I have added a login link in the footer by cms like as:

    <a href="{{store url="customer/account/login"}}">Login</a>

As soon as customer login I want to change that in the Logout link in magento2 footer.

enter image description here

Go to content -> Blocks -> "Footer Links Block"

Edit and add this link into content editor (below customer service link)

<li class="nav item">{{block class="CompanyName\ModuleName\Block\Footer" template="CompanyName_ModuleName::footer.phtml"}}</li>

and save it.

Create Footer.php block at CompanyName\ModuleName\Block\

namespace CompanyName\ModuleName\Block;

class Footer extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
    protected $_customerSession;
    protected $_storeManager;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context,
        \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $customerSession,
        \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface $storeManager,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_customerSession = $customerSession;
        $this->_storeManager = $storeManager;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

     * Check customer Login or not
    public function checkCustomerLogin()
        $customer_data = [];
        if (!$this->_customerSession->isLoggedIn()) {
            $customer_data['text'] = "Login";
            $customer_data['url'] = $this->_storeManager->getStore()->getUrl('customer/account/login');
        } else {
            $customer_data['text'] = "Logout";
            $customer_data['url'] = $this->_storeManager->getStore()->getUrl('customer/account/logout');
        return $customer_data;

Now, create footer.phtml file at /app/code/CompanyName/ModuleName/view/frontend/templates and add this code

<?php $customerData = $block->checkCustomerLogin(); ?>

<a href="<?php echo $customerData['url'];?>"><?php echo $customerData['text'];?></a>

Clean cache and check it.

  • can you update this if ($this->_customerSession->isLoggedIn()) to if (!$this->_customerSession->isLoggedIn()) in your answer ? Aug 2, 2018 at 6:52
  • Your answer is working best :) Aug 2, 2018 at 6:53
  • Can you update this @Rohan Then will accept this answer ? Aug 2, 2018 at 6:56
  • Oh Yes..!! It's by mistake. Thanks :). Now, Updated Aug 2, 2018 at 6:56

Using below code you can check if customer is logged in or not.

/** @var \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager $om */
$om = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
/** @var \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context $context */
$context = $om->get('Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context');
/** @var bool $isLoggedIn */
$isLoggedIn = $context->getValue(\Magento\Customer\Model\Context::CONTEXT_AUTH);

So you can write code conditionally. If already logged in, show logout link otherwise login link.

You can call such phtml template in cms page as below

{{block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" template="[VendorName]_[ModuleName]::[YourTemplateFileLocation].phtml"}} 
  • I can use above code if i am using phtml file , how can i use that code in cms page admin ? Aug 2, 2018 at 5:01
  • I updated answer to call phtml in cms page Aug 2, 2018 at 5:04
  • I have tried by phtml but due to cache footer does not check dynamic conditions . Its need cache flush then its display effect. Aug 2, 2018 at 5:05
  • Use my given code. It will work also when cache is enabled. Aug 2, 2018 at 5:06
  • my project manager does not allowing me to use $om = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance(); in phtml file Aug 2, 2018 at 5:08
<referenceBlock name="footer_links">
    <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Account\AuthorizationLink" name="authorization-link-login" template="account/link/authorization.phtml"/>

This will place the same link in the footer which is on header. Put in your default.xml. This will place the link in the second column. I have not checked for First column.
