I am new to drupal So I want to redirect the user based on login Say, if there is an Anonymous user, he will be redirected to specific page, and if is an Authorized user along with login id and password, then he will be redirected to other specific page using script

  • In which condition, you want to redirect user? Like, you want to redirect user on form submit or viewing any page? Jan 23, 2014 at 5:49

Simply implement hook_preprocess_page() in template.php file and add your business logic: example

function MY_THEME_preprocess_page(&$variables) {
  if(CONDITION /* additional condition, e.g. $variables['is_front'] */) {
    if(user_is_anonymous()) {
      drupal_goto('node/13'); //change the url, with yours
    else {
      drupal_goto('node/7'); //change the url, with yours

if you are implementing this hook for the first time then you need to flussh the cache.


Use Rules module and create redirect rules.
