Change log-in landing page

Postby Hinson » Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:13 am

I've searched the forums and the net but can't find the answer. When my members sign in, they are taken to their profile page. I want to change this so they are taken first to the front/main page. I've seen the switch somewhere but now cannot find it. Using joomla 1.5 with CB

Look on the right side for Login Redirection Page

Ripose, thanks for the response. I did do as you suggest above and set home as the redirect page but notta! I had done that previously but figured I'd give it another shot. Still kept going to the profile.

Then I noticed that the login form module was not published. So I looked around and found that a different login component had been loaded by the guy who helped me(read "did 99% of the work") set up the site.

The Login Redirection URL is listed as: index.php?option=com_comprofiler&Itemid=54

So, how do I find the URL of the main page?

Hinson, I was having the same problem and got looking at the page source. It is drawing the user log in from the components/com_user/views/login/view.html.php file. If you go into this file and edit line 61 for the login destination or line 62 for the logout destination it will take care of what you are trying to acheive. They are both set to the index.php and if you replace that with what you want for your destination it will direct there.

'index.php?option=com_user&view=login%20&Itemid=65' is what I put in on line 61 to stay at the login page once successfully logged in.

I have my login inside of an article. When I login it keeps me on the same page/article containing a log out button. I want it to redirect to a new page that I have created as my landing page, as I have no User Menu in my install. My landing page is not found inside of the login redirect dropdown in module manager. In module manager I can only link to a menu item. My landing page is not a menu item. Please explain either how to 1) install a User Menu and how to edit it, or 2) How to set up my login module to direct to the article(page) that I have created.

Please advise.

Landing Page

Postby vanessaa 1992 » Mon Aug 09, 2010 11:45 pm

Hello

The landing page is one of the most important parts for a Profitable Online Business.

In addition to the landing page will get: traffic, maximize sales and attract subscribers.

So I want to give them a few steps to make a good landing page.
Here are some steps that can help create a great landing page. It is vital that Landig page load faster, the browser must have the title of the page, the text should be focused on the niche market must be organized, also have information that will attract customers and as a final trick should not have much information.


To see the rest of the steps go to this page:
