You can use the mod_login module for that though.

Actually sorry, you can do logout without a token:

Did you try this one as normal external address:
index.php?option=com_user&return=Lw&task=logout

One more. Do you know how I can hide the virtuemart login box, after the user is logged in?

You could use the Extension MetaMod to do that.

Well, as far as I know rokaccess is a content plugin.

If you want to hide a module (when you logged in) you would need to use e.g. MetaMod. Add it instead of the module you want to hide and then add into the parameters of that module:

Code: Select all

if ( MM_NOT_LOGGED_IN ) return 44; else return 45;
44 = Module ID of the Module which you want to display when the user is logged in
45 = Module ID of the Module which you want to display when the user is logged out

Hello,
Guys this solution is exactly the thing I was looking for.
It saves one click for the user by not showing the logout link as a part of module in the content but by logging out directly.
It is in my opinion smoother way of logout. More user firendly.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge...
:)
Regards,
Dariusz

Do you have access to your error log file? to see if there are any errors? Do you have PHP4 or PHP5?

Just a quick snippet for anybody who runs across this post. This link will redirect the user to whichever page they are currently on after they are logged out.

Code: Select all

<?php 

// get the user object
$user = &JFactory::getUser();

// get the current Joomla base url
$base = JURI::current();

// encode the current base url for use in redirection
$redirect = base64_encode($base);

/* is the user logged in? if user is logged in, 
display Log Out link with redirection to 
current page */

if ($user->get('gid')) { ?>

<a href="index.php?option=com_user&task=logout&return=<?php echo $redirect; ?>">Log Out</a>

<?php } ?>
