Example text only See HowToMakeATWikiLogoutPage. The LOGOUT link should link to the inaccessible file logoutfile on your server.

To logout of TWiki, click on this link LOGOUT and then click on Cancel when you are prompted for a password.

To login again, just click on Edit on any page you wish to edit and you should be prompted for your username and password. This time, enter your correct username and password.

WARNING: if you have various aliases for your domain name, then you should write the link as


since (i guess) your browser caches authentication info for each user for each domain name separately (which makes sense).

If you use a fixed domain name in the link, then users using your non-default domain name alias will not be logged out, since as far as your browser is concerned, the two different domains are totally unrelated and there's no need to modify the cached user/password info. (Took me a couple of hours to debug this.)

If you have RedirectPlugin installed, then creating a page named LogOut that has the line


on it makes it possible to log out simply by typing LogOut in the Jump box, then clicking on Cancel.

Clever, but, am I right in thinking this still requires explanation to the user of a non-obvious process? If so then unfortunately this is at best just a hack.

Better to ditch the use of BasicAuthentication in all places that cookies are available.
