Redirect customer from page X to Y if logged in


I’ve seen a similar question on these forums, but not quite what I’m looking for. And I don’t know enough about php to fiddle around with it to get exactly what I want.

I’m looking for a solution to redirect already logged in users, customers to my woocommerce site specifically, from page X to Y. So not when logging in but when they are already logged in.

The homepage of my site is URL/login but I don’t want already logged in users to be able to visit this page but I want them to be sent from or URL/login to URL/account.

Perhaps even URL/wp-admin, because customers will then go to URL/account and admins will go to the WordPress dashboard.

Hope somebody can help me with this.

    Hey Jude,

    We meet again! :smile:

    Thanks for mentioning the plugin. Unfortunately that doesn’t really do the trick. It will only set a redirect for when a user logs in and any future log ins.

    But what I’m looking for is a way do redirect a user who is already logged in. Non-logged in users should be able to visit page X, but already logged in users should not, and be redirected to page Y.

    Hi again Wouter

    Hope all is well with you too, glad to meet again and sorry about the delay !

    This will need a bit of code to do perfectly, not sure if a plugin can do it out of the box. Take a look at the code below.

    function n2313_redirect_signup() {
    global $pagenow;

    if ( site_url('page1') == $pagenow ) {

    if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
    wp_redirect( site_url('page1') );

    add_action( 'init', 'n2313_redirect_signup', 500 );

    Replace page1 and page2 with your own urls and you should be set

    Thanks for the code. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me (there was no ‘page2’ in your code by the way, but twice a ‘page1’ but that’s not why).

    Perhaps because of some other redirections I’ve got going on the site, I don’t know.

    But the good news is, I’ve managed to achieve what I wanted by changing the homepage and sending logged in users from page X (the homepage) to page Y. And because of that non-loggedin users are automatically sent to page Y. Don’t know if you can follow me :smile:, but I fixed it.

    Thanks again!
