Support » Fixing WordPress » User logs in and is sent to their admin not home page

    WordPress 5.5.1 running Jolene theme.
    Hi Folks,
    Something has gone wrong with our log-in system. When a user/editor/admin logs in to the site, instead of being presented with the front end/home page they are presented with their version of site admin/dashboard.
    They can access the sites front end by clicking the home button (top left corner) but this is causing a great deal of confusion as many of our users don’t even know they have dashboard.
    The site is several years old and this problem just appeared out of the blue yesterday.
    Cheers,
    Eugene

    Hi James,
    Thanks for that but and have since fixed with Peter’s Login Redirect.
    The weird thing is our site has been sending users back to home page since I build site 4/5yrs ago. I’ve recently binned our forums (no body used them) so can only assume that I’ve also binned whatever I did in the first place to redirect to home page. Sort of “baby out with the bathwater”. Binned about seven associated plugins along with bbPress so that was probably what caused the problem.
    Thanks for you help anyway,
    Cheers and stay safe,
    Eugene.
