View Full Version : Logout Button replacing Logout text

This easy template mod will replace the Logout Username text that appears at the bottom of your forumhome page with a Logout button graphic/image instead.

Level of difficulty: Easy
Time to install: 1 minute

I have made a Logout image (attached) in the default vB Style.

Open FORUMHOME and very close to the bottom of that template find the following code;

<!-- member logout -->
<td align="$stylevar[right]"><a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout&amp;logouthash=$bbuserinfo[logouthash]" onclick="return log_out('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]')"><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[log_out_x]</phrase></a></td>
<!-- end member logout -->

Replace that code in its entirety with the following code;

<!-- member logout button -->
<td align="$stylevar[right]">
<a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout&amp;logouthash=$bbuserinfo[logouthash]" onclick="return log_out('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]')"><img src="$stylevar/logout.gif"
border="0" width="110" height="26" alt="<phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[log_out_x]</phrase>"></a></td>
<!-- end member logout -->

Then upload the attached image to your[I] images/buttons directory... and hey presto, you're done!

Note: The text you would normally have seen e.g. <Logout theMusicMan> is now shown when you mouse-over the logout button.

Please click Install if you use it, thanks.
Enjoy!

Just installed this thanks for the work. I did clean up a bit of white space around the edge of the button so I'll attach it here if anyone wants it.

I tried to enlarge the Log Out button, but somehow it got auto-resized.

I tried to enlarge the Log Out button, but somehow it got auto-resized.

Figured that out.

Q: is it possible to have the same logout button on all forum views ?


ie. like this
http://www.mysite.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=2 ?

and opposed to just on the index page ?

There are errors in this suggested modification.

'$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]' is missing from this section.


Open FORUMHOME and very close to the bottom of that template find the following code;

<!-- member logout -->
<td align="$stylevar[right]"><a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout&amp;logouthash=$bbuserinfo[logouthash]" onclick="return log_out('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]')"><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[log_out_x]</phrase></a></td>
<!-- end member logout -->

Replace that code in its entirety with the following code;

<!-- member logout button -->
<td align="$stylevar[right]">
<a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout&amp;logouthash=$bbuserinfo[logouthash]" onclick="return log_out('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]')"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/logout.gif"
border="0" width="110" height="26" alt="<phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[log_out_x]</phrase>"></a></td>
<!-- end member logout -->




FYI everyone.

The symptom here is that When you click Log Out in the navbar or the Forum Home Page ..... The "Are you sure you want to Log Out" message is missing ... and instead it says "undefined".
