MySQLi Log Out User not logging out user?

I have the following on a sign out page:

<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/authentication.php'); ?>
<?php
if ("" == "") {
$LogOut = new WA_MySQLi_Auth();
$LogOut->Action = "logout";
$LogOut->Name = "prescIN";
$LogOut->execute();
}
?>



I have another page with the MySQLi Restrict Access to Page behaviour...

<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/authentication.php'); ?>
<?php
if ("" == "") {
$RestrictAccess = new WA_MySQLi_Auth();
$RestrictAccess->Action = "restrict";
$RestrictAccess->Name = "prescIN";
$RestricAccessRedirect = "staff.php?f=2";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $RestricAccessRedirect = $RestricAccessRedirect?rel2abs($RestricAccessRedirect,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$RestrictAccess->FailRedirect = $RestricAccessRedirect;
$RestrictAccess->execute();
}
?>



However, when we click our sign out button, and are taken to the sign out page, and then attempt to access the page that's restricted, it simply allows us access to that page.

Anything obvious in the above?
Thank you.

It appears that this problem is completely related to the Auto-login Check and Remember-me Check functions in the MySQLi Log In User behaviour.
I created the Log In User behaviour again, without those functions, and it's now successfully logging out users.

I have a "Remember Me" check box on my sign in page, which I'd like to use, although I have noticed that the same Remember Me check box for this forum has never worked so my faith in this facility isn't 100%!

I assume, if someone checks the "Remember Me" check box on the sign in page then when they access the login page again it should automatically log them back in? Or just pre-fill the sign in form?

I'd appreciate some advice on how this feature is supposed to work as it's obviously not in the help files.

Thank you.

Remember Me should just put the username in the username field. Automatic Login should keep the user logged in at all times after their first log in... so log out would effectively do nothing.

How do I trigger the Remember Me to respond to the user checking a 'Remember Me' check box?

Automatic Login explains a lot about my previous issues! :S Is it automatically logging people in based on Session values?

Thanks Ray.

It automatically logs you in based on cookies set.

Remember Me also sets a cookie that you can then use to populate the text field.

So there's no need for a "Remember me" checkbox then, if the behaviour does that automatically?

The remember me checkbox initiates the saving of the username in the cookie and population of the text field from that cookie. The Auto Login saves both the username and passsword and uses the cookie directly to log the user in without ever displaying the form.

The behaviour wizard doesn't display an option for utilising a form field as the trigger. How do I create that in the Remember-me Check section of the wizard?

Thank you.

That is all automatically done by the wizard. What are you trying to do?

The sign in form I'm using is a Bootstrap 4 template which has a "Remember me" checkbox:
http://www.nathonjoneswebdesign.co.uk/dgprescribingsupport/staff.php

I'm using this with the MySQLi Log In User behaviour but I was unclear how the behaviour would automatically know the name of the Remember me check box (in order to establish if a user has checked the box or not).

Are you saying that the behaviour, if Remember-me Check is selected in the Wizard to be triggered, automatically remembers the username (via cookie) regardless of whether or not the user has checked the remember me box?

Sorry for my confusion (well documented!).
