Cookies work for admins but not regular user

  • I just installed WordPress and bbPress on http://www.youthforwildlife.org and they are sharing a user database, which works fine. And it seems that when I login as an administrator or keymaster I can go back and forth between the bbpress and wp but when I login as a regular user, it asks me to relogin when I switch between them.

    I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me!

    Which versions of bbPress and WordPress are you using?

    Are you doing all of this logging in and out on the same computer?

    Have you tried manually deleting cookies and logging in again?

    What folders are WordPress and bbPress located in, relative to each other?

    Sorry,

    Wordpress 2.51 installed in the root directory

    bbPress 0.9.0.2 installed in /forums

    I am using the same computer and logging in and out but I have been clearing all session, domain and path cookies each time.

    Hmm this is an interesting scenario, one that I never made it around to checking since I always do my work as an Admin or KeyMaster.

    I did just check my install of 2.7rc1 and bbPress Alpha-2 and I do not experience this type of issue.

    I am assuming that you’ve checked the obvious stuff from all of the other integration topics here? Making sure your SECRET_KEY’s match and cookie domains are copied over, etc?

    Is there a big change of role with those user accounts maybe?

    Keymaster and admin remain admin, but for users there are several roles possible. Maybe its related to that? Role mapping?

    I got a new secret key and it seems to be working now. I must have just been seeing things when it worked for my admin account but not for my regular user account. I mean, that’s not possible is it? Either way, its working. Thanks for the replies.
