Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to add a dropdown menu on the login screen for your users to select the page they want to redirect after login? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to user controlled option WordPress login redirect.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

// Fields for redirect
function custom_login_fields() {
			<strong>Choose your location: </strong>
			<select name="login_location">
				<option value="">Select &hellip;</option>
				<option value="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>#banking">Banking</option>
				<option value="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>#insurance">Insurance</option>
				<option value="<?php echo get_permalink(2); ?>">Securities</option>
// Redirect function
function location_redirect() {
	$location = $_POST['login_location'];
// Add fields to the login form
// Make sure the redirect happens only if your fields are submitted
if ( (isset($_GET['action']) && $_GET['action'] != 'logout') || (isset($_POST['login_location']) && !empty($_POST['login_location'])) ) 
	add_filter('login_redirect', 'location_redirect', 10, 3);
