login redirect failed redirection

I recently installed Login Redirect, latest version of wordpress 3.7.1 When attempting to login the user is directed to the default user profile page within the dashboard, failing to redirect to the homepage.

Then once logged in the user can only access member pages and none of the public open pages. Once logged out the user can now access all pages except members as is intended.

I had raised this in another post which went dead, I really need some assistance with this issue and setup, client is breathing down my neck to get it sorted but really do not know where to start
