Login Redirect (8 posts)

    I was wondering is there anyway that when the user logs into on the homepage they would be redirected back to the homepage instead of being taken to the profile page?

    You should find a couple of plugins dealing with this issue but I couldn't name them on the spot (but you find them if you google for it).

    On the other hand you could make a hack in one of the WP files. Disadvantage of this method...every time you update your WP install you need to reperform the hack...and I couldn't tell you either which file to edit.

    If they don't have anything to do in the admin interface... WHY should they login? Any logical reason for it?

    to post comments, I use the option where users must be logged into comment. As its a fan site I send newsletters out so keeping a database of email addresses.

    When visitors register to your site they do NOT agree to receive unwanted email messages. Putting those email adresses in your newsletter list - is illegal in most countries because it is considered spam (a.k.a. unwanted email).
    And as far as I know WP doesn't have an opt-in feature to manage mailing lists.

    If you use sidebar widgets, you might find this login widget handy for that sort of thing:

    moshu I think your jumping the gun abit here and having a go at me without even looking at my site and for a moderator i would expect different.

    I have not sent out any emails as the site is still under development and i will be making sure all my users know that newsletters are sent out.

    i'd appreciate it if you didnt accuse me of being a spammer without proof.
