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.
I hope this helps someone else out there…
