Authorization Links Widget Overview
This tutorial explains how to add Authorization Links with the help of the JetBlocks plugin to allow users to register and sign in to their accounts.
Do you want to allow the users to register on your website? If you have set the functionality that allows the creation of new user accounts, you will need the “Register” and “Sign in” buttons. The Auth Links widget of the JetBlocks plugin can help you to create those buttons. It allows users to log in, log out, register, and enter their account page.
Let’s find out how to add the Authorization Links widget and customize it as you wish.
How to Add the Auth Links Widget
Open your website’s dashboard and find the page where you would like to add the authorization links. Open it with the Elementor page builder and seek the Auth Links widget in the panel on the left. Drag and drop it on a certain place in the header or to some of the page’s sections.
Auth Links Widget Settings
Let’s take a look at the available customization options for the Auth Links widget. There are the Login Link, Logout Link, Register Link, Registered Link, and General blocks with different settings.
- Show Login Link. When this toggle is enabled, only the users that are not logged in will see the “Log in” button;
- Login Page URL. You can paste the URL of the separate login page here or choose it from the Dynamic Tags list;
- Login Link Text. This is the label of the button. By default, it is “Login” but you can change it to any other text;
- Login Icon. You can add an icon to the login button. Choose it from the Icon Library or upload an SVG file;
- Login Prefix. This is the text that will be shown before the login button.
- Show Logout Link. This toggle makes the logout button visible to the logged-in users;
- Logout Link Text. Here you can type in the label of the logout button;
- Logout Icon. You can choose the icon that will be shown before the button label. Choose it from the Icon Library or upload your own SVG file;

- Logout Prefix. The text you enter here will be shown before the logout button. You can use the %s macro code, and the user’s name will be automatically used there.
