#1239 closed enhancement (fixed)

wp-login.php does not allow redirect_to on logout

When logging in with wp_login.php it is possible to pass a redirect_to parameter to control the page the user gets after login. There is no corresponding way to control the page the user gets after logout. This is a request to implement the redirect_to parameter for logout. Thank you!

Uses similar code to the 'login' redirect_to parameter to accept and use a redirect_parameter on logout.

It also fixes issue 1240, as both issues were related to the same general "login/logout form on the public blog that shoves you back to the page you were viewing after login/logout" idea by io_error.

This makes sense, but not in the same way as logging in does. If you were on admin page X and click log out, there's no point in being redirected back to X as you're now logged out and can't view that page. Actually, redirecting back to X would bounce you back to the log in page, so there'd be no net effect.

However, if the redirect_to parameter pointed to a non-admin page, such as the blog home page, this would make sense. Personally, i think we should always redirect back to the blog home after logging out. The current situation, the login screen displayed immediately after logging out, is useless: they've just logged out, why would they then immediately log back in again?
