On my webshop I don't want the customers to use the customer dashboard. I'm looking for a simple way(for a non-developer) to redirect to a custom CMS page.

Therefore when the customers signs in I want to transfer them to a page named employee-logged-in.html. Is there any easy way to do that?

No, the only thing Magento does by default is to redirect the user to the previous page or to the customer dashboard. This setting is in Admin->System->Configuration->Customer Configuration->Login Options->Redirect Customer to Account Dashboard after Logging in.

If you want something else but you're not a developer, use an extension: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/customer-redirect-after-login-1.html http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/custom-login-redirect.html http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/custom-login-redirect-pro.html


Magento has a builtin functionality to let you specify WHERE you should be redirected after the login. Please read this link You should set the Admin->System->Configuration->Customer Configuration->Login Options->Redirect Customer to Account Dashboard to NO and then in the login form add an hidden input field named "referer_url"

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('customer.form.login.extra')?>
<form action="<?php echo $this->getPostActionUrl() ?>" method="post" id="login-form">
    **<input type="hidden" name="referer_url" value="employee-logged-in.html"/>**
    <div class="col2-set">

the code above was from default template/customer/login.phtml you shoudl be able to modifiy it even if you are not a "programmer".
