Support » Fixing WordPress » Different Homepage for logged in users

  • Hi,

    Before I explain my goal, let me just clarify that I’m NOT just trying to redirect my users to a different page once they log in. That would be easy with a plugin or some simple code.

    Here’s what I want to do:
    Logged out users type [ redundant link removed ] and they see a landing page with a slider, some text, etc (a landing page, explaining what the website is about and encourage them to sign up). Let’s call it Page A.
    If they go to a different page (Contact, for example) and then they click either the Home page or the logo, they go back to that landing page.

    Now they sign up (or if they already signed up, they log in) and once they do that, not only the first page is a completely different page (not the landing page), but both my Home button and the Logo, redirect them to another page, for example the Create New Event page. So basically Page A doesn’t exist anymore to logged in users and the Home button and the logo now redirect them to the Create New Event page. That becomes the “home page” so to speak.

    This is how Soundcloud works, for example, and many other websites.

    How can I do this?
    Please note that I’m not an expert and some language will probably be too technical for me, so please be kind hahaha

    Thank you so much!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • It’s much easier to show two different things on the same page than it is to change the link used in a menu or logo.
    There are plugins that provide a shortcode for showing things to logged in (or out) users. Or you can make a page template that shows different things depending on whether the user is logged in.

    Hi Joy!

    Thanks for your reply.
    Yes, I’m using a plugin to show some menu items to logged in or logged out users only.

    I guess I will just wait until I can transfer to a whole new framework instead of WordPress. It’s not a big deal anyway. I just wanted to make it look more appealing to the logged out users and then make that “landing page” invisible to logged in users. Not a big deal 🙂

    Thanks again! Have a great week! 🙂
