Login Redirect

Hi there.

The situation I have here is I am creating a subdomain for every blogger who sign up for the service, such as

Main Site: webdomainname.com
User1 will get user1.webdomainname.com
User8 will get user8.webdomainname.com
etc...

From the main site where the user will be able to login, I will want user1 or userxx to get redirected directly to their web page, user1.webdomainname.com.

Please kindly advice if this is what this plugin is meant for, and if not, please advice how do I achieve this.

Thank you.

Best Regard
Bill

    Greetings Bill,

    Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    Yes this is the correct plugin to be using for redirecting after login.

    Alternatively, you could code up a solution to automatically redirect upon login, perhaps add to your theme's functions.php file, using the following:

    Hi there.

    Great to hear from you. Unfortunately it is not really working. I see this configuration page on the network administrator page. Because what I need is something dynamic, I cannot put in a static referred page there. Please kindly advice.

    Thank you.

    Best Regards
    Bill

    Hi Bill!

    Here was the solution I made.

    In the plugins/login-redirect folder there is a file login-redirect.php

    Edit the file on line 62 -> function redirect
    Insert this line above:
    global $user_login;

    Where you have: (Appear 2 times)
    $login_redirect_url = get_site_option( 'login_redirect_url' );

    Change for this: (Appear 2 times)
    $login_redirect_url = 'http://'.$user_login.'.webdomainname.com/' ;

    Save and upload.

    Best regards,
    Lucas
