Redirection Settings

In this tab, you can set the redirection to different pages after someone logs in or register or log out. The settings are there for all the roles – administrators, editors etc. You can specify a particular setting for each of the user class and for each of their actions.

First of all, you can choose to not redirect. If you think redirection doesn’t matter much in the eyes of the visitors of your user then just check the Disable redirection feature at the beginning of this tab and let WordPress do what it does by default.
