#7829 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

logout from anywhere except meta on the site fails

Reported by: surispace Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.7
Component: General Keywords: logout, redirect, wpnonce

it seems like there is a problem with logging out in 2.7 latest build as on 3/sept/2008.

if trying to logout from meta menu, the log out works. however if logging out from either above the "reply/leave a comment" box or otherwise via a AJax login pluggin, logout fails.

there seems to be a call made to action wpnonce under the meta menu for logout button but not anywhere else in the site.

kindly look into it. fix it ASAP.

  • Priority changed from highest omg bbq to normal
  • Severity changed from critical to normal

The logout link on 2.7 is covered by a nonce now.

If a plugin doesnt implement the functionality at present, It'll need to be updated to comply.

It appears that themes will currently need to be fixed up to support the new logout link functions (which include the nonce).

See #7790

Is this worth writing up more publicly for theme developers?
