How to get Sign Up tab to go directly to wp-signup.php? (4 posts)

    I'm missing something here. I know this should be very easy. I see how a link is made to go directly to wp-signup.php. I want a tab for signup (much like If I make a page, the sign up tab is made, but if I try to make a link to the wp-signup.php file in the textarea box, I get a page showing the link to wp-signup.php. I want to be presented with the signup form from pressing the tab. I would assume I'm supposed to leave that textarea empty, but I don't see any option to directly link to a page. My link address is which is what I would expect. I see on the address is, a folder for signup. I've been in and out of the theme files, made a custom page template. I'm not afraid to fiddle. But shouldn't there be something in the backend page creator to do this? Thanks for all assistance.

    No, there isn't.

    Why not just go into your file manage, edit your theme template directly, and... add a tab to the nav bar?

    It's probably another list item, and hardcode the link right in it.

    I'd just do a specific 301 redirect within your htaccess file.

    Redirect 301

    You could get fancy though and create a Page Template for your home theme. Use the Template for your 'signup' Page within blog #1 but have the file contain the header information to have it get picked up by wp as a Page Template as well as:

      header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");

    That's the sneaky way of doing it. ;)

    Thanks for such promptness. I'm going to look into both of these. Just thought there was something I was missing in the admin backend. You guys are great!
