    Hi.

    I thought I had this sorted but it appears I don't sorry.

    Forgive me as this is probably a very basic question as I am not an expert web developer and new to WordPress.

    What I would like to do is set up a members only area of my new website, and when members login they are immediately taken to a specific page (ID 200) that is the welcome page for the private area of the site.

    I've set up the members area, all I need to do now is set up a login page that when they click on login directs them to my members area welcome page.

    So I have created a page and on that page I have entered the following code from your form widget on the new page wysiwyg.

    [RedRokk_Login_Widget title="Login" transform="" transform="true" action="login" display="menu" css="" css="true" primary="" ]

    I've stated "When logged in show Nav Menu" If I click on Preview it shows my custom menu. I can't click on the menu link it shows in the preview window as it then opens the wordpress site within the window and there is no "insert" or "OK" or similar button shown - like one of your other forum members mentioned) Hence I just click on Insert which produces the code above.

    When the member clicks on my site main menu, selects the menu option that directs them to the members login page with the above code on it, they are presented with the login and password box. So that's perfect.

    They enter their credentials and click login. The user is then taken back to what I call the site homepage, the page presented when you first access the site using the main site URL. They then have to go back to the members menu and click on the page that is the members only login page which takes them into the members area.

    How can I take them direct to the particular members only page directly after they click the login button?

    I'm sure its straight forward but as I said, I am a novice and CSS is a mystery to me!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Alan

    The only way that I believe you can have this kind of functionality with this plugin, is to place a new input field in the submission form that is named redirect.

    Then the value would be equal to whatever page that you want.

    Thanks Jonathan. Sorry, as a novice, how would I do that?

    Use the shortcode feature and place the login onto a "page". When placing onto the page, check the feature that say's for advanced users only.
