How to Add a Log In / Log Out link to Your WordPress Sidebar

Andrew Pfund — 
In this lesson I'm going to show you how to add a log in and log out link to the sidebar of your Memberium based membership site. The log in link will only be visible to non logged in Members. And the log out link will only be visible to logged in members. If you'd like to learn how to add a log-in/log-out link to your menu click here. Now let's get started and add these links to your WordPress sidebar...
  • Step 1
    Add an empty "Text widget to your Wordrpess sidebar (In your wordpress admin sidebar go to Appearance > Widgets > 'Text' Widget).
  • Step 2
    Paste the following into the text area of the widget you just added and click "Save" to make your log out / log in link live on your site.
    [memb_is_logged_in]
    [memb_logout_link linktext="Log Out Here" url="http://yourdomain.com/login"]
    [else_memb_is_logged_in]
    <a href="http://yourdomain.com/login">Log In</a>
    [/memb_is_logged_in]
(be sure your log in page URL matches the URL of your own login page)
