I am using Theme My Login plugin to change the login page from "/wp-login.php" to "/login".

My question is how do I redirect a user that has already logged in so that visiting "/login" instead takes them to my homepage?

Note: I am not talking about the initial redirect after logging in, but rather if someone was to visit the login page again afterwards.

I saw a similar question was asked here: wp-login.php — redirect logged in users to custom URL

I tried using the code posted there, and changed it to:

function redirect_logged_in_user() 
{
    if( is_user_logged_in ) {
      wp_redirect('http://my_homepage_url');
    }
}

global $pagenow;
if( $pagenow == '/login')     
redirect_logged_in_user();

but it still does not work.

any help would be much appreciated.

cheers.

    add_action('wp', 'add_login_check');
function add_login_check()
{
    if ( is_user_logged_in() && is_page( [6070, 6072] ) ) {
        wp_redirect('http://my_homepage_url');
        exit;
    }
}

i took the code from here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/25992092

i then moved the "add_action('wp', 'add_login_check');" to the top and added another "is_page" (6070=login page ID, 6072=register page ID).

it seems to be holding up so far and allows me to log out.

is this code written well? would it be necessary to change anything?

  • the only issue with this code is that it's not generic. as you need to specify the id of the page. You can also use is_page with my solution in order to check if we are in the logout page or not – Temani Afif Oct 3 '17 at 20:26
  • yeh i noticed your code is not reliant on manually inputting the page IDs. i have carried out some further testing & it seems the above code is holding out, and since i don't need to add many page IDs (and don't want to take up any more of your time) i'll keep it the way it is. many, many thanks for your efforts mate, they are much appreciated. i voted your comment up and it said "Thanks for the feedback!

  • yes no problem ;) and you may consider manually input, it's not bad for a specfic solution, but since we are in site like this, it's better to highlight generic solution that may work for everyone, and maybe in one year someone will face the same issue and will find this page ;) – Temani Afif Oct 3 '17 at 20:48
  • well i'm happy to try more attempts if you are ;) – Tom Oct 4 '17 at 7:51

I advice you to try this, better to the action login_init:

add_action('login_init', 'redirect_logged_in_user');
function redirect_logged_in_user()
{
    global $action;

    /* if the user call logout and is not logged in we do nothing*/
    if ('logout' === $action || !is_user_logged_in()) {
        return;
    }

    /* we redirect logged in people*/
    wp_redirect('http://my_homepage_url');
    exit;
}
  • thanks for the reply. this seems to work with the "my_homepage_url/login" and "my_homepage_url/register" pages but it's also preventing me from logging out with "my_homepage_url/logout". how can it be changed to allow for logout? – Tom Oct 3 '17 at 17:59
  • you mean you cannot logout now ? – Temani Afif Oct 3 '17 at 18:02
  • yes. after adding the code you posted above it is making "my_homepage_url/logout" re-direct to homepage also, and keeps me logged in – Tom Oct 3 '17 at 18:11
  • updated my anwser, have a try please – Temani Afif Oct 3 '17 at 18:16
  • i have just tried the new code but it's still doing the same thing – Tom Oct 3 '17 at 18:22
