Redirect to the Requested URL After Successful Login

This snippet will do a couple of things: first, it’ll force the user to be logged into WordPress before they can visit any posts, pages, etc. Second, this snippet will redirect to the requested URL after a successful login. Set the redirect_to query variable and you’re ready to rock!

add_action('template_redirect','wpsnipp_logged_in_redirect');
function wpsnipp_logged_in_redirect(){
    if(!is_user_logged_in()){
        global $wp;
        $requested_url = home_url( $wp->request );
        $url = add_query_arg( 'redirect_to',
            $requested_url,
            site_url('wp-login.php')
        );
        wp_redirect($url);
        exit;
    }
}
