How to logout from WordPress without confirmation

In this tutorial I will explain how you can create a logout link in Wordpress without confirmation. If you have a Wordpress theme with logout link, it will redirect you to the page where you need to confirm the logout.

To solve this problem, you must use the wp_loginout() function in your logout link.


<a href="<?php echo wp_logout_url(get_home_url()); ?>">Logout</a>

Inside of the wp_loginout() you must insert the url where the users will be redirect. wp_logout_url(get_home_url()) will redirect users on Home Page.

Now, your logout link will works well!
