I usually check my control panel just before logging out. But I don't see a way to log out from there so I have to go back to the forums home page and scroll to the bottom to log out. Can we get a logout button on cp or is there one already there that I have just been too blind to see?
This is on our list of requests but at the moment the only way I can bring it about is to install a hack - something I try to avoid. vBulletin does have this feature listed for its upcoming version though so when it becomes available I'll download it. Until then sorry for the inconvenience.
