  • Logging out - if I remove www

    Hi all,

    If I login with my user name & password at my vB forum - http://www.testwebsite.com/forum then it's fine.

    Then if I remove www from above URL - http://testwebsite.com/forum , the login does not stay. It logs out automatically. I need to relogin.

    Did I mess up any settings (like cookies) ?

    Yes this is a cookie issue.

        One way to resolve it is to force your site's URL to include the WWW, either in your webserver/site config, a vbulletin add-on, or through a configuration in a .htaccess file.

        Also update the URL in the "Site Name / URL / Contact Details" section of your vb settings.

            Current setting is (blank)

            Do I need to fill in the Custom Setting ? What should I put there ?

            Note: I tried the other setting in the dropdown (i.e, .testwebsite.com ) and it did not work !

              you don't forget to use "remember me" option on login?

              ".testwebsite.com" should work, may be your browser show cached page? try to clear browser cache (setting or may be ctrl+f5)

              personally I suggest you to use htaccess for reditect, like motowebmaster say
