How do I logout?The blog owner, here, is not being completely facetious, or obtuse.
Many applications, on the web and in other scenarios, have a "Logout Complete" display - maybe with a link, to login, again.
You have now logged out of XXXXXXX. Thank you for visiting!And "Login" would be clickable, and would take you back to the Login screen.
Google, on the other hand, takes you, immediately, to the Google "One account" display, after you click on "Sign Out".
They show an empty "Password" box, and a button to "Sign in" - and that is supposed to indicate that the Blogger / Google account is now loggedout (logged out? signed out? signedout?).
In other cases, the Google "One account" display may not be shown - and the account owner may remain logged in. This may involve aggressive cookies / script filters - or possibly malfunctioning Google code.
Some people may not notice the "Sign in" button, when the display is shown - and think that they are still signed in. Others may not notice the link
Sign in with a different account- and this may cause more confusion. And a few may have my concerns, about what they are doing - whether I should logout, log out, signout, or sign out. And in 2011, Blogger infrastructure problems prevented successful logout for some account owners.
I'll observe here, that the Navbar (when present) contains a link captioned "Sign Out", which links to
http://www.blogger.com/logout-redirect.gWith interesting prefixes and suffixes. There we see Blogger using "logout" and "sign out", in the same process. I try to use "login" / "logout", consistently.
All of this is more details, which Blogger / Google never manages to concern themselves with, when they design their glittery displays and wizards. And all of this may cause some confusion, with blog owners who are just learning to turn their computers on.
So considering all of these concerns together, it may be possible for some blog owners - particularly this with multiple Blogger accounts, unintentionally setup - to have a normal reason for confusion.
How do I logout from my Blogger?or maybe
I can only use my new account, the old account is gone!They're not being completely obtuse.
In some cases, having overlooked the Blogger "blind login" policy, the simplest solution may be to just logout then login, again.
