[Resolved] Register page as my home page

  • drmikelbrown


    Hello All,

    I have seen on websites bp sites where the sites home page is the register page i.e. . In reading the forums this weekend I came across posts that suggested that I could accomplish this task with adding custom slugs to the wp-config.php. So I added:

    define ( ‘BP_REGISTER_SLUG’, ‘home’ );

    After clearing my cookies and viewing my site I still have the old index.php for my home page. Am I missing something? Can some one help me please. Thanks

    BTW. My site is wp 3.5.1 bp 1.3 (the one before 1.5)

    There are different ways to do this.

    Do you have a bp-custom.php file in your plugins directory?

    If so, try adding this to it:

    `// Redirect logged out users viewing homepage to register page.
    function custom_redirect_home_to_register() {
    global $bp;

    // If user is not logged in and viewing front page
    if (!is_user_logged_in() && bp_is_front_page() ) {
    // Redirect to registration page. Change /register to your register page slug
    bp_core_redirect( get_option(‘home’) . ‘/register’ );

    add_action( ‘wp’, ‘custom_redirect_home_to_register’, 3 );`

    If not, create the file and include an opening php tag before adding that code. This uses basic conditionals and can be customized however you’d like.



    @David thanks this worked perfectly. I was trying a bunch of different redirects but I keep getting caught in a redirect loop. Thanks this helped a whole lot.
