Quick Logout Component

The Quick Logout component adds a new menu item type to Joomla 2.5 and 3.x that logs a registered user out without the confirmation step. In addition, you can specify the page to redirect the user to when logging out. When Joomla is configured to use a "guest" user group, you can set this menu item to show to "registered" users, and combine it with a "Login" menu item that is set to show only go "Guest" users. If these 2 menu items are next to each other on the menu, it appears to be a single menu item that switches from "Login" to "Logout" depending on the status of the user.

Just the one I've been looking for. Thanks to your extension, I didn't have to code this functionality in myself.

Why doesn't Joomla! have this by default anyway?

Great work on an extension that truly should be part of core Joomla! Simple solution to a key missing element in Joomla!

Never understood why you need to click twice to logout - now only once - should be an option in core. Thank you.

What this comoponent do should be do it by Joomla itself. Adding a Logout in the User Manager options would be great but nobody think on ot. Fortunately this extension do it

This is just what I needed! Except when I set the redirected to go back to the home page it only loads the "home" article, not the modules I have installed.
