wait....Jimmy Olsen knows the dynamic duo's identities, but not Supes?Huh?

Even in the frequently wacky "Weisingerverse" I always thought this was extremely far-fetched.

Batman and Robin tell Jimmy Olsen their secret identities, but otherwise not even their closest friends, including Commissioner Gordon?

Yeah, right.

I think Edmond Hamilton, in the pages of World's Finest Comics in the mid-1960s came up with this dumb idea.

Much as I greatly admire Hamilton as probably the greatest Superman (and better than average Batman and Legion author) writer of the 1950s and 1960s - he wrote a high proportion of the best Superman stories of this era, in my opinion - I think this is one of his few failings.

I can't recall any post-1970 story where Jimmy displayed this knowledge, so the idea may have been quietly dropped ...

I can.

The Superfriends comic.

Jimmy used the knowledge of Batman and Robin's ID to help the Superfriends defeat Felix Faust.

i think supermonkeys got the bright idea, jimmy learnt it while he was in the phantom zone...

sure he  acts all high and mighty in the end of the story, but he isnt above learning OTHER HEROES identites even though it "might be tortured out of him"

jeez, jimmy olsen, what a hypocrite

I think you kind of miss the point of that story, poor Jimmy was being serious! But of course no one ever takes Jimmy seriously Sad Wink

I have long thought that the Super Friends is about as non-canonical in relation to the regular DC Universe as you can get ...

yes and no, it did introduce those cool international heroes The Global Guardians, which were actually brought into continuity in this issue:
