Try this,

Create a User Plugin for handling user types and redirect accoording to your requirement. you can use onUserAfterLogin. Details can be found here.

for redirecting just use.

$app = JFactory::getApplication();
$app->redirect('url starts with index.php');

Hope its helps..

  • i am using "Redirect on Login" components to re re-direct .Do you have any idea about this components? Commented Nov 3, 2014 at 5:36
  • No but once you wrote a plugin for this based on onUserAfterLogin then immediately redirect to your required pages will work fine for your requirement.

Several extensions are available at JED will allow you to do this. Both free and paid alternatives can be found.

You can redirect the users based on user group or access level, or on a per-user basis. There are also some plugins that handle failed login attempts.
