simple login/redirect system?

Hi all,
I'm trying to set-up a simple login with redirect and few pages but it seems a huge amount of work.
I come from ADDT and this is 3 click of mouse away.
I've seen the security pages but this is a lots more than I need.
All I need is create a set of page for 2 users:
1- user1 once logged is redirected to page1.php
2- user2 once logged is redirected to page2.php

Is there a simpler way to do this with WA?

What are the steps to do this?

TIA

tony

Save the user group field in the session on login.

Redirect all users to page1.php

Check page1.php and if it is a type user2 then redirect to page2.php

Hi Ray,
thanks for your reply.
Actually I did something similar: I created a logged.php page and added here the code to switch page reading the group session variable.
I still can't understand clearly what the group access rules do.
I created two groups but why have I to add members to them? I added a field in the user mysql table 'userGroup' and here I set the user group (admin, user, ...).
So, group members are created using a simple select in the user table.
Now I want to protect some pages to allow access to admin group only; and I want to protect other pages to allow access only to users.
How can I do this with group access rules?
TIA

You create two rules. One for "admin user" and one for just "user" and then you can restrict access based on one or the other. It probably already created the "user" group for you if you used the wizard to create your login pages. Now just duplicate that rule and add another condition that checks the additional saved session variable that identifies an admin user.
