Test Registration

$num_redirects = 1;
// If implementing this on an existing site, this is here so that existing users don’t suddenly get the “first login” treatment
// On a new site, you might remove this setting and the associated check
// Alternative approach: run a script to assign the “already redirected” property to all existing users
// Alternative approach: use a date-based check so that all registered users before a certain date are ignored
// 172800 seconds = 48 hours

/*
Cookie-based solution: captures users who registered within the last n hours
The reason to set it as “last n hours” is so that if a user clears their cookies or logs in with a different browser,
they don’t get this same redirect treatment long after they’re already a registered user
