Quick Logout

September 9th, 2011

The Quick Logout component adds a new menu item type to Joomla 1.6 / 1.7 that logs a registered user out without the confirmation step. When Joomla is configured to use a “guest” user group, you can set this menu item to show to “registered” users, and combine it with a “Login” menu item that is set to show only go “Guest” users. If these 2 menu items are next to each other on the menu, it appears to be a single menu item that switches from “Login” to “Logout” depending on the status of the user.
