    Frage Automatic logout

    Hi community,

    I've tested that 'automatic logout' disconnects immediately the member. But I don't understand why, when and how to use it.
    Thanks for your your explanations.

    You put that module on your logout page. In Contao 4 (or 5?) this is (or will be?) a specific page type instead.

    Hi Spooky,
    Thanks for the answer.

    I'm still using Contao 3.5.

    For the moment, I have the login module on each private page so the member can disconnect with the embedded logout button.

    If I understand well, I have to create a specific log-out page where there will only be this logout module. So, I have to create a log-out link or button on each private page to go to this logout page which will disconnect the member.

    What the difference with the login(/out) module ?

    Nothing, the Login Module just happens to have a Logout Button as well.

    ok. So logout module is useful only when not using the login module.

    Last question : using the login module, I've chosen a redirect page for when the member connects. Whith the same module, is there a way to specify a redirect page when he disconnects ? Or will I have to use the automatic logout module for that ?

    No, it's still useful. You usually place it on your "Logout" page.

    The "Automatic logout" Module has redirect settings, yes.
