loginlink() - logOUTlink()

Post by wdburgdorf » Wed Sep 04, 2013 3:02 pm

Hi,

loginlink() shows a link to the login page when not logged in. The link disappears once logged in. Is there a way to display a log out link instead of nothing?

Thanks!

Regards, Ralf.

Fixed it myself, but would be glad to know if there's a better way.

My way:

Added function to cms.php:

Code: Select all

function logoutlink() {
    return '<a href="?&logout">Logout</a>';
}
Edited template.htm:

Code: Select all

<?php echo loginlink();echo logoutlink();?>

IMO it's fine as it is. If you want to hide the logout link when the user is not logged in, you may change the function:

Code: Select all

function logoutlink() {
    global $adm;

    if ($adm) {
        return '<a href="?&logout">Logout</a>';
    } else {
       return '';
    }
} 
If you're using CMSimple_XH >= 1.5.4 use XH_ADM instead of $adm, and remove the global "declaration".
