I have an issue where my users are going to their account settings page when they login. I really don’t want them to have to see account info that doesn’t have to change a lot after login. It just means they have to click a link to get where they want to be. The My Account link is always available if they need to edit their account settings.
So, I installed the Login Destination Module. This is a really simple solution for me although I believe that it could also serve more advanced purposes because it integrates with the Triggers Mod. After a user logs in, I automatically redirect that person to the ./home-page page. Since there are conditions on that page that come from the Panel itself, I can make other things happpen at that point if I need to. But this way, I ensure that all users are sent to the main page of the site. Quick and Dirty.
