Loginout not displaying properly (7 posts)

    <a class="footerLink" href="<?php wp_loginout(); ?>" title="<?php _e('login area'); ?>"></a>

    the above is what I'm using to try to create a link for the login area - but it's displaying either without the footerlink formatting or comes up with Logout <"login area or something like that.

    Can anyone tell me what I should be adding to make it display properly? The code itself adds fine on its own, but without the footerlink formatting so, it looks inconsistent.

    Thanks in advance

    The wp_loginlogout function outputs the <a href tag itself, so what you're putting in is going to be messy...

    You could try <span class="foooterLink"><?php wp_loginlogout(); ?></span>

    Or take a look in wp-includes/template-functions-general.php and adapt the wp_loginlogout() function to suit your needs. I added a class to mine so as to integrate it with Matt's Intelligent Menu.

    Don't hold me to this as my eyes are almost shut, but I would not add any class and just put the link in your footer but it is hard to say without visualizing

    a href="http://your domain/blog/wp-login.php?action=logout">Logout

    apply correct link tags

    <?php wp_loginout(); ?> will displacy "login/logout" status

    <?php _e('login area'); ?> will display "login area"

    With your code: It will show "login login area".

    Am I correct?

    So, if you want to change the default "login/logout" letter, you will need to hack (edit) to file called "template-functions-general.php" in your wp-included folder and do following:

    1 - search for: function wp_loginout()
    2- underneat it, you will see something like:

    get_settings('siteurl') . '/wp-login.php">' . __('login') .

    3- change the LETTER "login" to something else you like
    4- do the same thing with "logout" as well if you want.
    5- check you page and see.
    6- good luck !

    I did this even using an image to display "login/lout" fuction. Check my site http://unkool.com and you will see the TOP right coner.

    nden - unfortunately for a theme that's going to be difficult as if I am distributing it then I'm asking users to modify their own core templates - bad idea for me at least.

    I'll try the other suggestions, thanks guys.

    Well I tried the first method and it highlighted the ">. I think this is quite a ludicrous thing, it should be simple to add or remove this...it's a bleeding headache. Will try some other examples....

    I use an image link for my login "button" like this:
    <a href="http://www.website.com/wp-login.php?action=login"><img src="picture.jpg"/></a>
    I don't have a 'register' link, so no one but me needs a 'login' link, and I did not want it displayed on the page if it wasn't needed...
