Redirect Registration Plugin for Joomla

Redirect Registration for Joomla

This is a simple plugin, that is created to redirect the users of a Joomla site from default registration page to Jomsocial registration page. To be able to work perfectly, the plugin needs prior installation of Jomsocial in your Joomla site. This plugin only works with Joomla version 1.6/1.7 with Jomsocial installed. This plugin will be helpful if you want to register users only from a single registration page using Jomsocial. Otherwise, there will be two different registration pages in your Joomla site.

Click on the link below to download the plugin:

Updates in V1.1

  1. Add Jomsocial Itemid
    Itemid preserves the module positions, templates, access control (acl), sef URL etc. If you have created the menu link for Jomsocial, then you will get an Itemid. Add it here. Leave blank if you don’t have it. Add numeric value only. This only works if SEF links are enabled.
    If you want to know more about Itemids in Joomla, here is a good post. Check this also.
    You can add Itemid from the plugin  parameters on plugin page. If you don’t want to add Itemid, then leave the field blank.
  2. Redirect Joomla Login link to Jomsocial Login Page
    The Joomla has a default login page (except the module). If you want to redirect the default Joomla login to Jomsocial login page, then you can enable this feature from the plugin parameters. This feature is turned off by default.


There are other plugins to do this job for Joomla 1.5, however there are not for Joomla 1.6/1.7. So I created this plugin. If you find this plugin helpful, then please leave some good review on JED. Thanks.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    Thank you so much for this! I’ve been hacking everything because I couldn’t find a simple redirector that worked consistently for all components.

    While I install and enable the Plugin, I got the redirected URL with ‘&’ not ‘&’, thus the web cannot be opened:

    the site is running with:
    Joomla 1.7.3
    Joomsocial 2.4.1

  3. Far Young says:

    OK, I resolved this problem, with base64_encode and base64_decode, as below:
    // Redirect to the jomsocial registration page
    $link = JRoute::_(base64_encode(‘index.php?option=com_community&view=register’ . $itemid));
    $app->redirect(base64_decode($link), null, true, false);

    thanks your good work!
