When you want to set up a login and do a specific redirection to another page, this plugin will save you time…
Define a set of redirect rules for specific users, users with specific roles, users with specific capabilities, and a blanket rule for all other users (logout redirects in this plugin support only this blanket rule). Also, set a redirect URL for post-registration. This is all managed in Settings > Login/logout redirects.
You can use the syntax [variable]username[/variable] in your URLs so that the system will build a dynamic URL upon each login, replacing that text with the user’s username. In addition to username, there is “homeurl”, “siteurl”, “postid-23″, “http_referer” and you can also add your own custom URL “variables”. See Other Notes / How to Extend for documentation.
