Problems with "Signing Out" of Vanilla Forums

edited May 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I am testing a new installation of Vanilla and have run into one problem. It does not happen every time but it does seem to happen about 90% of the time that if I click the "Sign Out" button to sign out of my forums that the web browser appears to be redirected to a non-existent page. Basically, it takes me to a page with a light blue background with "Page Not Found" and immediately beneath that it says "The page you were looking for could not be found." It does log me out properly first but I'm not sure why I am getting the Page Not Found error. Is there some way to set where a user gets directed when signing out?

Thanks in advance.

    I tried enabling Pretty URL's to see if it would help but still no luck, signing out takes me to a "Page not found" error message. However, when I look at the url that it is taking me too I see this...

    You can see that after the root of the domain we have: /forum/forum/entry/signout/VPB5S0KE22VJ?Target=categories%2Fall

    If I manually delete the extra "/forum" so there is only one then it does take me to the login page which is what I would expect.

    Does anyone know what may be causing the extra "/forum" to appear in the url and know how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    I did some more digging and found another post about this issue. It seems that the problem is caused by using the dashboard to change the home page from "/discussions" to "/categories/all" or "/categories/discussions". Changing it back to just /discussions seems to have fixed it. Hopefully this will be fixed in a later version.

    Personally, I modified the Error 404 Route from Dashboard/Routes to redirect to categories/discussions

    So in this case whenever you/your visitor encounters a 404/error page, then you or he is automatically redirected to index page (which mine is categories/discussions)

    Hope it helps.

    Good alternative, jebuskrust. I'll use it too.
