I am very new to wordpress and I don't know anything yet. I have a custom registration page which works well, but after registration doesn't do any thing and user has to manually go to his profile via menu on top of the page! I want to automatically redirect to his profile page after registration. how can i do that?

thank you

You have to use the registration_redirect hook, add this into your theme's functions.php

function wpse_registration_redirect() {
    return home_url( '/page' );

add_filter( 'registration_redirect', 'wpse_registration_redirect' );

    Note that add_filter are great ways to modify how WP works. As a person new to WP, and if you are interested in modifying how things work in WP, start here: developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/add_filter . As to which filter to look at, you can usually get a hint by looking at the code that runs a particular page. Another place to learn about filters: docs.presscustomizr.com/article/… . Many choices if you ask the googles. Aug 20, 2018 at 22:45
  • Indeed Rick, cool resource. Aug 20, 2018 at 22:46
  • Thank you, but I don't know why non of these filters do not work out!

  • Deactivate all the plugins and check again, if it works, it is a plugin that is blocking it by mistake, if you find the plugin and it's really important and cannot be replace it, show us the code of your custom registration page so we can find a work around. Aug 20, 2018 at 23:04
  • Depends on where you are putting your code. It needs to be in functions.php file. Best to put it in a Child Theme, as putting it in the current theme's folder will cause your changes to go away on a theme update. So: use a Child Theme, put your function in the function.php in your Child Theme folder, then activate the Child Theme. If you are not using a Child Theme, you should: codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes . You could also put it in your own plugin, but that's a bit more advanced. For leaning: look in the Codex for how templates work, and more. Lots of good info there to help. Aug 20, 2018 at 23:58
