Redirecting Wordpress's Login/Register page to a custom login/registration page


Question

I have a website, with a user system. I want to integrate wordpress's user system into that website's, but I still want to use the website's register/login pages. I don't want anybody to be able to login or register using Wordpress's login or registration forms. Instead, when they're try to access the login/registration pages in Wordpress, I want those pages to redirect them to my own login/registration pages.

Is there any way of doing this? I've tried Google, but all I could find was redirection AFTER the user logs in or registers, which is not what I want.

Thank you in advance.

Accepted Answer

For this you need to redirect login/registration page to your custom pages. So, Write this code in your functions.php file Under your activated theme folder. Pass your custom page path as a Argument.

 add_action('init','possibly_redirect');

function possibly_redirect(){
 global $pagenow;
 if( 'wp-login.php' == $pagenow ) {
  wp_redirect('http://google.com/');
  exit();
 }
}

To restrict direct access only for 'wp-login.php', without POST or GET request (useful for custom ajax login forms), I use the advanced function:

function possibly_redirect(){
  global $pagenow;
  if( 'wp-login.php' == $pagenow ) {
    if ( isset( $_POST['wp-submit'] ) ||   // in case of LOGIN
      ( isset($_GET['action']) && $_GET['action']=='logout') ||   // in case of LOGOUT
      ( isset($_GET['checkemail']) && $_GET['checkemail']=='confirm') ||   // in case of LOST PASSWORD
      ( isset($_GET['checkemail']) && $_GET['checkemail']=='registered') ) return;    // in case of REGISTER
    else wp_redirect( home_url() ); // or wp_redirect(home_url('/login'));
    exit();
  }
}
add_action('init','possibly_redirect');
