As Designed Banned user unable to logout and let someone else login on same computer

    I was testing out some of the functionality of Xenforo and noticed that if a user logs in but was banned and then attempts to logout so someone else can login (under a different account), that the system doesn't allow them to. So effectively, the user is stuck and no one else can log-into the site. I don't know if this is a cookie that is set or based on IP or how it works but the banned user should be able to at least log out of Xenforo.

    For example a family uses 1 computer. They have two accounts for the forum. Mom gets banned but Dad doesn't for some reason. Mom is unable to logout or do anything and Dad goes to login but can't because Mom can't log out. So users are stuck.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    That is by design.

    OK good to know. So is this done by IP or cookies? So I guess the whole family is stuck until the admin un-bans them

    It's done by cookie, so they can obviously get around it, but in general, this is intentional as Paul said.

    Never knew that banned users couldn't log out... sneaky (y)

    Is there a way to override this? To allow banned members to log out?
