    Vbulletin forum does not seem to refresh!

    Hello, I'm sure you've all had this problem and all know how frustrating it can be!!

    Right, My problem is say for example. You go to the main page and you're not logged in. You login via entering your User/Name via the top right login.

    You login, And you go to the redirect page. You go back to the main page and OMG? IM NOT LOGGED IN!! but you are, If you do a Hard refresh, CTRL F5 or right click reload [F5 doesent always work].

    Once you've refreshed you are logged in, and you can look around SOME parts of the forum. And post fine. And then theres others when you're not logged in.

    I've also found that when you post, And you're redirected back to the page you were on, you can not see your new post or edit or what ever you've changed.

    I *THINK* this problem is caused by VBseo that i've installed. And when i remove my .htaccess i dont really have a problem. Here is my htaccess and you can look at what i might have done wrong.

    the following line (add '#' at the beginning)
    # to disable mod_rewrite functions.
    # Please note: you still need to disable the hack in
    # the vBSEO control panel to stop url rewrites.
    RewriteEngine On

    # Some servers require the Rewritebase directive to be
    # enabled (remove '#' at the beginning to activate)
    # Please note: when enabled, you must include the path
    # to your root vB folder (i.e. RewriteBase /forums/)
    #RewriteBase /

    #RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.[MYSITE]\.net
    #RewriteRule (.*) http://www.[MYSITE]/$1 [L,R=301]

    RewriteRule ^((urllist|sitemap_).*\.(xml|txt)(\.gz)?)$ vbseo_sitemap/vbseo_getsitemap.php?sitemap=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(admincp/|modcp/|cron)
    RewriteRule ^((archive/)?(.*\.php(/.*)?)?)$ vbseo.php [L,QSA]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^(admincp|modcp|clientscript|cpstyles|images)/
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ vbseo.php [L,QSA]

    Just so you know, The domain is [mysite].net

    I've set the cookie domain up as ".[mysite].net"

    Please help, This anoys me alot and many members complain!

    It sounds like you have isolated the problem to your vBSEO addon. Another possible solution is to enable this option:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Cookies and HTTP Header Options -> Add No-Cache HTTP Headers

      Alright, I'm giving that a shot right now. I'll give it a few hours and see what happens..

      Although, As far as my .htaccess is concernd that's fine?

        I can't validate your htaccess file. You may want to ask the vBSEO people to look at it.
