#47995 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

WP 5.2.3 on W10 Logout Not returning to Login Page

On a windows system the “dirname” can result in “\” a backwards slash.

In wp-includes/pluggable.php the code on line 1404 :

$location = ‘/’ . ltrim( $path . ‘/’, ‘/’ ) . $location;

dose not take this in to account, and causes the logout to hang until a timeout occurs.

IMHO it should be as follows:

$location = ‘/’ . ltrim( $path . ‘/’, ‘/\\’ ) . $location;
