How To Auto Redirect Users After Logout In WordPress

This is a useful trick if you’re developing a website for client on WordPress and want to manually redirect users after logout of your WordPress website. By default, WordPress will redirect them to the login page of your website, but we can easily change it by adding following snippet to the current theme’s functions.php file:

function auto_redirect_after_logout(){
  wp_redirect( home_url() );

The above code snippet will redirect your users to the homepage of your website. You can also define a custom URL or external URL by adding the following snippet:

function auto_redirect_external_after_logout(){
  wp_redirect( '' );
