just add <%= link_to 'sign out', destroy_user_session_path, :method=>'delete' unless user_signed_in? %> somewhere in your layout, then you'll have a link to sign out

I am guessing that you haven't gotten to the part where you add the logout features. What you can do right now is go to localhost:3000/users/1/edit and then delete the user. You may have to change the 1 if you have more than one user. Then you can re-signup.
