Redirect Registration Plugin for Joomla

Redirect Registration 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:

Download Registration Redirect Plugin for Joomla 1.6/1.7/2.5


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.

    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.

  2. Far Young says:

    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!

    I have a question. I am using Joomla 2.5, Jomsocial, and JA Login.

    JA Login redirects to Jomsocial registration, but I get an error: “Empty solution not allowed.”

    Any suggestions?


  9. Josiah says:

    Awesome plugin. I’m wondering if I can redirect users to my frontpage with this plugin instead of to the jomsocial front page? If so, where would I find the necessary code to do this?

  10. Ahmad says:

    Is the reverse possible… to be able to redirect from Jomsocial registration to regular one?

  11. Giang Anh says:

    Thank you for your plugin. It’s great!

  12. TJ says:

    Once i installed this plugin, Jomsocial Stopped picking up content from the language files!
    How can i fix this?
    Please help


    • TJ says:

      Something went wrong with the Language file for jomsocial, not sure if it was this plugin (Though i dont see how it possibly could be)
      Sorry for my rash comment!

  13. Chris says:

    The current version has a problem. THe forgot username and forgot password functions do not work if this plugin is enabled.

  14. rocketero says:

    after redirecting my joomla regsitration to jomsocial, I am getting: “id of user not found” and I can not login to the site with any user.

  15. lovedigit says:

    First of all thankyou! for this great plugin. It really solved the issue.
    The official jomsocial redirect plugin mess up the cookies on the website. It disables the remember me function. This is the reason I am using “Redirect Registration plugin”.

    I have one problem. and it is a major one.

    The forgot password page is no longer working. Whenever a user enter the email address to reset their password and click on “submit” it redirects to the jomsocial registration page and nothing actually happens.

    It doesn’t send the verification code in the email.

    When I disable the plugin the “forgot password” page is working again. Please fix this issue!
