logout button

I got stumped by this because I didn't know how to use urls to create the logout button.

template with the logout button

<div class="headermenu">
    <a href="{% url 'surferprofile:logout' %}"
    style="text-decoration: none;">Logout

When a user clicks on the text "Logout", the call goes to urls.py using the name logout.

from django.conf.urls import url
from . import views

app_name = 'surferprofile'
urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^logout/$', views.logout_user, name='logout'),

The logout_user() method simply redirects the user to the splash (welcome/landing) page. Obviously this assumes that there is a splash page to go to.

def logout_user(request):
    return HttpResponseRedirect('/splash')
