I would like to add a "LogOut" button at the end of my sidemenu - but of course only, if someone is logged in. I also want to have it in two languages using qtranslate.

At the moment I have created a new Menu Item "Log Out" with a link to /wp-login.php?action=logout which works, but always shows up of course.

Is there a way to put something like this in the function? Any help - or just a hint would be very nice! :)


To add a menu item to the end of a nav menu you can use the wp_nav_menu_items hook. Combine that with is_user_logged_in() and you ought to have it.

function add_last_nav_item($items) {
  if (!is_user_logged_in()) {
    return $items .= 'your login link';

As far as translation, I assume that qTranslate uses the standard translation functions, but I'm not sure as I don't use it and as it is a third party plugin that part of the puzzle is off-topic anyway.

  • Thanks! This works great. But how could I tell, that it is only shown in a menu widget called e.g.: shop menu? thanks! – ad2003 May 13 '14 at 17:24
  • I can't quite tell what you are asking but it is going to depend on the widget most likely. Do you have that code? – s_ha_dum May 13 '14 at 17:29
