I am trying to create a site so members can login and download files from private pages, with out access to the Admin CMS, I have 2 user groups one "administrator" and the other "users".

my problem comes when trying to login as a user, I am using $loginForm on my site home page template. But the users under "users group" are unable to login and only administrators group are able to login, is this because $loginForm redirects to admin area, because if I login as admin and switch user to a user in the users group it works.

so is it possible to create a login form that does not redirect to admin cms , but just the homepage instead?

Thanks in advance

There are some things you can do...

1) Ask users to goto - this will not redirect anywhere upon login... so they would be free to choose where to go after the system lists them as logged in.

2) put the following in your _config.php - Security::set_default_login_dest('myurlsegment');

Hope this helps,
