Further to this previous question, https://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/1790/redirect-users-after-login-depending-on-the-users-roles I am trying to accomplish a similar redirect on a D7 whereby once a user with a specific role type has logged in, they are redirected to a homebox (using the Homebox module) page of 1 of 2 types (1 Teacher; 2 Student) and the homeboxes nodes are named accordingly: 1) teacherhomebox, 2) studenthomebox using URL aliases. I have been following Johan Falks tutorial http://vimeo.com/28804544 (many times now!) and thought I understood what appears to be a simple task, but after testing either of the said roles, my redirects do not show the relevant (after login) user homebox as the primary page and simply stays on my custom Panel 'landingpage' I have setup as the primary welcome site homepage. Of course they do log in and it shows their account link on the header (which I'll remove later) I'm not sure what or why the redirects are not working, maybe I've not put the correct account select in the Rules UI but FYI and for testing purposes (using a student role) the setup is as such:
Event: User has logged in
Condition: User has role(s) (parameter: Role= student, match=ANY)
Actions: Element: Page Redirect (parameter: URL: studenthomebox)
I have in the URL redirect Value, put "studenthomebox"
I would also like to add that I am trying to create a 'homebox' dashboard as per drupal.org and would be happy to acheive the same along with using the Rules module (with homebox) and would prefer to stay using Rules given the option.
Any help is very much appreciated as I'm after many hours, rather confused now.
