CANNOT LOGOUT? READ THIS!
#1
To try and curb the amount of posts regarding logout issues, I am replacing the existing sticky with this one. The previous sticky can be found here. I recommend that your read it if you are still having trouble after following the instructions laid out below.

Why am I unable to logout?
Well, there are three main reasons for this. The first two relate the following error when clicking the "Logout" link:
Quote:Your user ID could not be verified to log you out. This may have been because a malicious Javascript was attempting to log you out automatically. If you intended to logout, please click the Logout button at the top menu.

This means that your Logout link doesn't contain an SID and since MyBB 1.2.8, this is required. There are two possible reasons for this:
1) The board has been updated to a newer version of MyBB but some template information hasn't been updated.
2) You are using a template designed for a version of MyBB older than 1.2.8 and as such, the logout link is also missing the SID component.

A fix for both these issues can be found by following the instructions here to manually update your templates Logout link to contain the SID. Note: You will need to do this for every theme that you use on your forum which does not currently contain an SID link.

If after making the above changes you are still unable to logout and are running MyBB 1.2.10. Please try the following.

The third reason could relate to your cookie settings. Either, the Cookie settings for a forum have been changed so that they no longer correspond to the cookies you have stored so that when you click logout, MyBB is attempting to remove cookies which don't exist.

Or, you have some cookies remaining from a previous session (when the Cookie settings were different) and also a set of cookies for this session (with the new cookie settings). In this case, MyBB will clear your new cookies, but not the old ones so you will appear unable to logout.

In both situations, the best solution is to clear the cookies in your browser.

Please post the following info if you are still having problems:
1) Forum URL
2) What error you are getting
3) What you have done to try to fix this

Go into your 'Admin CP', scroll naar 'Sjablonen' - 'Doorzoeken' - 'Namen van sjablonen zoeken' en vul de naam in; hoef je nietmeer zelf te zoeken

Thanks for the help with the log out solution, except I still have a problem.

I don't get that malicious script thingy anymore, it say's I'm logged out, but I'm not.

I've cleared the cookies, many times, so what did I do wrong?
#8
It still says you are logged in after you have cleared your cookies? That would be impossible.

Unless the browser is reading a cache version of the page and keeps rendering the same. If you did cleared your cookies, try pressing CTRL + F5 in your page or deleting the cache of the browser.
