I have a site here...

If a user clicks on Submit an Event or Send an Article, they are re-directed to a 404 page because I have it set up to make the page private.

What I want to do is if the user is logged in, it goes to the correct page. But if the user isn't logged in, then they get directed to this registration page.

I don't see any way to do this withing the settings of Wordpress.

  • A plugin is fine if it does what I'm looking for. I've tried Redirect to login if not logged in but that redirects to log-in page, from the moment the user steps on the website. I want the user to be able to get to the site, but if they click on a protected link, they get re-directed to the registration/log-in page.

In that page's template, do something like...

    $redirect = get_permalink(1); // where this integer is id of registration page 
  • +1 but could be done much earlier. template_redirect hook for e.g.

  • I went to pages, and clicked on the "text" editor for that page, and input that above code, but it didn't work. Am I missing something? (I'm a noob with WP customizations)...

  • No. You're not going to solve this without writing some code. Sounds like you're just looking for a plugin, in which case I can't help you.

Then, you could try the Quick Page Post Redirect Plugin. Looking at the screenshots, it gives you rather granular functionality for redirection.
