    I now have Weasel’s Login Redirect plugin alongside Role Manager and have the redirect working the way I want it to, i.e. after logging in the user is sent to the site’s home page instead of the dashboard or profile page.

    The only glitch is that there is still a link to Site Admin which would allow users to mess w/ the profile, but I guess I’ll have to live with that and reset it if someone messes with it. Ideally I would like to hide that but it seems like if I remove my Meta widget from the sidebar the redirect stops working.

    So, Weasel’s Login Redirect doesn’t *completely* hide the back-end, but it comes pretty close.

    Thanks Otto. I’ll check it out.

    In the meantime one more thing that has come up is that I’ve noticed that even when logged in, users who have permission to see private pages don’t see the links to those pages, and people who have permission to see private posts can’t see the post categories unless there is something else in the category that is marked public. This seems like a bug. Users who have permission to see certain content should also be able to see the links to that content.

    Actually I was wrong about the Weasel plugin. If you log out from the admin side you don’t get the redirect. If you log out from the user side, you do.

    I really like Weasel’s plugin. You can create custom URLs to take people directly to private pages that do not appear on the site, or to any page you want a particular person to go to upon login, including category pages, tag pages, any page that you can supply a URL for. For example:

    http://yourdomain.com/yourwpfolder/wp-login.php?redirect_to=/yourwpfolder/?page_id=XXX
