Login Redirection Rules

The program will go through several factors when determining how to redirect a member who has just logged in. Here is how the program prioritizes login redirection rules.

Redirect Priority

Note that all of these appear in order of priority. So if condition number 1 is met, the sequence ends there. However, if condition number 1 is not met, the program moves on to condition number 2, and continues until one of the follow conditions are met.
  1. If the "show_member_cp" field is set to value "1" on the login form, the program will always redirect the user to the user control panel upon login.
  2. If the "url" field is set to any value on your login form, the program will always redirect the user to that URL.
  3. If the user's account has a custom Start Page (this is set from the user management screen in the admin control panel), the user will be redirected to that start page.
  4. If the option entitled Redirect to User CP at Login? within the program settings is set to "Yes", the program will redirect the user to the user control panel.
  5. If none of the above criteria are met, the program will select a random protected folder and redirect to that protected folder's "start page"
  6. If all of the above fail, the program will use the URL provided within the option named Backup Login Page
