I'm a little confused by the post, but you can edit the hidden input field to set the redirect to any page you want. I generally find this the quickest way to deal with the login form.

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

You can find this in the form html, or add it.

Sorry for my bad english..
I try to explain better. Inside home page I want a login form reserved to a particular user that can see other to reserved page of my site (a normal user can't see these two pages). I try to do this through login widget. the problem is that login widget seems likn to login module to enter in my cms so if I try to implement this it saies me that I login yet.
My question is: I must create 2 new form for my login without the use of login widget?
