  • Cookie issues with vBulletin 5

    Seems to be an issue with cookies, really annoying, like most cookie problems.

    Steps to replicate

    1. Visit
    2. Login (do NOT check "remember me")
    3. Visit a "Customer Only Forum" like Licensed customer feedback.
    4. Do no further action for the cookie timeout period (15 minutes I think).
    5. Refresh the page, and be logged out. (Working as intended up to this point).
    6. Get the "You do not have permission to view this page" and login using the top navigation bar
    7. Be redirected to the forum home page (
    8. Try to visit the "Licensed customer feedback" forum. You can't. Says you aren't logged in.
    9. View any other forum, you're still logged in.
    10. Try to view licensed customer feedback, still shows you logged out for this one forum.
    11. Go view any other forum, you're still logged in.

    Noticed it on a customers site who wanted to test an upgrade, also able to reproduce it here at (using the above steps)

    You can also do this by visiting a private forum guests don't have permisson to login and you won't have access either.
