Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Hi! I have installed OJS 2.3.8 two months ago.
During the last 2 weeks the logout link sometimes work and sometimes not!
When it is not working the user remains logged in after pressing the logout link (no matter how many times i press the logout link).
I have to close the browser window and open it again to see the user logged out.
This happens with both Firefox and Chrome.
I tried to clear the browser cache but it is not helping.
If i loggout (when it is not working), leave the browser alone for a few minutes and then refresh i can see the user logged out! (i am not sure about this last one, i will check it again)

Any idea? It an OJS bug or it is something wrong with my computer/network? :?

Re: Logout doesn't work (sometimes) - SOLVED!

Ok! I figured it out!
We had set up the SSL only for the login pages and that was creating a "cookie/priviledge" problem when moving from administration pages to login pages (e.g while logging out).
Setting up SSL for all pages solved the problem! :wink:
