Logout Button

Hi

I have just created user registration pages for a client. This is so the user can submit their details for future contact.
What I need is a logout button for the profile page so once the user has updated their details they can logout.

Thanks in advance.

If you have cookies toolkit installed while running the wizard, a logout page will automaticly be created.


you can create a new logout page and add the following code at line 1L

php:
<?php

if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
  
session_start();
}
?><?php 
if ("" == ""){
  
// WA_ClearSession
    
$clearAll TRUE;
    
$clearThese explode(",","");
    if(
$clearAll){
        foreach (
$_SESSION as $key => $value){
            unset(
$_SESSION[$key]);
        }
    }
    else{
        foreach(
$clearThese as $value){
            unset(
$_SESSION[$value]);
        }
    }
}
?>




this will log the user out.

Hi

Thanks for the reply. What I want to happen is when a user has registered and has a need to change their details is, they log in which takes them straight to their profile so they can update if necessary.

Once the profile has been updated I need a button next to the update button so they can log out and go to another page on the site.

Does this make sense??

Thanks

you just need to add the link to the logout page:
<a href="logout.php">Log out</a>


if you want that link to be a button image:
<a href="logout.php"><img src="logout.jpg" /></a>

Hi,

Thank you!!

That sorted it. I did not thing that just linking to the logout page would actually close the connection, but it does.

Thanks Again.
