Using SharePoing 2010. I have configured a Claims Based Authentication web application allowing Windows Authentication (NTLM) and FBA. All is good there. I am able to login using my Windows credentials and FBA credentials. When I login using FBA credentials I would like to be redirected to a specific site collection. Where could I include this custom code or logic to handle the redirect? I created a custom Login page so that I could apply my own branding. Would the redirect logic be included in the custom login.aspx code behind? Am I able to modify the authenticate.aspx page? Examples are very much appreciated.

When the user arrives on the login page, there should be a query string parameter Source. Once you know the user is using FBA, you can modify this parameter from your custom login page. SharePoint should then send the user back to where you want.
