Is it possible to redirect users to a URL after they’ve registered? At the moment, the plugin seems to swap the Registration form and displays the following message:
"Registration Complete! Please Login"
That really messes with the formatting and wording on the page. Ideally, I’d like to automagically send the user to another page. In theory, this could be their Members area dashboard/panel… or even send them to an upsell before they even Log in.
Anyway, this “Redirect after Registration” (not login) would be very useful. Ideally, a field in the Membership Level would provide greater flexibility (as it would mean different levels could redirect to different places).
Any work arounds or tweaks that I can use to implement this?

Oh… similarly, is it possible to redirect users to another page after they’ve signed up using the
Again, this is useful because it means an Admin can then tell the user what to expect next (i.e. Please check your email / junk / spam folder).
I also noted that if a user registers using the
free_rego_with_email_confirmation]shortcode, they’re already added and stored in the system even before they’ve confirmed by clicking the confirmation email link.
If you think about it like a “double opt-in”, then really nothing should be stored until they’ve agreed that the site can store their information. With the system the way it is, anyone could sign any Tom, Dick or Harry up and their email and information would be in the system.
I like to think of the Registration Confirmation email a bit like these double opt-ins – the user is responsible for making a choice to have their details stored when they click the link. Right now, they have no choice!
It also means that, if they don’t complete their registration (forgot to do it) and try to re-register, then the system won’t allow them to. They just haven’t picked out a WordPress Username and Password yet.
Any chance of tweaking this? I’m not sure what the legalities are surrounding this area… If you notice, Aweber do this thing of flagging up who’s confirmed their subscription who’s awaiting confirmation. Would be useful to know this type of information on the Members screen.

I’ve also just realised that – even if the
[free_rego_with_email_confirmation]shortcode is used – there’s nothing stopping anonymous and random people from gaining access by going to the Registration page directly (if they know where to go).
This bypasses the need to confirm users with their email addresses (double opt-in), which kind’ve makes using the
[free_rego_with_email_confirmation]shortcode a little redundant. The whole point of using it is to ensure that users are email verified and are the person requesting membership.
Any chance of restricting this?
A Registration flow, something like this would be good:
- User lands on the “Join” page and see the
- User enters their Name and Email
- User is sent and email and asked to “Confirm / Verify”
- User clicks the email link and goes to the Registration page.
- On the Registration page:
- If there is a query string, display Registration form
- If there is NO query string, display
Might need some form of checkbox on the Settings page so Admins can force this functionality to work (e.g. “Use Confirmation Registration” checkbox).
Anyway… just a thought. Sorry – I tend to think through these things a bit too much…

Hi, I would also like to be able to redirect new registrations to a different page other then the same page. Any easy way to do this? I did not see an option in the eMember settings. I am using version 6.8.7
I would like to do this so I can have ggogle analytics track goals for “completed” registrations.
Thanks, DdeoSeptember 8, 2011 at 2:31 am #33961
We will look into adding a “After Registration Page” redirection option.September 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm #33962ddeoMember
Thank you!September 9, 2011 at 1:54 am #33963
We are going to add this today so if you download a build of eMember tomorrow you should get it.September 18, 2011 at 10:42 pm #33964trippMember

Did this feature gets built in? How do i set it? Cannot find it anywhere in the settings.April 16, 2012 at 1:10 am #33966
Yes, this has been added to the plugin. Look for the following option in the Pages/Forms settings menu of eMember plugin:
After Registration Page
There is also the following option that has been added to the plugin:
Enable Auto Login After Registration
You can enable the auto login after registration feature from the general settings menu of eMember.May 4, 2014 at 6:26 am #33967
Is there a work around to use After Registration Page and Enable Auto Login After Registration together?
If After Registration Page is member restricted page, you would get a warning to login to view so if you enable “Enable Auto Login After Registration” then you would see “After Login Page” even it is after the registration.
Is there any way to flag the plugin that auto login came from registration page so it should follow the “After Registration Page” url instead of “After Login Page”
Any help on this would be appreciated.May 4, 2014 at 9:56 am #33968
If you are enabling the auto login after registration then simply set the “After Login” page to the one that you were going to set for after registration. You can set the after login redirection on a per membership level too.May 4, 2014 at 12:59 pm #33969
I guess I was not clear enough. My problem is that the page that I would like to use is different.
The page I would like to redirect “After Login” is not same as “After Registration Page”.
My page “After Registration Page” is member only page so it would not work unless you login but if you login “After Login” page shows even I want to show “After Registration Page”.
I have enabled “auto login after registration” hoping it would redirect to “After Registration Page” but it treat same as “After Login”.
page “A” – member only page to be displayed right after the user signed up
page “B” – member only page to be displayed after login (not after the registration)
At the moment “B” would only show and I can’t have “A” to work even if I enable “Enable Auto Login After Registration” and “After Registration Page” url is configured.
Hope this makes senseMay 5, 2014 at 7:52 am #33970
Thank you for the explanation. I understand what you are after.
Whenever a login event happens (auto or manual), the after login page redirection will get triggered (this is the behavior everyone else expects).
What sort of content do you have in your after registration page? I am trying to understand why it needs to be login protected.May 5, 2014 at 11:01 am #33971
I have terms which is different among each member level and would rather not disclose these terms between each membership. So I’ve used which paragraph shows to which member…etc
My process is,
1. user register from registration page
2. customized ordering page (different to each membership level) shows up based on signed up memebership level
3. user agree and subscribe.
