The navigation bar disappears and don't understand where the rootview is

The problem I'm having is when I log out a user from the app, the navigation bar disappears and instead of showing up in the first tab bar as the user normally would do when signing in. The user instead shows up in the same tab as the log out button is placed(the third tab - the settings tab). It feels like that the app doesn't understand what the root view is(the first tab - the inbox tab) after signing out.

I want the user to show up in the first tab bar and not having to loose the navigation bar in the settings tab if the user log out and sign in again.

In the app I'm building I'm using a empty application with a Tab Bar Controller and a Navigation controller. The log out button is a button placed on a static cell in a table view

How can I fix this?

This is my code:

  • (IBAction)logOut:(id)sender { [PFUser logOut];

    [self dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];

    [self performSegueWithIdentifier:@"logOut" sender:self];


  • (void)prepareForSegue:(UIStoryboardSegue *)segue sender:(id)sender { if ([segue.identifier isEqualToString:@"logOut"]) { [segue.destinationViewController setHidesBottomBarWhenPushed:YES]; }

Where does your logOut segue take you? Perhaps you need to reset your tab bar controller to set the first tab as the active tab upon logging out?

[self.tabBarController setSelectedIndex:0];
