    I searched for an answer but only found older threads pointing me to a plugin that hasn’t been updated since early last year.

    Is there a reason BuddyPress has frontend login and registration but will take users to the dashboard once they activate their emails?

    Is there a way to remove dashboard access and/or redirect users to their profile after account activation?

    I added these lines to my theme settings to remove WordPress dashboard icons from the toolbar:

    #wp-admin-bar-wp-logo { display:none; }
    #wp-admin-bar-site-name { display:none; }

    @fkapnist the problem with hiding the icons is members can still access the dashboard by typing in the URL.

    Instead, you could do a redirect for non-administrators?

    @Mbonner,

    That same plugin that hasn’t been updated since early 2013 works superbly. It wasn’t updated because there’s absolutely nothing to update! It does such a basic task that doesn’t warrant any upgrades whatsoever. More so, there are some plugins that haven’t been updated since 2010 that are still working fine.

    Do a proper search in the BP plugins repo and as of the last count, there is a valid plugin that solves your issue.

    Utilise Better WordPress Security plugin to make your wp-admin inaccessible and this plugin to take care of ALL non-admin users:

    Hope this solves your problem.
