wordpress soft exit  [ 445 views ]

Goal: after the exit link click keep the focus on blog page with a simple refresh.

The exit link is generated by wp_loginout();. Put the generated link into an identified container like this.

<li class="wpexit"><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>

Catch the link object and override the click action (but only the logout action):

// exit link
$j('.wpexit a').on('click',function(){
  var h = ($j(this).attr('href'));
  if(h.Contains('action=logout')){
    callAjax(h, function(d){ location.reload(true); });
    return false;
  }
});

callAjax = function(_url, _callback){
  $j.ajax({
    url : _url,
    type : 'GET',
    success : function(data) {},
    error: function() {},
    complete: function(){ _callback && _callback();}
  });
};

So the result is: when you click on the Log out link the process happening in the background and you can keep the current page after a simple refresh.
