function custom_user_login_redirect( redirect_to, $redirect_to_raw, $user ) {
   $redirect_to = bp_loggedin_user_domain();
   return $redirect_to;

You can use the wp_authenticate-hook (see Codex) to trigger a function, when a user was successfully logged in and then use wp_redirect (see Codex) to bringt him to a specific page.

add_action ('wp_authenticate' , 'redirect_to_profile');

function redirect_to_profile() {
   $user_profile_url = 'getthisfromwhereever...';

You can try BP Login Redirect

Plugin description:

Allows to decide buddypress website admins where their users should land after log in

  • Hey guys, thanks for your comments and for your help, i greatly appreciate it. In the end, i downloaded an app called ultimatemember, in which it allows me to control just about everything with members. Its better than buddypress and i recommend it to you if you are tyring to build a community. Note- i am not affiliated to the plug in, in any way Commented Aug 11, 2015 at 0:30
