  • salt login cookies & path

    ok here is the prolem

    i have 6 forums that I want to go back and forth with one login

    without logging in over and over again

    i used the same cookie path for all forums, but I still need to relogin due to different 3 char salt string

    is it possible for me to set the salt tag to the same for all 6 forums and

    be able to go back and forth between forums without re-login?

    The forums will overwrite each other's cookies if you set them all to use the same cookie scope.

    Integrating multiple forums in that way is complicated. For help with this I recommend you post on, the official vB hacking site.

      would the cookies become corrupted if

      i set all the forums to use the same cookies PATH to /


      set $cookieprefix = "different one for each forum" in the config.php file

        I think changing the prefix will prevent them from overwriting each other's cookies, yes.
