Direct logout link (not module button)

12 years 1 week ago #68985 by cursor
Hey CB-Team,

thanks again for great CB1.2. I haven't yet found any component that runs so stable and smoothly and is still RC!

I'm running Joomla! 1.5.4 and CB 1.2 RC2 and I want to add an Logout-Link in my Usermenu. Is that somehow possible?

I checked available links in the menu manager for CB but all I found is register which doesn't make that much sense in that situation.

I also tried [code:1]index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=logout[/code:1] which I found somewhere in the forum - that logs me out, but unfortunately doesn't redirect me (like to module logout button) and only gives me error "_UE_REGISTERFORPROFILE".

Do you have any ideas how I could achieve that I get logged out and redirected to the homepage (like the module does?)

Kind regards and thanks in advance.
Oli

Add an External Link with the code you sited as the URL:
index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=logout

It works, but you'll have to modify the internal code in module/cblogin or more likely components/comprofiler to redirect to the front page instead of the profile error. The logout works though.

I think the code is in comprofiler around line 163 (but you'll want to doublecheck this with one of the core coders):

[code:1] }

if ( $return ) {
cbRedirect( strncasecmp( $return, "index.php", 9 ) ? cbSef( $return, false ) : $return );
} else {
cbRedirect( cbSef( 'index.php', false ) );
}[/code:1]

I don't think there is a direct link for logout in CB yet (good idea).

You can use joomla's one (just the CB events won't be made, which isn't an issue in most cases).

There should already be one in your User Menu. If not, simply make a component link to the login component and name it "Logout".

If the user is already logged in this should log him or her out.
