I'm at a loss..

I wanna check the current users post count. If the post count is 1, the user should be redirected. I have tested the following code:

add_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_to_specific_page' );

function redirect_to_specific_page() {
$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    if (empty($the_user_id)) {
        $the_user_id = $current_user->ID;
    }
$user_post_count = count_user_posts( $the_user_id );

  if ( is_page('butiktest') && $user_post_count == 1 ) {

        wp_redirect( 'enhytte', 301 ); 

    exit;

    }

}

However, the above code will redirect no matter the amount of posts.

What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: After pointing out my syntax error was a missing "=", it is still not working.

EDIT 2: The code is in theory working, however, once a post is added, the user_post_count is not updated, and stays at the previous value.

EDIT3: count_user_posts only count published posts, how do I check for 'pending' and 'draft'?

    add_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_to_specific_page' );

    function redirect_to_specific_page() {
    global $post;

    $current_user = $post->post_author;

    if(!empty($current_user)){
    $user_post_count = (int) count_user_posts( $current_user );

       if ( is_page('butiktest') && $user_post_count == 1 ) {

            wp_redirect( 'enhytte', 301 ); 

            exit;

      }
   }        
   }

authorized user: $current_user = wp_get_current_user();

  • Haha, of course. Completely forgot that. However, it is still not working for some reason. If I change it to >= 1, the redirect is done all the time regardless of posts. == never redirects.. I am checking for a custom post type, should this type be specified somewhere maybe?

  • is_page('butiktest') works correctly? Check out: var_dump(is_page('butiktest'), $user_post_count);

  • Not sure if I did it correctly, but on the frontpage, the values are: bool(false) string(1) "2", this is on a user with 1 post. Once I click the button, where the redirection should happen, the values become: bool(true) string(1) "2". I was expecting an integer and not a string?

  • you $user_post_count is 2 and that you check == 1.

  • If I change the value to 2, it comes with a PHP error in some of the theme files. Should it not be an integer and not a string?

You simply have a typo, should be:

$user_post_count == 1
