Restricting Access to Page

Restricting Access to Page

Hi:

My administrative program (Website) is working exactly as I want it to, except for the "Restrict Access to Page" server behavior.

I have inserted that behavior in the page where users LogOut so that they would have to LogIn again if they wished to go back to that page, but DW doesn't restrict access to it; it allows users to go back and continue working on the site even after they have logged out (Shouldn't the "LogOut" behavior destroy all session variables?)

Is there anything I'm not doing right?

Thank you for your attention.

Imposible to tell what is wrong without more details.

What rule have you applied to the Logout page?

How is the rule defined?

What Sessions are created by the login page?

Jason:

Attached please find the two pages in question. index.php is the logIn page and C-Panel is the page with the LogOut button.

If you wished to see the actual website in action please tell me where I can send you the URL and the logIn info.

Thank you for your attention

the logout behavior is set to trigger if the doLogout query string is set to true


make sure the logout link includes that query string

Jason:

Thank you for your reply, but I frankly wouldn't know exactly what query string I would have to put where. Are you refering to this string? :

$logoutAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."?doLogout=true";
if ((isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) && ($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] != "")){
$logoutAction .="&". htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}

And, if so, where would I have to insert it?

If you care to be a bit more specific it would be highly appreciated.

Thank you for your attention

i am referring to the link to the page that is supposed to trigger the logout, the logout link must include the doLogout=true querystring:


<a href="pagename.php?doLogout=true">click here to logout</a>

Yes. I inserted part of what you suggested in the -$logoutGoTo- string and got: $logoutGoTo = "index.php?doLogout=true"; which works perfectly well. Users can no longer go back to that page after logging out.

Many thanks for your attention

Actually the modification I made didn't work as well as I'd thought. The first time I click on the browser's "Back" button after logging out the browser stays put, but the second or third times it goes back to different pages within the website. Bummer.

Any suggestions?
