Is there anything we can do to enable a user to switch between multiple devices without being logged out from one when they log in on another?

Enable Multiple Host Login:

"This option allows users to login into the forum from different computers/browsers and not terminate their existing sessions on other computers/browsers. WARNING: If you enable this option it is highly recommended that you disable URL sessions."

Ok so apparently this is causing issues with people being able to logout, when they click logout they just get sent back to the home screen but stay logged in

Anything we can do to solve that?

As I told you on our forum, Laura, the issue isn't the multiple login option, its that some members can't log out of the forum after the upgrade and disabling the multiple login option was the only way I could find of the forum allowing users to log out. This bug has (again as I told you earlier) been reported by more than ourselves.
