There are 3 shortcodes that can be used:
[logout] - A standard Log Out link, where the user stays on the login screen after being logged out. [logout_to_home] - A link that logs the user out, and redirects them to your home page. [logout_to_current] - A link that logs the user out, and redirects them back to the current page/URL.
All 3 shortcodes all support 3 attributes/parameters:
[logout text="" class="" redirect=""]
The 3 supported attributes/parameters are:
— The text to use for the link anchor text.
— The HTML class(es) to use for the link. Multiple classes should be separated by a space.
— The path/URL to redirect the user to after they are logged out.
— Default: the WordPress login screen.
— Note: must be a URL or path on the same domain name as the WordPress website (cannot be an external domain/URL)

[logout_to_home text=”Log Off”] — A
