Bug Report

User Story

As a logged in user, I want the [give_login] shortcode's "click here to logout" link to log me out.

Current Behavior

currently that link goes to /wp-admin instead of logging the user out.

Expected Behavior

I expect it to log me out when I click that link.

Bug Type

  • This bug describes functionality that once worked as expected in version X.X.X.
  • This bug describes functionality that never worked as expected.
  • I am not sure whether this functionality ever worked as expected.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. put the [give_login] shortcode on a page
  2. while logged in, visit that page.
  3. The text You are already logged in to the site. Click Here to logout is displayed. Clicking the link does not log you out.

Possible Solution

That link is defined here:

esc_url( admin_url() )


Acceptance Criteria

  • The hyperlinked text is changed to Click here to log out (space in log out).
  • The link actually logs the user out.
  • The hyperlinked anchor text is more descriptive than "click here" for a11y

@Benunc In the meantime, this filter is a good workaround, and this should essentially be the fix for this issue:

add_filter('give_already_logged_in_message', 'my_custom_give_logout_link' );

function my_custom_give_logout_link() {
    echo sprintf(
    /* translators: %s Redirect URL. */
        __( 'You are already logged in to the site. <a href="%s">Click here</a> to logout.', 'give' ),
