Private, per-user page? (7 posts)

    I want to have this set up:

    1) user logs in (with user name and password)
    2) they're taken to a page (with text, images, links) that can only be viewed from their login

    There are plenty of membership/role manipulation plugins around, but I haven't found a simple solution that allows me to specify "member homepages" that are private and hidden from other users.

    Any ideas?

    FWIW, I came across this today:


    It gets me most of the way there – it allows for per-user login redirects.

    Just wish it was more automated (create a user, automatically makes a "page" with redirect for their login auto established).

    One thing about the solution I found is that it doesn't restricts users from seeing other pages.

    What I'm looking for will allow a user to login right to their page, and view no other pages (except those which I enable as being "global" pages).

    If there was a way to have a user log in and then pass their password from the log in to WordPress' inherent per-page-password system (and keep them logged in until their session times out) then I'd be set.

    So I'm looking for a combo of wplogin-redirect (noted above) and Page Access which restricts certain pages to certain groups (but instead of groups, I want to restrict users to their own homepage).

    Is there one plugin that would be more efficient at this user login/redirect/page restriction task?

    Hi guys,

    I think I may have a solution (at least it's working for my situation...so far).

    Use the wplogin-redirect plug-in that ben_allison pointed out above and then also use the User Permissions plug-in along with it. Once you install this plug-in, every time you make a post it will have a box that allows you to check off read/write access as well as two text inputs for comma-separated IDs for allowing specific users read/write access. There is even a text-field to redirect to a certain post/page ID when a user who doesn't have access tries to go to the page/post.

    In conjunction with the wplogin-redirect, I set up a redirect to a specific page that I then used this User Permissions plug-in on and gave admin read/write access and only a single user read access...thereby making it only viewable to me (the admin) and the user who I gave access to.

    **NOTE** User Permissions is no longer being updated and hasn't been officially tested with WordPress after version 2.6.2... so it may have some wacky side-affects that I don't know about yet. So far it seems to be working fine. I'm using WP 2.8.1 with it.

    Has anyone come up with a solution to this? I need the user to only see the page dedicated to him.
