I have created custom post type Books in my functions.php. Now I want to redirect every user (assigned with editor role). When they click to Dashboard it goes to this page:


What I want:

enter image description here

1 Answer 1

add_action('load-index.php', 'redirect_dashboard');

function redirect_dashboard() {
  if ( ! is_admin() || current_user_can('activate_plugins') ) return;
  $screen = get_current_screen();
  if ( is_object($screen) && $screen->base == 'dashboard' ) {
    $url = admin_url('edit.php');
    wp_safe_redirect( add_query_arg( array('post_type' => 'product'), $url) );
  • It is also affecting to main administrator page. I want only editor role otherwise you code is perfect for me. Can you help me how to fix that also.

  • @Manan I've edited the code. Just a little addition on first if. In the question you said "i want to redirect every user" not "i want to redirect every editor" or I would use this code on first publish.
