How could I redirect someone to the dashboard rather than the front end once they have registered on my site?

EDIT:

What I would like to do is to redirect someone to the Dashboard once they have signed in with their username and password.

Many thanks.

    How are you handling the registration. Usually wordpress let the user register and sends a password via mail and then the user logs in to the dashboard.?? – Maruti Mohanty Nov 4 '13 at 8:09
  • Hi Maruti. Apologies, I have added and EDIT above which explains what I need a little bit further. – SixfootJames Nov 4 '13 at 10:10

    Usually, WordPress redirects the user to the dashboard unless it is coded otherwise. Can you look for a function hooked to the filter login_redirect in your functions.php file. Detail codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/login_redirect – Maruti Mohanty Nov 4 '13 at 10:19

    Maruti, if you add that as an answer I will mark it as such, thanks! – SixfootJames Nov 4 '13 at 14:08
  • Hope the solution worked? :) – Maruti Mohanty Nov 6 '13 at 6:38
