Welcome page and log-in issue

Final thing to sort out before launch... (please note this says this is for the site wibble.bluebit.co.uk - but that was the developent server - the live site is wibble.us... how do i change that on here?)

After payment members are taken directly to the Welcome page. This is good. However, until they are logged in, they cannot see the instructions for different levels of membership that I have set up on that page behind 'protected content shortcodes].

It does instruct them to login though (and once they are logged in the site works as it should) however, they are not automatically redirected back to the welcome page after logging in - which is where all the instructions are.

Therefore I need to take paid members directly from payment on Paypal to a log-in page which then directs them automatically to the Welcome page.
Is this possible?

Please advise asap, as my developer is working on this today on the live site.
Also, please can you check that I've written this welcome page correctly as the member can see 'protect my content for level-1-basic-membership' text. Thanks

Here's what I have on the WELCOME PAGE (for your info):

    Greetings Cheryl Rickman,

    Thank you for these great questions and significant items to bring up.

    Therefore I need to take paid members directly from payment on Paypal to a log-in page which then directs them automatically to the Welcome page.
    Is this possible?

    Anything is possible when one is a competent coder with a vision and the will to get it done - and I am not a coder.

    Getting the log in to redirect after log in is simple enough but it will redirect all those logging in and not discriminate where they come from i.e. PayPal etc.

    Custom coding can certainly get this handled if there is a developer available at wpmu jobs who could get onto it right this minute or perhaps you could approach someone like Tweaky to get the job done.

    Concerning your Welcome page, it is not necessary to wrap every sentence with the level short code though it will indeed work:
