Add-On Type(s)



Redirect visits to your control panel home page to any other page within your control panel.

I’ve always found the EE control panel home page confusing for my clients, and usually the first thing in my instructions is sending them to a certain tab—often the one for the Structure module, but sometimes the publish or edit pages as well.

This extension allows you to redirect the home page to the control panel page of your choice, so your users will see exactly what you want them to see upon logging in (or clicking the CP Home link in the header). The settings work just like those of the “New Tab” page – type in the query string of the control panel page you want to redirect to, save your settings, and you’re done!

Hooks Used
