I think with a little hack you should be able to do this.

just open the and find the hidden input which has the id LoginWidget_BackURL

just update the value with the URL you prefer to redirect.

it should work in that way

but nothing change.
I have my login widget inside blog and when I log I return in blog page.
I sow in documentation how add login widget in a normal page (default widget are applied to blog) but I pass to this step if login widget behaviour change to my purpouse.

You need to change the value for the input.

Should look something like this:

<input type="hidden" id="backURL" name="BackURL" value="/new-page/" />

Sorry but don't work.
When I log out, I log out not only from my page but also from my CMS.
I need to esc only from my page..Login widget is applies to my home page to ente in a reserved page (page 1) so when I log out I must return to homepage

Yes, logging out will also log you out of your admin session. They're both the same. Would probably get complex to edit different ones.

You asked how to redirect a user after logging in, which we showed you. If you now want to redirect a user after logout, I'm not too sure to be honest. I don't believe there is anything by default. When you logout, it redirects you back to the page you were on.

This is handled in /sapphire/security/security.php and other files in that directory.

Might want to look at editing/extending that I suppose, unless there is an easy way, like setting the value of a hidden input that I'm not aware of.
