    I have created "clients" role. When a user associated with that role logs in to the website, I want to show him a certain page. But instead the user is taken to the administration dashboard. What am I doing wrong?

    Hello Julia Shah,

    To redirect users according to the role they are in, you should make a little modification to the login page located under the Sitefinity folder. A code change for the Login1_Authenticate method similar to the one below should do the work:

    void Login1_Authenticate(object sender, AuthenticateEventArgs e)  
        e.Authenticated = UserManager.Default.ValidateUser(this.Login1.UserName, this.Login1.Password);  
        if (UserManager.Default.IsUserInRole(this.Login1.UserName, "testers"))  
            this.Login1.DestinationPageUrl = "Admin/Modules.aspx";  

    Here "testers" is a specific role for which it should redirect the user to the modules page.

    Best wishes,
