"Sign In" vs. "Log Out"

(Michael Downey) #1

Continuing the discussion from Icons. Icons everywhere:

Why is the this button called Log Out when the opposite button is called Sign In?

(Jeff Atwood) #2

Good point, I will fix that later tonight.

Consensus seems to be Sign In was slightly better:


but “sign in” is marginally more friendly and probably the preferred usage, though I’ll miss the nautical association

Link to sign up and sign in?

There’s also “You need to log in to see that topic.” when a non-authenticated user tries to access a thread that they don’t have permission to see.

(The reason this happens is because there seems to be a bug in the /categories view that lists all topics in subcategories for anonymous users, even if that subcategory is private/restricted to a group. I’ll post a separate bug for that shortly.)

Unauthenticated users can see topics in private categories
(Jeff Atwood) #4

OK, those are now fixed in latest. If you find any more let me know.

Updated to discourse (eedb0df) but still seeing the “Log Out” button. Even tried a completely new session (incognito mode) but no change. Am I missing a step?

Not the right revision


Takes a while for the smoke test passed build to appear.

(Michael Downey) #7

That worked. Thanks.

Kind of an expectation mis-alignment on the update perhaps. If I click on the revision link when an update is available, I look at the most recent commit (which was your 288a3199f98d2a0e6e71c36f519a1c884af5c824) and assume that’s what I’ll get. In theory I should/could pay closer attention to the commit numbers but you know how humans are. :confused:

Updating so quickly is probably an edge case anyway.

It’s because of the “tests-passed” branch - basically, there’s a test to make sure that the browser at least renders something - and docker_manager pulls from there.
