PHP Login & Logout process

Posted on 2011-05-09

Hello, I am referring to the article: PHP Client Registration, Login, Logout and Easy Access Control

I have created login and register page. Now, once user is logged in, user should be able to see the logout page. I tried giving logout link on individual pages that are connected with the login process. I think that is wrong way of doing it. Logout should appear automatically on every page once user is logged in. Could you give me some idea of how I can display the logout link automatically after user log's in?

    Maybe something like this...
    if ($uid = access_control(TRUE))
        echo "<a href=\"logout.php\">LOGOUT $uid</a>";

    Open in new window
