When a user clicks logout it logs them out then redirects them to the login page. My question is should I do this or should I bring them back to the page they logged out from?
You could test your users, or review other sites, especially your competitors and see what they do.
Make a spreadsheet and examine your results. If everyone: on-line merchants,banks, and other sites all do the same thing - then that would be a good choice as it would be the industry standard.
The two choices I see most often (correct me if I'm wrong) are:
- Return to home page
- Stay on the current page (the page they logged out from)
I don't recall many sites sending one to the login page. (Assuming there is a separate and distinct login page).
Regardless, the more this concerns you the more you should examine industry standards and be able to present your findings to the team.
