LoginStatus not logging users out?

Have you noticed your LoginStatus control doesn't log the user out when you click Logout? Well, to fix this all you need to do is add an id attribute.

This works

<asp:LoginStatus runat="server" id="loginstatus1" />

This doesn't work

<asp:LoginStatus runat="server" />

Searching the web, there are a lot of people complaining that the LoginStatus doesn't work properly. Solutions are rare, special thanks to Ric Hayman for finding this.

I have a LoginStatus control on asn ASP 3.5 site master page. It has an ID specified. I take all the defaults. It is sitting inside a LoginView as demonstrated below. Logout fails. No exceptions are thrown. Any ideas?

<div id="TopLoginBox"><br />

  <asp:LoginName ID="LoginName1" runat="server" Csslass="TopLoginName"  FormatString="You are logged in as {0} " /><br /><br />

    <div id="TopLoginView">

      <asp:LoginView ID="LoginView1" runat="server" >


          <asp:RoleGroup Roles="Manager">


              <div id="TopLoginStatusBox">

                 <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" 

                                                                    NavigateUrl="/Administration/Default.aspx">Manage Site</asp:HyperLink> or                                      

                   <asp:LoginStatus ID="LoginStatus1" runat="server" LogoutText="Logout" />






      <asp:LoginStatus ID="TopLoginStatus" CssClass="TopLoginStatus" runat="server" LoginText="Login" />
