The Chat is telling me I need to login to chat, and when I go to login from there it tells me the meta data is old and to login to any stack exchange site to update it. But I can't login because I'm already logged in and cannot find the logout button....

They removed it recently from the main banner. It's now on your main site profile page. There's 3 links: edit | add openid | log out.

meta.SO question - Logout link now missing

    Thank you. I checked my profile page but didn't realize I had to be viewing the profile page of my main user, not the Programmers one.

  • Well, it turns out that @Rachel asked the opposite of a stupid question. The answer was actually quite unintuitive. Mar 10, 2011 at 19:48
  • @Adam: I didn't use the link much before they changed it, and I was surprised too. I think I'd prefer it back where it was. :)

It now appears at the top of every page - move your mouse over the little down arrow to the left of your user name, and you'll see logout in there along with some other useful links.

  • Noticed that, thanks. The question was originally asked back when you had to navigate to the profile page of your main stack exchange user to find the logout link.
