How can I redirect to /forum after login?

  • ccarlow


    New install of bbpress v2.7.5 on wordpress v4.2.2

    Question: How can I redirect to /forum after login? I have forum page set as a private page. bbpress forums need to be private and only accessed by registered users.

    I have searched for info on how to login/register and then redirect to a forum and haven’t been successful in finding a simple solutions. Some solutions look too complicated regarding writing code. I would assume there is a simple solution here.

    I have tried a redirect plugin (peter’s) and doesn’t work for bbpress users set with any bbpress role but does work if I login in as wp-admin with wp admin rights.

    Peter’s Login Redirect plugin should work for what you want to do.

    I am guessing since you are saying “forum page” and you made that private , that you created a page and put the forum index shortcode in it.

    Well since you chose to make that page private , it makes sense that Admin rights can only see it.

    What you should do is just redirect to and whatever forum you want private

    make the forum private by editing the forum and setting it to private there.



    Good guess! Sorry for the limited details but I wasn’t sure how or what to do to begin with. Your suggestion works perfectly and is all I need. Thanks for getting me on the right track! May the force be with you.

    And with you 🙂



    I think (correct me if I am wrong) you can use this snippet in your functions.php

    function login_redirect( $redirect_to, $request, $user ){
        return home_url('forums');
    add_filter( 'login_redirect', 'login_redirect', 10, 3 );

    I use this on my site and works good for me.
