!
