Is Anyone Else Having This “Log Out” Problem.

  • After logging in to the site the log out link provided in various pages, ie, admin bar area and on user pages, does not work. The link(s) attempt to send you to the wp-login.php?action=logout&redirect_to=siteurl. Problem is it does not work. You get a “Page Not Found” error and user is still logged in. Interestingly enough if you go to the wpma dashboard and log out from there you can log out from there, just not from the buddypress side. Any thoughts, hints or out right cures for my problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    I remember seeing a fix float through svn related to a login/logout problem. If you are running the beta download, try upgrading to the svn trunk.



    I have the same problem and I just updated from svn a few minutes ago.

    I can’t even logout of the admin.

    somehow it is so persistent that the only thing I can do to logout, is to close the tab with mu/bp running, clear cookies, cache etc. close browser and reopen it.

    Okay, I’m not sure what the problem is but here is how I fixed it.

    First I totally wiped out all buddypress and WPMU files from the site. I then downloaded the SVN from this URL: This gives you the WPMU 2.7 version which is still beta at this time but seems to work fine. After setting up WPMU and setting it up so that blogs come under a subdomain (ex. I updated my svn version of buddypress ( and uploaded to the site and installed it. Everything is now working.

    I have no idea why it wasn’t working before. I had tried to rewrite some of the code but to no avail. ANywho … doing it this way will get your site working. Also I think it may be important to use subdomains for the blogs. Not sure if that is true but I believe it may be.

    Oh one last thing … if you do not find the fix or do what I did you can log out from the wpmu dashboard. but that is the only place.



    Thanks for the info.

    So far I am using 2.7 from the start, latest trunk

    I also updated to latest bp svn today.

    I have a bit of a custom setup running on my site, and it’s good to hear that the ‘root’ problem has been solved in the trunk. I will contact the dev that is working with me and see if we can come up with any other ideas.

    Remember …. I could be wrong about this but I think you need to have new blogs set up under subdomains not subdirectories. That seems to be what fixed it for me.



    I am going to bump this thread… I am using WP (single) 2.9.2 and BP and am having this issue… BUT, it is only happening in Safari or Chrome (on MAC and PC).




    Closing this thread, please don’t bump a year old post.

    Discussions can continue on your new thread.
