You can use the login_redirect filter for this purpose:

 * Redirect user after successful login.
 * @param string $redirect_to URL to redirect to.
 * @param string $request URL the user is coming from.
 * @param object $user Logged user's data.
 * @return string
function my_login_redirect( $redirect_to, $request, $user ) {
    //is there a user to check?
    global $user;
    if ( isset( $user->roles ) && is_array( $user->roles ) ) {
        //check for admins
        if ( in_array( 'administrator', $user->roles ) ) {
            // redirect them to the default place
            return $redirect_to;
        //here make if statements for your specific roles and locations
        } else {
            return home_url();
    } else {
        return $redirect_to;

add_filter( 'login_redirect', 'my_login_redirect', 10, 3 );
  • Will it not redirect all logged in users, regardless of from which login form they use. I think defining redirect in login form would be better.

  • You could always check for your own login form by passing in a custom POST variable for example?

  • @JukkaRautanen it works with little modification for more users
