membership plugin - can't logout

I am using the membership plugin, once they login, they can't logout. the widget to login, why does it not stay and show logged in status and the ability to logout? I don't want to use the WP top bar that says howdy to navigate such settings. what is the alternative? It's a nice plugin, but lacks this. How do I get around it and have a logout feature?

thanks,

    Hi there @Greg

    Welcome to WPMU DEV, glad to have you aboard!

    Yep, the Membership login widget is very basic, and is designed to disappear once the user logs in.

    If you want a persistent widget with handy user information, and a logout link, you may want to try alternatives.

    Happily, there are oodles of free plugins in the WordPress repository for that purpose. This one, for example, works out of the box with zero settings or options and provides a very nice login/register form:

    This one, on the other hand, has a few options built right into the widget so you can control exactly what to display to logged-in users:

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
