The documentation describes how authenticate.php supplies user information so that the user can be set up and/or logged into Vanilla. I have set up a test script that just echoes some sample user information, and that works fine.
I have also set up a sample signout.php page that basically does nothing. When I try to sign out of Vanilla, the page is displayed as expected. Now when I go back to Vanilla, the user is still logged in. This happens even if I return a blank page from authenticate.php
I'm using ProxyConnect v1.7. What am I doing wrong? Should the user not be logged out of Vanilla, and then sent to the external application to be logged out of there too? Only the second step seems to be happening.
PS Thinking about it, what should the external application signout page do once the user has been logged out of that application? Is there anyway to send the user back to where they were when they clicked on "sign out", or is the user expected to be sent to some page on the CMS?
Just noticed that the signout URL just replaces the normal signout URL, so the user is simply sent to the external application and left logged into the forum. How does the user actually get logged out of Vanilla?
