Using request query to WordPress to generate current page URL.

<?php
global $wp;
$current_url = add_query_arg( $wp->query_string, '', home_url( $wp->request ) );
?>

As $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ] represents unfiltered user input, one should always escape the return value of add_query_arg() when the context is changed. For example, use esc_url_raw() for DB usage or esc_attr() or esc_url() for HTML.

# relative current URI:
<?php echo $current_rel_uri = add_query_arg( NULL, NULL ); ?>

#absolute current URI:
<?php echo $current_uri = home_url( add_query_arg( NULL, NULL ) ); ?>
