This plugin can be thought of as a front-end logout solution. It allows a WordPress administrator to embed a link on
any page (or post if you want) that gives other WordPress users the ability to easily logout without having to fuss
with the WordPress Dashboard. There are three shortcodes that can be used, and each one has a different redirect
option: Redirect to Home, Current Page, or the WordPress Default wp-login.php page.
The Logout Button plugin uses the default log out functionality provided by WP through wp_loginout(). It checks to
see if the user is logged in. If the user is logged in, a Log Out link will be displayed to them. If the user is not
logged in, nothing will be shown to the user.
Future releases will include the ability to choose “Themes”. Right now, a simple link is displayed and the CSS from
the currently activated theme is used on that link. Of course, there is always the ability to dive directly into
display_button.php to edit the CSS yourself.
- Upload the ‘logout-button’ folder to the
/wp-content/plugins/directory. Alternatively, you can upload the .zip
folder to WordPress directly using the WP Dashboard – Plugins -> Add New -> Upload.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Choose the appropriate for your Pages or Posts: [logout-to-default], [logout-to-current], [logout-to-home]
