Hi Rhett,

This has been added as a feature request which you can vote for on the Exchange Roadmap.  I don't have a timeline for if/when it will be added, though.  

In the meantime, if you feel comfortable (@kwchin2002ithemes, too), you can use the following filter to redirect where they go after logging out:  it_exchange_redirect_on_logout  You'll find that in the class.pages.php file in /lib/pages.  

Let us know if you have any additional questions!

Is there a way this could be resolved by code somehow?  We are having the same problem also -

Hi Elise,

Thanks for responding to my message. It does kind of put me in a weird place with my projects though.

Imagine a member signs up for a membership and uses the membership area and decides to log out
and is presented with the store page when almost any membership script will take them to a page
that says logged out or something similar. This would be very confusing and create a poor user experience.
Ditto for the e-commerce store.

I was going to use Premise by Studiopress for the membership site because it works very well in many
areas including a traditional log out experience except that there is no way to create a members only
menu without coding or plugins. I was going to use Woocommerce for my shopping cart client

Builder solved this dilemma for me with its custom layouts and menus and with the recent Exchange
membership add-on, I thought I had the best of both worlds but the log out experience is a huge
letdown. Without a familiar log out experience for clients and customers, I'm almost forced to use
Premise at $165 per client. Not my preferred choice I assure you.

If there is some other option I can take to address this one detail while this feature is being considered
for a future release please let me know.It would save me a ton of work,time and money.

Hi getwebmedia,

This is the expected behavior.  When your user clicks the logout link, it logs them out behind the scenes, they don't need to actually go to a logout page, and then takes them back to the store.  There isn't a setting for where the logout redirects to in Exchange at this time.  I can add this as a feature request for a future release, however, I don't have a timeline for if or when it will be added.  

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

I have installed Exchange on a couple of sites for clients and I'm excited by the possibilities of Exchange but I can't seem to figure out why my log out page re-directs to the Store page. I have tried the standard Exchange page found in the settings and creating a Wordpress page and used the shortcode provided in Exchange page setting but each version when clicked on just re-directs to the Store page. Is there a setting I'm missing? I have two projects in limbo waiting on a solution.
