Shortcodes: Custom registration and thank you pages

With WP WebinarSystem its possible to use your own 'registration' and 'thank you' pages. You can insert a shortcode on any place on your website which will display the registration form for your webinar.

To insert the shortcode on the page, click on the WP WebinarSystem icon in the text editor. Then select "registration form" and click on the webinar in which you want to list the registration form.

After you have selected the webinar you want to list on your page, there will be a shortcode inserted into your text editor. With this shortcode, you can adjust certain functionalities of the registration form. In this example, the following shortcode appears in my browser:

This is the default output, which basically says that it will show the registration form for the webinar with ID 237 (the ID of the webinar will be automatically inserted for you). If you leave the other parameters "URL" and "Button" in the shortcode empty, then it will behave like normal. After your website visitor has registered, he/she will stay on the same page, and there will be a 'thank you' message for signing up.

Custom button text

If you do adjust the shortcode, then you can add a button text and a URL. The button text is by default what you have configured as the text for the button on the default registration page. If for any reason, you want to show a different text message on the register button, then you can add this here.

Custom thank you page redirect

You can also adjust the shortcode by adding a URL to it. This will be the URL (link) where the website visitor will be redirected to after signing up. This can be a custom confirmation page where you say 'Thank you' for signing up. You can also redirect to an incentive; an upsell or any other form of redirect you think is necessary.

There is no styling on the output, so the form will adjust to the styling of your WordPress theme. You can also add your CSS.

If it's a recurring webinar, then you only will have to set this up once, and don't have to adjust the time of the recurring webinars manually. The date and timeslots of the webinar will be adjusted automatically within the registration form outputted by the shortcode.

Of course, it's also possible to use the shortcode with live webinars, but then you would have to remember to adjust the time/date for your webinar and the shortcode ID, so your custom registration page won't be outdated.

When you are working with a page builder plugin (for example - Visual Composer, Divi or Beaver Builder), it gives you the functionality to create awesome registration pages without any design skills. You only have to paste the shortcode(s) where you want the registration form to show up, and you are good to go!
