    Do you require a more complex way to redirect users around your website when they login. This is a great method to use if you want to give your subscribers the ability to choose the page they are redirected to. You could provide visitors the option to redirect directly to their profile page or a custom settings page for your wordpress site. Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will add a select menu to the login screen that will allow your users to choose where they would like to be redirected.

    If redirecting based on role or capabilities is more your style take a look at this snippet.
