Cookie problem: when logged in WP logs out in BB, when logged in BB logs out of WP – help!
I recently updated my wordpress installation with a new theme; for the occasion plus some SEO reasons I moved the bbpress forum from forum.domain .com to http://www.domain.com/forum – the moving went ok and I have the website working fine (i’ve replaced all entries in the database relative to the forum position change – now the forum is in a subfolder of the wordpress installation, which is in the root)
except for one problem:
if a user is logged in in BBPress, it automatically logs out of WordPress; and viceversa: if a user logs in WordPress, it’s automatically logged out of BBpress – This is very annoying and confusing
also because in this new theme I developed for BB/WP, I’ve placed a link to register/login in both wordpress and bbpress pages; when the user logs in, it should display “Hello, Username!” – When the user logs out or is unregistered, displays another message plus links to register or log in – therefore it’s confusing for users because they are logged in BBpress but from the WordPress page they are told they’re logged out (in fact they are)
I’m making all users registering from BBPress – however sometimes they might want to comment the WordPress blog posts
the integration is working otherwise fine, because I’ve also the BB/WP synchronization plugin installed (blog posts are republished in the forums and forum discussion replies appear correctly in the blog post comment thread)
the only issue is cookies – how to solve this?
thank you very much
