    I have been pulling my hair over this for the last hour! I have the members-only plugin installed, and have tried all the possible settings in that plugin to reirect back to the main blog site's front page, it it ALWAYS redirects to the dashboard...I want it to go straight to the blog frontpage when a user logs in.

    Why is this so difficult? I have tried some sites that recomment modifying the wp-login.php page source code, i have trie dmultiple plugins like weasel, etc...nothing works! Why is this so difficult?

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP!

    (p.s. - Using the latest 2.6 WordPress)

    Great Job zer0one, I've added similar functionality into Members Only 0.7 which I hope to release next week.

    @Crobs808 - this isn't actually a bug with Members Only, it's just the way WordPress login works by design.

    thanks,

    I had a similar problem. I choose the option to always redirect visitors to the url they game from.

    But when a user logged out (from p.ex. the blog index page) and then immediately logged in again (from the "/wp-login.php?loggedout=true" page) he landed on the dashboard page...

    I fixed it using the "hide dashboard" capability and use it to redirect them to the index page.

    But still, great plugin! Thanks for sharing

    Version 0.6.6 is out that adds the option to redirect users who login directly to wp-login.php. You can now choose to redirect them to the Front Page or to the Dashboard as normal.
