replace dashboar for certain role with custom page (1 post)

    Hello WordPress people!

    I'm currently developing a worpress based page for a small company and have the following task to do:

    Like mentioned in the topic title I want to completely replace the dashboard for users of a certain user role. I want the users of this role ('uploaders') to see just a small upload form instead of the dashboard.
    So I can't dedicate this 'plugin', because I want to be able to use the wordpress user management system to add and modify the users.
    I am using the Capability Manager Plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/capsman/)
    to create and edit the roles and capabilities, but this won't matter too much I guess.

    So my actual question is what is the best way to implement this functionality to my wordpress page? I wasn't able to find a solution to the dashboard replacement thing by serching the interwebs, so you guys are my last resort! :(

    Could someone point me somewhere? Or tell me that my idea of replacing the dashboard sucks? And give an alternative?

    Thanks in advance!
