How can I completely disable the customer dashboard after login and after customer registration ?

After that I want to write only a success message.

Thanks for help.

  • What do you want to happen instead? Customer logs in ... and then? Commented Dec 2, 2013 at 20:04
  • Do you want them to be redirected somewhere else, or do you want them to never see the dashboard and all related functionality?

  • It seems you don't want to display dashboard at all. And wanna give permission to view all other details right? If yes you can do that from System->permissions->roles. look here magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/…

Redirecting a user back to the page he come from after logging in is fairly easy. This can be done via System > Configuration > Customer section.

Rewriting after login will take some more effort. From what I can see this quickly you will need to overwrite the customer controller, saving the customer and afterwards outputting a custom success page in your extensions controller


I think this can be easier achieved, when just adding a url rewrite for


and so on to whatever page you want them forwarded.
