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 the functions.php does the trick:

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

Note - The above code works only on non-admin pages. To make this work 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 :)

It's really easy:

global $post;
$postid = $post->ID;

$log_out_me = wp_logout_url( get_permalink($postid) );

<a href="'<?php echo $log_out_me; ?>">Logout</a>

Now get_permalink() is out of the loop.

add_filter('logout_url', create_function(false, "return '" .  wp_logout_url(get_option("home")) . "';"));  

Or change home URL to current page URL.

    This callback would call itself in an infinite recursion. Please test your code before you post it.
