Redirecting after login and registration ONLY IF coming from a product page


I have a digital download site running on WordPress/WooCommerce that requires users to be logged in to buy products. There is a login/register button displayed for logged-out users instead of the ‘Buy’ button on product pages as seen here: I’m trying to redirect users after they’ve logged in or registered back to the previous page but only if that previous page was a product page.

Here is the code I’m currently using which saves the referring URL and then executes a redirect. The redirect works but, I’m trying to limit it to only redirect if the referer URL was a product page (


Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, /JJ


Thanks for all the responses! This is what we ended up with:

I was receiving some critical errors – Idan helped me create a cleaner script and implemented the registration form actions too!

// Hide Add to Cart for logged out users
add_action( 'init', 'creatorcabin_hide_price_add_cart_not_logged_in' );
function creatorcabin_hide_price_add_cart_not_logged_in() {   
   if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {      
      remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_add_to_cart', 30 );

// Add Login to Buy button for logged out users
add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'creatorcabin_user_logged_out_disable_add_to_cart', 30 );
function creatorcabin_user_logged_out_disable_add_to_cart() {
   if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {  
    $parameter = (is_singular("product")) ? '?product_page=1&my_page_id=' . get_the_ID() : '';
    echo '<div class="login-to-buy-box"><h4 style="color: #E67E22;">Login to buy!</h4><p style="color: black;">Login or Sign Up for free to unlock the buy button and gain access to your downloads! <a href="/learn/using-our-website/why-do-i-need-an-account-to-buy-stuff/" target="_blank><p style="font-style: italic;">Why do I need an account to buy stuff?</p></a><a href="/my-account' . $parameter . '"><div class="user-bought-singleproduct">Login / Register ></div></a></div>';

// Referer
add_action( 'woocommerce_login_form_end', 'creatorcabin_actual_referer' );
function creatorcabin_actual_referer() {
   $product_page = (isset($_GET['product_page'])) ? $_GET['product_page'] : 0;
   $page_id = (isset($_GET['my_page_id'])) ? $_GET['my_page_id'] : 0;
   echo '<input type="hidden" name="product_page" value="' . $product_page . '" /><input type="hidden" name="my_page_id" value="' . $page_id . '" />';

//Login redirect
function custom_login_redirect($redirect) {
    if (isset($_POST['my_page_id']) && isset($_POST['product_page']) && intval($_POST['product_page']) === 1) {
        $redirect = get_permalink($_POST['my_page_id']);
    return $redirect;
add_filter('woocommerce_login_redirect', 'custom_login_redirect', 10, 1);

// Action and Filter for Registration form
add_action( 'woocommerce_register_form_end', 'creatorcabin_actual_referer' );
add_filter('woocommerce_registration_redirect', 'custom_login_redirect', 10, 1);

why don’t you just add a query arg to the link on product pages?

okay, so without going into too much detail as I’m tired and somewhat inebriated and can’t be trusted around semicolons right now:

I would use to set up the hrefs for my login links. You’ll notice that the function comes with:
a: an optional argument for passing the url that the user should be referred to after login
and b: a filter hook called ‘login_url’ that you can use to hijack the process and apply your own logic in.

also wordpress comes with a function conveniently called ‘add_query_arg’ which does exactly what it says on the tin. (

so if i were to set up some php that would return that string on a product page I’d do something like this:

$refer_to_url = get_permalink(get_the_ID()); //get current post/page permalink
$refer_to_url = add_query_arg('is_product_page', true, $refer_to_url); //add arguments to that url.
$this_login_url = wp_login_url($refer_to_url);

then I’d probably try and set up a filter that would change the referring url to e.g. the user’s account page if is_product_page is not true.

you may also have to register the queryvar using

add_filter( 'query_vars',  function ( $qvars ) {
    $qvars[] = 'is_product_page';          
    return $qvars;

otherwise wordpress might refuse to process the query var.

hope that helps.
