  • Cookie naming question

    I notice that when a cookie is created for a user, it is named as follows: [email protected]

    I'm curious to know if there's a way to have vB name the users' cookes without the 'www'?
    In other words, name them as: [email protected]

    I beleive, (correct me if I am wrong), but if the user logs in from it will write the cookie with the www in it, and if they just go to then it will write without the www.
    I may be wrong, but thats my understanding.

      Sinecure is correct - the cookie is written differently if the user goes to as opposed to and you may also find that if you go to and login on you will not be logged in on or vice-versa.

      You can make it use a specific domain (although I don't know if this will override the www) by going to vBulletin Options > HTTP Headers > Cookie Domain and set it to
      (note the two dots).
