User Redirection Guide - ProfilePress

User Redirection Guide

When ProfilePress is installed and activated, the custom pages it creates for login, registration and password reset are automatically set as WordPress default. Thus when users visit the following URLs:

  • http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php
  • http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php?action=register
  • https://profilepress.net/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

They will be redirected to the page containing the custom login, registration and password reset form created by ProfilePress.

An example: click https://profilepress.net/wp-login.php and you will be redirected to the website custom login page.

To alter these pages settings, click the Settings ProfilePress menu and go to the Global Settings section.

 

User Redirections

To redirect users to a custom page or URL after they log in and log out, select the pages or enter the URL in Redirection section and save.

Note: URL entered into the custom URL field takes precedence over a selected page.

Custom Redirections

You can also set custom redirect per login and registration shortcodes via the redirect attribute.

For example, a custom login page with the shortcode below will redirect users to the URL https://xyz.com/welcome after they are logged in.

[profilepress-login id="2" redirect="https://xyz.com/welcome"]

Similarly, a registration page with the shortcode below will log users in and redirect them to the https://xyz.com/welcome after they successfully create an account.

[profilepress-registration redirect="https://xyz.com/welcome"]

 
If you don’t want users to be logged in before the redirect happens, change “redirect” to “no-login-redirect” like so:

[profilepress-registration no-login-redirect="https://xyz.com/welcome"]

How about if you wish to redirect unregistered or non-logged-in users to your website login page when they try to access a post or page; use the following shortcode on the said post or page.

[pp-redirect-non-logged-in-users]

 
If you want them redirected to a custom URL, use the shortcode like so:

[pp-redirect-non-logged-in-users url="http://yourwebsite.com/custom-url-slug"]

To redirect only logged in users to a custom URL, use the following shortcode:

[pp-redirect-logged-in-users url="http://yourwebsite.com/custom-url-slug"]

Remember, if the user isn’t logged in, no redirection will occur. And omitting the url attribute will cause the user to be redirected to the login page.
