  • missing www results in logging out.

    I keep getting logged out when I click on a link that doesn't have www in it.

    this would log me out.
    this would not.

    As far as cookies are concerned and are two separate domains. I recommend sticking to one or the other.

    You can also try setting the cookies domain in the Admin CP to:

    Note the leading period.

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Cookies and HTTP Header Option -> Cookie Domain

      IMO, I would setup a rewrite rule that rewrites anything from to Do it as a 301 redirect so search engines will know it's been permanently moved to

      Like Steve said, and are two different domains.

          Good to hear you have your issue resolved. However, as I mentioned in my post, I would do a rewrite rule if you want consistency in search results. Like we said before and are viewed differently to Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc unless you setup a 301 rewrite rule that directs all traffic to the www version. This helps with search engine results. (if you care about search engine traffic )
