[resolved] Dashboard help to replace standard wordpress dashboard (8 posts)

    This is an amazing plugin that has all of the elements I'm looking for but I've been unable to make it flow properly.

    When front-end users login from the wp-admin screen they are taken to the standard wordpress Profile page and Dashboard, not the custom pages I created. How do I take them to the wp frontend dashboard page which I called "dashboard" as per the instructions? I don't want them to be presented with the standard wordpress features at all, it is supposed to be completely a front-end experience.

    Also there is no New Post feature on the dashboard and there is no side menu with an Edit Profile either like is present in standard wordpress. The dashboard only lists current posts by the user with the edit and delete options.

    I was expecting a setup in the Options to tell your plugin what page is the dashboard, what page is the new post and then it would hook everything together like there is for the Edit Post. So far I'm stumped. Please help.

    I have the same problem. How can I create a redirection to the new "Dashboard Page" after the log in?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    I use it with Sidebar login plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sidebar-login/. This plugin creates a login form in the sidebar of the page. Once you logged in, it shows you the links where you can go from there. By default they are dashboard (standard), profile (standard) and log out, but you can set the links very easy from Sidebar Login Options in wp-admin and change it for the pages that you already creates with the front end plugin (dashboards, new post, etc.).

    Hope this helps.
    Sorry for my english.

    I am using a small plugin called: Peters login redirect

    Might solve your challenges as well

    hello, if I use the peters-login-redirect, how do you tell it to go to the newly created Profile Page, or tell it what page to go to?

    Hi leoly,

    On the settings page for the plugin, you can specify which page to go to after the user logged in, you can specify it by username/role/level and it even has a otherwise option

    It is a small plugin, so install it on your test site and try it

    Thank you for this solution!
    Peter's login script allowed me to select the Subscriber Role and reditect them to the Dashboard page (http://mysite/dashboard)

    I then modified my Dashboard, New-Post, Edit and Profile page to include navigation links before the shortcode to call the page content. My users are now able to login to their dashboard and navigate to the various pages. I have a grid system enabled on my theme so I can shortcode to create columns, below is the code that I use on my dashboard page. I reuse the same code on all pages and just change the shortcode for each specific page.

    <a title="Dashboard" href="http://mysite/dashboard">Dashboard</a>
    <a title="New Post" href="http://mysite/new-post/">New Post</a>
    <a title="Edit Profile" href="http://mysite/profile">Edit Profile</a>
