Admin Excile Pro logout

Hi Micheal,

I have a current subscription to Admin Excile pro. #561 2018-11-12 21:06

Is there a way to change the admin logout URL ?

When I logout from the backend it redirects me to example.com/administrator/index.php . This in turn generates a 404 error as the format is not example.com/administrator?one=two .
This is then logged as an attack, so I get locked out if I log in and out in quick succession.

I can't seem to find a setting to change the logout url.
If it makes a difference, new registrations are not allowed and no login module/menu item for login is published.

Regards, Brendan

The logout redirection sends you back to the /administrator URL. That's hardcoded into Joomla. I'd love to change that, but I haven't been able to come up with a way the core devs would accept to change it in the core.

Something you can do is enable the "allow re-entry" setting, which opens a short window where you can immediately log back in without a key. When enabled, you can specify how many seconds re-entry is allowed with no key. When enabled, logging out will display the login form (no 404, no strike) from which you can navigate away.

Hi,
Thanks for confirming.
Yes, I know about the re-entry setting. Maybe this is a topic for a new plugin, or an additional override setting in adminexcile to override the core, without changing it.

I noticed this problem when I was setting up privileges for a second admin in the backend and was switching between 2 different users to check and adjust permissions in the back end.

I'll have another look at that problem. I'm always learning new things and coming up with new and interesting ways to do things I'm not supposed to do :) Maybe a loophole exists that I didn't see previously.

I just started testing in the new Joomla 4.0.0 beta 1 - so I'll be in the code for the next few days. I'll have a poke around and see what rules I can break.
