UPME Redirect Settings
Introduction to Redirect Settings
Redirect settings allows you to override default URL and redirect to a custom URL in certain scenarios, related to UPME functionality. Following screenshot previews the redirection settings section with default values.
Let’s take a look at each of those redirection settings and their functionality within UPME.
Redirect Backend Profiles
Main purpose of using UPME is to enable frontend profiles, registration and login. So most of you will not want your users to use the backkend profile. In such cases, you can disable the backend profile by enabling this setting. Users who tries to access backend profile will be redirected to frontend profile. However, admin will always have access to the backend profiles. UPME frontend and backend profiles are not identical. You will get more features in frontend compared to backend. You will not get the features such as image uploads, image cropping, profile tabs and many other information in backend profiles. So we recommend enabling this setting and redirect backend profiles to frontend profiles, unless you have a specific requirement to use backend profiles.
Redirect Backend Login
This is similar to what we explained in Redirect Backend Profiles section. Once UPME is activated, you have access to UPME login as well as default WordPress backend login. However, these 2 options are not identical. UPME verifies more conditions before allowing users to login. If you use both logins, some of your users might be able to skip the validations in UPME login by using WordPress backend login. So we recommend enabling this setting and redirect users to UPME login screen to prevent any conflicts and take advantage of all the features of UPME..
Redirect Backend Registrations
This setting is also similar to the previous 2 sections. Once UPME is activated, you have access to UPME registration as well as default WordPress backend registration. However, these 2 options are not identical. UPME verifies more conditions before allowing users to register. If you use both registration forms, some of your users might be able to skip the validations in UPME registration by using WordPress backend registration. So we recommend enabling this setting and redirect users to UPME registration screen to prevent any conflicts and take advantage of all the features of UPME..
Redirect After Login
This setting is used to customize the redirection page after login.Setting this option to Default will automatically use any redirect specified in the URL, and will not prevent redirect_to set in shortcode option from working. If no redirect is found in the URL and redirect_to option is not set in shortcode option, the login page will simply be reloaded to welcome the logged in user. Users will be redirected to the page set here after successfully logging in.You may over-ride this setting for a specific login form by using the shortcode [[upme_login redirect_to="url_here"]]
Redirect After Registration
This setting is used to customize the redirection page after new user registration.Setting this option to Default will show the Register Success message instead of redirecting to a custom page. New users will be redirected to the page set here after successfully registering using the UPME registration form.You may over-ride this setting for a specific registration form by using the shortcode [[upme_registration redirect_to="url_here"]]
