Membership Plugin

Hi,
Maybe this is a basic question, but I have been through the whole manual and can't find it.

How do I let people log in once I create them as users? Is there a login page or a widget that I can place?

I have used a membership plugin before, but it didn't use the WP users, it created a database, so this is a little different. I don't want to give people access to the WP Admin panel. I just want to let them log in and view the pages that they have access to on the live site, not in the WP dashboard.
Will this plugin do that?

Thanks,
Matt

    Ok, assuming that this is "the right way" - which I don't totally agree with, how do you handle what the user sees after they log in. I don't want them to necessary have any access to the WP Admin panel, I just want them to have access to the site content.

    So how do you redirect them to the sites homepage after login, and then keep them out of the WP dashboard?

    Hey Matt -

    If you opt to use the "default" WP login screen, apparently there is another plugin here in this site that is called Login Redirect (or similar) that will allow you to create where you want them to go.

    Alternatively, you can do what I did, and find a third part plugin that lets you use widgets and or shortcodes to put your login where you want to avoid the WP login screen. Also, some allow you to specify where they redirect and some do not redirect at all, they just stay on the page they login from...
