I'm looking for a function that can redirect users when they logout to the current page. I'm looking for a code I can use in functions.php?

Using this code in functions.php does trick for me.

function wpse_44020_logout_redirect($logouturl, $redir)
        return $logouturl . '&redirect_to='.get_permalink();
add_filter('logout_url', 'wpse_44020_logout_redirect', 10, 2);

Note - Above code work only on non admin pages, to make work that on any page you should replace

return $logouturl . '&redirect_to='.get_permalink();


return $logouturl . '&redirect_to=http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

Have a look here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_logout_url

Easy as adding this:

<a href="<?php echo wp_logout_url( get_permalink() ); ?>" title="Logout">Logout</a>

I need it for the function-file. Not as a link, but thanks for the try :) – Demilio Mar 1 '12 at 13:05
     add_filter('logout_url', create_function(false, "return '" .  wp_logout_url(get_option("home")) . "';"));  

or change home url to current page url

Please add some context to this answer - how does it add substance to what amit said a few months back? – Johannes Pille Apr 11 '13 at 6:01
This callback would call itself in an infinite recursion. Please test your code before you post it. – toscho Apr 11 '13 at 6:16
