  • How to make new Cookie Domain change take effect for all users?

    I changed the Cookie Domain setting on my forums so that my main web site can read the vB cookie and greet registered forum users with a different welcome message than the non-members. Now that the change has been made on the server, I need to have some way for the new cookie with the new Cookie Domain setting to be set for all existing users so that my main web site has permission to read it.

    I know if I ask users to clear their cookies or login/logout it will be a mess, so I'd like to force the new cookie if possible. Can this be done? Can I force the users to re-login somehow and, if so, will this set the new cookie? Any other ideas aside from asking everyone to logout and login manually? Thanks.

    Having your users logout and then login is the only method that comes to mind.

    This script might make it easier for your users to clear their cookies.
