Theme My Login is my favorite plugin and I admire and appreciate Jeff greatly for creating it.
Unfortunately, after I updated to 6.3.7, I had problems with logging in and out. (I am using the latest version of WP.)
The login button on the main menu in my theme disappeared. I was still able to login by manually entering the login URL. And I could logout through the admin panel when logged in with admin privileges.
However, when I was logged in with basic Subscriber rights (with the admin panel hidden), there was no way to log out.
I updated to 6.3.8 hoping that would be resolved and was glad to see the login button reappear on the menu in my theme. However, unfortunately, the logout functionality still does not work properly as it once did flawlessly.
I activated the Theme My Login widget in the side panel to logout from there (to only show when someone is logged in). However, the widget shows both “logout” and “login” while logged on when it should just show “logout.”
Also, the login button on the themed menu shows “login” instead of “logout” so it could be confusing to a subscriber that is logged on and is not clear that they are logged on. In the previous version, “login” automatically changed to “logout” when someone was logged in.
I want them to be automatically logged off after they exit the site without logging out but that does not appear to happen either.
I’m not sure why the original login/logout functionality changed but hope that it can be restored as it was since it worked flawlessly prior to 6.3.7. Right now it’s confusing to someone that is logged in.
