    You guys really need to think about putting a log out on the Webhost Manager. If you need to go in to a Internet cafe to add an account or something like that, it is a big problem. If some one goes back to the url it will let them in.

    Ehm, how about NEVER entering a control panel in a inet cafe?

    It is really NOT safe to do such a thing on a public computer.

    Ever heard of keyloggers? It is really simple to install that, even on a socalled protected pc.

    Really good help.... I see the type of people that use this bbs!

    With over 97 Views, it looks like others may like to see a log out also!

    I am on the road a lot and need to logon to help my customers. ;) A log out is needed and would not be hard for them to add.

    shadows - It must be nice to be able to take cheep shots at people. I wish you well!

    Thanks guys!

    Yes, it is nice to see a logout button finally added to some of the Cpanel themes.. but one really should be added to the WHM.

    Some of you may not believe this, but I still know people on 9200bps dialups... and that is the only thing they can get where they live, they go to internet cafes because it is so much faster and more convient then using their home computer.

    There should be no reason one shouldn\'t be able to use the WHM from an internet cafe, sure.. it isn\'t a great idea, but for some it may be the only option.

    Talk about a new feature. After you log out, push the back button. It\'ll ask you for password again, but just ignore it and you\'re still logged in!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well I guess putting a log out on the Webhost Manager is something others would like to see also! :D

    I feel vindicated! :P

    Nothing we can do about that. The browser is still keeping the auth data even though we told it that it is now invalid. Try entering garbage in box and hitting ok to force it to clear things out. This will probably only happen with certin *ahem* browsers.

    I agree - this is something that is needed.. It would be nice it when the logout button is clicked that somehow the cookies in the accessing machine would disappear. Otherwise, in the case of connecting from a cybercafe, the next person just looks at the History, calls up WebHost and is connected on your root account...

    A Logout should be provided in WHM, it doesnt seem \"geeky\" to ask for this at all heh.
