I wanted to redirect the new user sign up to a specific page and not the main site URL. I was frustrated in the process at first; however, really enjoyed the flexibility of Language Overrides in Joomla. I read a couple of articles and just didn’t get it till I read this post and went through the process.
Of course Joomla documentation on this is a good read as well.
I was using a Gantry template and in order to get the process to look the way I wanted it I needed to revise my .yaml file for the home page, and move the default “Message” and “Content” particles to a new layout.
When the user got to the screen where they needed to change their password, and changed it I wanted to redirect them back the employee portal page. The following article helped me figure this out.
I ended up changing the “<joomla-root>/components/com_users/controllers/profile.php” line 225. I set the URL to the NON-Search Engine friendly link. The line ended up changing from
“$redirect = ‘index.php?option=com_users&view=profile&user_id=’ . $return;”
“$redirect = ‘index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=19&Itemid=149’;”, which was the page for the portal.
I hope this helps someone else out there…
