Hi!

I'm running joomla 1.0.12.

Currently users can't log out. They simply remain logged in.

Any experienced the same? Any ideas on solutions?

thanks!

do you mean that there is no function for them to log out?

or do you mean that they use the logout function, but it doesn't log them out?

Hi!

thanks for response.

There is a logout mechanism, but it's not working. I.e they click to log out, but they remain logged in.

If you have a log out function, then I'm not sure why it won't log you out. Have you checked your config file to make sure all paths and live_site are correct? Not sur that it would matter, but if something is wrong in there, strange things can happen.

Also, did it EVER work?

I'm seeing the same issue here.

My users log in, but they simply can't log out. They click logout and remain actively logged-in.

Yeah, I am having problems with this too....there seems to be some serious bug with the SEO and the log in module. Something is not working properly and this needs to be addressed.

Yes,

When we disable the Remember Me plugin, users are auto-logged out.

There is a conflict if you are running a 1.5.x Joomla site in Legacy mode..i.e. 1.0

Go to the plugins section in the administrators pages.

Look for the plugins that start "System-"

Reorder them so the the "System-Remember Me" is before the "System-Legacy" and that should solve your problems.

Reordering doesn't help me. Firefox is fine. IE 8 users can not log out. Hit the logout button, screen refreshes, user still logged in. Mods that should not show, show.

disable the Remember Me plugin that did the trick.

Hi everyone,
I don't want to disable Remember Me, because I want my users to be able to stay logged in. But I would like occasionally to be able to log out in order to see what visitors can see. I'm super-admin and I seem to be the only one who can't log out! The other super-admin has the opposite problem, can't stay logged in for more than 12 hours at a time.

I tried moving the Legacy plugin, but it's disabled anyway.

Hi, folks. I'm having the same problem.

1. SuperAdmin (me) doesn't stay logged in in Firefox.
2. SuperAdmin (me) is now permanently logged in after I logged in through MS Explorer.

Now, when I hit my site, I see that I am logged in, but I'm not.

The "Remember Me" plugin is enabled, but apparently doesn't work (at least with me, SuperAdmin).

When disabled, my site still shows me logged in, and I'm not.

I purged all cache, all cookies, et al, on both server and client sides.

Weird.

Greg

It is problem of Windows, not Joomla.
Disable "Protect data web favorites"!
1) Go to "Control Panel>Internet Options>History>Delete
2) uncheck "Protect data web favorites"

Hi ArtMotyl, where is 'protect data web favorites' please?

I use WinXP Pro and I found it in the Control Panel, Internet Options, and then under Browsing History click Delete... up at the top there is an option titled "Preserve Favorites website data."

In W Vista: Control Panel>Internet Options>History>Delete
In Internet Explorer 8: Tools>Internet Options>History>Delete
uncheck: Preserve Favorites website data

I'm in Windows XP and IE7. I don't seem to have anything like that. Of course I've got Tools>Internet Options>History>Delete, but nothing about preserving favourites.

Try delete your page from Favourites. It could help.

Hey, thanks, ArtMotyl - that worked!

Yes, that worked. Thank you.

I've tried all kinds of things, because I want the logins on my site to work properly. What a crazy solution: delete the history files. Duh.

This worked in XP, IE8.

The only problem is, I can't ask all of our users to adjust default settings in IE8. Isn't there something that can be done with the remember me plugin to fix it?

Thanks,
Chad

I've got exactly the same problem. Log out workes fine in both firefox and Crome but if I log on using IE8 I can't log off my site, no matter what I do. I agree with volleyfreak - it isn't a plausible solution to expect everybody to change the default setting of IE. There must be a better solution.
