With this plugin you can easily add a dynamic login/logout menu item to any menu on your WordPress site. The menu item will change based on whether the current user is logged in or logged out. You can also set a specific login page url, login redirect url and a logout redirect url.
Thanks to Juliobox for his prior efforts on the BAW Login/Logout Menu plugin which this is derived from
After installing and activating the plugin, you can find the settings in your dashboard under:
Settings > Login or Logout
Login Page URL – This should be the URL to the page where your users will login at. For most wordpress sites this will be
/wp-login.php but if you’re using a membership plugin like MemberPress, it might be something like
Login Redirect URL – This is the URL you would like your users to be redirected to after they’ve successfully logged in. You can set it to
/ to take them to the home page after logging in. If you’re using a membership plugin like MemberPress, you might want to use
/account/ instead. NOTE: Some plugins may override this if they are configured to redirect your users somewhere else during login.
Logout Redirect URL – This is the URL you would like your users to be redirected to after they click the Logout link from this menu item. Use a
/ to redirect them to the home page, or you might want to redirect them back to the login page at
ADD ITEM TO MENU
In your dashboard visit
Appearance > Menus.
Then at the top right of that page click the
Screen Options button and ensure that
Login/Logout checkbox is checked.
Then select a menu to edit, or create a new menu if you don’t already have one.
In the left sidebar find
Login/Logout and click the checkbox next to
Login|Logout and then click
Add to Menu.
You can now drag the menu item wherever you’d like it to appear in your menu. The
URL in the menu settings must be left at
#lolmiloginout# but you can change the
Navigation Label if you’d like it to say something else. Just ensure that the
| is there in the label separating the two words.
Now save your menu. That’s it!
After logging in, menu still shows “Login” or Vice-Versa – This is most commonly caused by caching. If you’re using a caching solution such as Cloudflare, WPRocket, or others, be sure that caching is disabled for logged in users, and disable browser caching options as well.
Login is redirecting users somewhere other than my settings – Many times other plugins will have their own login redirect handling which overrides this plugin’s, such as MemberPress for example. In this case, the other plugins will need to be configured to redirect the user where you’d like them to go.
