    if( 'primary' == $args->theme_location ) {
            if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {

                $items .= '<li><a class="btn btn-logout" href="'.wp_logout_url(home_url()).'">Logout</a></li>';

            } else {

                $items .= '<li><a class="btn btn-login" href="'.wp_login_url() .'">Login</a></li>';
