I manage multiple BOINC accounts (mine, and my wife's), from a single browser. However, I cannot figure out how to sign out of an account, on your project. Are you erroneously hiding the sign out or log off hyperlinks? I can't seem to find them, anywhere...

Heh no, ironically the links were removed from the account page in the latest BOINC code. You now have to login to logout... almost like the Windows start button:

Login.

Actually it is a bit tiresome to go through that process - added a new logout menu item under "Your BURP" when you are logged in. It should work like the old one from the account page did.

Thanks, the new "Log out" link in the menu at the left, is helpful, and works for me.

I'll still forward this on to the BOINC devs, in case they made a mistake.

I don't seem to have the same problem on other sites so it was probably just moved somewhere else that isn't included in the BURP site - for instance on SETI@home the logout is now a submenu in the top right of the site. There's nothing else in the menu, so it feels a bit misplaced (also took a little while to spot it, it is not on the front page).

[Edit] It was this commit from 2011 that removed it and moved it into a new menu: https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/commit/a3cccc85e64b6ce83625310b8e8e632a4e1f967a

remove funky "log out" link from user page
- web: go to home page on logout,
not dorky "you are logged out" page


[Edit2] Ah, it was moved into the default header. We don't use the BOINC header. Hence why it has disappeared. Mystery solved.
