#24926 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Login to Frontend, instead Dashboard

Description

When a user login in a wordpress, by default was redirected to Wordpress dashboard instead the frontend of the site.

who are knowledgeable about wordpress, know how to get to frontend inmediately, but for new users, them lose in the way, and most of them, leave the site.

My suggestion is that new users (at least the suscriptor role) redirect when login to front end instead dashboard, or request them where they can to go after login (frontend or dashboard) and save this parameter for future login.

That's all
Thank You

Valentín

Sounds for me like plugin material.

This also seems plugin material to me. You can always use wp_login_url( home_url() ); in your theme.

Another vote for plugin material. And, there are plugins already available that do this, such as http://wordpress.org/plugins/peters-login-redirect/. (See http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=login+redirect for the full list.)

Hi Markoheijnen, thank's for you repply.

Interesting and basic code, but although this is possible, if you need to upgrade/update the theme, you must to apply again.

I believe (for this reason I publish it), that is more efficient if Wordpress has this feature as a native feature.

Plugins are an option, but not is an optimal solution. this is very basic feature that other r CMS has in theri native codex.

Greetings
Valentín
