Hi guy!
I create a session for my login I need logout user and destry session.
So I use this function but is wrong because i can't destroy session. Then in thempalte if I insert Logout in that point I can't log in..
function Logout()
   { if((Session::get('registrato', false)) //if my user log in
    session_destroy(); // I destroy session
    return Director::redirect('http://chimera2:81/m5/home/'); //I return in my homepage   

and in template:

if (Session::get('registrato') == 1) //user is log in
<div><a href="$Logout">LOGOUT</a>

You can't use plain PHP in a template.

You need to create a 'checkSession' (or similar) function in the page class, and you can call the method from the template.

// In the class:
function isLoggedIn() {
return (Session::get('registrato') == 1)

// In the template
<% if isLoggedIn %>
<div><a href="$Logout">LOGOUT</a>
<% end_if %>

But, again, I encourage you to use the existing user administration functionality. You are reinventing the wheel.
