How to change the redirection when a user logs in

Hi, Can someone please explain how I can change the redirection that takes place when a user logs in. At the moment they are taken to the profile page which has a link to the protected page at the bottom. I would like to implement the system whereby the user would login and be taken directly to a page with the protected content. I would also like to include a logout page on the protected page. ( would the logout page be necessary do you think??)

On your users_Login.php page, find the line of code that reads like this:
"successRedirect" => "users_Profile.php",

That is the successful login redirect page. Change the users_Profile.php to the page you want the user to be redirected to after logging in. Note, this is a relative link to the page you want to forward to.

Yes, it'd be a good idea to allow the users to logout when they're on the restricted pages.

Redirect

How would you direct the person to the protected page that they were trying to access rather than going to the profile page?

Inside of the Security Assist authenticate user server behavior there is a check box for "Go to previous URL (if it exists)". If you have this checked the user should be redirected back to the page that they came from where they were denied access. If the user just goes directly to this login page then it will take them to the page listed as the redirect page.

I already have that, it doesn't work. Jason helped me one time. I had to do 1 more thing.

How are you redirecting them to the login page in the first place? You may need to add the url parameter accesscheck=[pagename] when sending them to the login page in the first place.
