I’ve got Enable After login Redirection: selected, and then I’m putting an url in Pages Settings or Membership Level Settings or both, but users are still directed to the homepage after login.
What else should I check?
Thanks!November 9, 2010 at 12:25 am #26262
By default it doesn’t redirect after login. So if it’s redirecting to the homepage then somewhere you have probably specified the home page to be the after login page. Take out all the “After Login” page from the membership level and only leave the pages settings one to test it. Please double check that the “Enable After login Redirection” checkbox is checked also.
Make sure to read the following documentation:

OK my redirect works to go to the page but if a member does not log out and they click on the login link again, they get the information about their name, their membership status etc.
I would like this information to be on my member area page and not the login link page.
I’ve seen where you have this in a widget on a video but it hasn’t been explained how to put the info there.
What I want when a member is logged in and doesn’t log out, that if they click on my main navigation login in link, they will be taken immediately to my member-area page.
As it stands now, they get the status information with no link to member area page as I have main navigation for my site and a separate navigation when they go into the member area.
It’s really unclear how the logged in member would get to my member area.January 12, 2011 at 8:38 pm #26264
Found out the name – eMember_logged_widget is what’s showing up if the member is still logged in.
I do not want this to show on Login Page if member is logged in but forgot to log out.
If this can’t be changed, how do I add another link which says “Go to Member Area” instead of just “Logout” or “edit Profile”.
Right now my members would be lost how to get into the member area.
BTW, figured out how to get the wp eMember login into the Member Area sidebar. Just move the WP eMember Login into the widget. Liked it better than the shortcode of their name and logout link.January 12, 2011 at 9:16 pm #26265
OK, I found where I put another link into the eMember_logged_widget. It works so hopefully members will not be confused when they are already logged in and click on my login menu link, go over to the login page and are faced with the eMember logged widget.
What I believe would be better solution is having the member be logged out automatically when they close their browser.
That way when they go to the login link page, they have to input their Username and password again so they are immediately taken to the Member Area Home page.
If there is something already in eMember could you point me in the right direction?

Go to the “Settings” -> “Pages Settings” tab of eMember and scroll to the “Login Widget Message” section. You can put links to your members area or any other message in this section which will show up in that login area where is shows the status of the logged in member.February 13, 2011 at 2:52 pm #26267nxadmonMember
Oh crap I just saw the option to enable/disable this in general settings of emember. I think it would make more sense to have this automatically work if a URL is present.February 14, 2011 at 4:06 am #26269
The option lets you stop the redirect in one click. You certainly don’t want to go and edit 50 membership levels (yes some people do have that many levels) and take out all the redirect URLs from there then realize you want to use them again in a few days time.February 17, 2011 at 7:21 pm #26270Lisa KanarekMember
I am having a similar problem. When I test this, I get a thank you e-mail that says I’ll get another e-mail with further directions. Then I get an e-mail that tells me to register. After I register, I get a link to log in. After I log in, nothing happens. Aren’t I supposed to be directed to the membership page?
Note: I’ve checked the enable transaction result display button and have added the code to my thank you page: [wp_eStore_transaction_result:end]
I can’t figure this out. Please help.February 18, 2011 at 3:19 am #26271
Do you have the “Enable After login Redirection” option checked in the settings menu of eMEmber?
Do you have a value in the “After Login Page” field under the “Pages/Forms settings” page of eMember?August 9, 2017 at 9:56 pm #26272syakobanMember
I have been setting up WP eMembers – Settings v9.2.1 and the documentation and forum have been really helpful. I’m at the very last stage and I cannot make it work.
I too can’t get the redirect after log-in to go anywhere. I checked off the “Enable After login Redirection:” box, entered the full URL of the redirect page, saved, and it doesn’t change. To test, I tried leaving the field for the redirect page blank, saving, and then reentering and saving and still no good.
Can someone tell me how to resolve this quickly?
BTW – the after logout redirection works fine.August 9, 2017 at 11:57 pm #26273adminKeymaster
I will jump on your site and take a look at your setup. I have sent you an email for it.
Update: Looks like an incorrect redirect URL was entered in the plugin configuration.August 10, 2017 at 3:42 pm #26274syakobanMember
Yes good find. I missed the second URL location. WP eMembers was not the problem.
