Support » Networking WordPress » individual MU Registration Page possible?

  • I run WP as MU and changed my Theme on the MainBlog.
    My Problem is I´ve got a startpage with a big header Image. And subthemes with much smaler header background. The registration page seem to use the start side by default. Can I change this or is it possible to make individual registration page? I´ll be happy for every hint.

    Thanx cy

  • Registration must be handled by the MainBlog. But it can be duped using template files in your theme.

    Here’s basically what I did to create my own signup page
    Create a page template in your MainBlog theme dir.

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Signup
    */
    //the rest is for the most part a copy'n paste of wp-signup.php
    // require( dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-load.php' ); becomes require( ABSPATH . '/wp-load.php' );
    // get_header();  // or copy the contents of header.php here and tinker so the signup gets a different header than the rest
    // action="wp-signup.php" becomes action="/signup/"
    ?>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?> // I wanted the sidebars on the signup page
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    ?>

    Create a new page for your Mainblog, title it Signup and apply the new page template to it.

    Finally add the following to your mu-plugins dir to redirect requests for the old wp-signup:

    function ds_my_signup_page() {
    	$page = 'http://myblog.network.tld/signup/';
    	return $page;
    }
    add_filter( 'wp_signup_location', 'ds_my_signup_page' );
    
    if( strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'wp-signup.php'))
    wp_redirect('signup/');

    I suppose you would also have to remove the following from the signup page template (and edit the action urls to point at a subblog/signup/) thus allowing you to handle registrations from a blog other than the main blog but I haven’t done that in my install.

    if ( !is_main_site() ) {
    	wp_redirect( network_home_url( 'signup/' ) );
    	die();
    }

    the registration page uses the theme on the main site, yes.

    I´m still trying to set up another page as a sign up page. But did not succeed at least. To Andrea_r the answer is YES.

    Thanks for every answer till now.

    Yes, you can also use a page template to make a signup page, and /or add some styling to your theme to use the classes spit out by the signup page.

    But it’s still on the main blog. 😉

    Okay I´m still fighting with this topic.
    Let me describe what I did do and maybe I can help other soulmates with an solution.
    First I tried the solution David gave me in this post.
    If I use this code

    function ds_my_signup_page() {
    	$page = 'http://mydomain/signup/';
    	return $page;
    }
    add_filter( 'wp_signup_location', 'ds_my_signup_page' );
    
    if( strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'wp-signup.php'))
    wp_redirect('signup/');

    I get an Error

    The Errormessage is
    function ds_my_signup_page() { $page = 'http://mydomain/signup/'; return $page; } add_filter( 'wp_signup_location', 'ds_my_signup_page' ); if( strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'wp-signup.php')) wp_redirect('signup/');

    If I don´t use it and link direkt to http://mydomain/signup/ it works fine.
    But I´m not shure whether it is is a mistake to do it so.
    @dave Please give me your suggestion.

    Then I tried this Tutorial

    And got this notice: “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘/’ in /var/www/web2/html/wp-content/themes/TheTheme_3.0/wp-signup.php on line 15”

    Line 15 is the line where I had to change the path:
    require( dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/wp-load.php’ );
    to
    require( ‘../../../wp-load.php’ );
    I tried require( ‘../../wp-load.php’ ); and require( ‘./wp-load.php’ );
    and every possibitity in between. With no success.

    Many thanks for your help

    If you just want the default signup form displayed in one of your pages, put a simple redirect at the end of your .htaccess file, like:
    Redirect 302 /sign-up/ http://domain.tld/wp-signup.php
    where /sign-up/ is a page that you created yourself and for which you can set the template to be used in the normal way. Use redirect 301 or 302 as you prefer.
