Login Redirect Page - first page seen will be the Services forum
Today, as Admin, I changed a setting for Regular Members that determines which page existing members see first after login.
The options for the Login Redirect Page are: own profile page, a site index page, or the URL to any page in the network.
I have set this to the URL to the Services forum page , which reprresents the core function of our network - a place where members can make offers or requests for services related to research writing and academic, educational or scientific communication generally.
The Signup Redirect Page remains unchanged: own profile page.
This is important because the first useful thing a new member can do is to provide information about themselves for the Admin to see (under the Account settings tab of the profile page) and for other members and site visitors to see (under the Profile settings tab of the profile page).
Adding public profile data with the Profile settings allows other members to find you, and any services you may be offering or needing, and also allows you to find other members who have also provided public information. Having a public profile is the first step needed to build a useful personal network and working relationships.
Account and Profile data can be updated at any time after login, by going to your profile page using the menu tab with your profile name (in the site main menu).
