Clear Sessions not logging out users

Clear sessions not working. I set it to clear all but it doesn't log me out. I used SecurityAssist to create the log in information. The behavior has bee applied to the LogOut page and the trigger is set to before page load.

It must not be clearing them for some reason. If your session is cleared you will be logged out.

That's obvious. :) I was hoping for some direction as to why it wouldn't clear the session. I'll enter a support ticket. Thanks

You could post the code you are using to clear the session and describe the page and context it is being used in and I might be able to give more information. Without details to go on it is hard to give details in a response.

Here is the code generated by Cookies Toolkit.

<?php
if ("" == ""){
// WA_ClearSession
$clearAll = TRUE;
$clearThese = explode(",","");
if($clearAll){
foreach ($_SESSION as $key => $value){
unset($_SESSION[$key]);
}
}
else{
foreach($clearThese as $value){
unset($_SESSION[$value]);
}
}
}
?>

What page is it on? Maybe it needs a session_start on top of the page so it can clear it properly?

It is on the visitor_LogOut page and at the top of the page I added a session start but it didn't change it

Did you post a support incident? What is your incident number? Somebody will have to help you debug this, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Same Issue

I'm experiencing the same issue with my web site in that when the Log Out page is accessed it should be clearing the session, but doesn't. Same code as above, but with the session_start. It's Out-of-the-box code / I haven't touched it. Any thoughts on why it doesn't work?
