#23859 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Logout Url getting indexed

Reported by: unsalkorkmaz's profile unsalkorkmaz Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Toolbar Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Problem line:

<a class="screen-reader-shortcut" href="<?php echo esc_url( wp_logout_url() ); ?>"><?php _e('Log Out'); ?></a>

It gets indexed by google and probably other search engines too. (see: attachment)

Possible solution: Maybe adding rel="nofollow" will fix problem

We already call wp_no_robots() on the login screen:, which outputs the following in the header:

<meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />

Not sure what to suggest here. Are you running any "SEO" plugins that might be interfering?

This is displaying in wp_admin_bar and when you show wp_admin_bar to non-logged-in users, it shows on every page

  • Keywords close added

A properly written log-out URL will be visible to logged in users only. So this problem can never happen.
