Re: Cookie Hell: WPMU + BBPress = bloodshot eye balls

I fixed it! o/

Remember how the cookies “looked” identical?

Well they weren’t.

The cookies created by bbpress added the hash to the end of the cookie name.

Both Safari and Camino didn’t reveal this, but Flock did. I was using these other browsers as a testing platform because I needed to clear cookies in between each test.

I added:

$bb->usercookie = 'wordpressuser';
$bb->passcookie = 'wordpresspass';

To my bbpress config to solve the problem. (which I found on one of the links you sent me)

I actually like the idea of the cookie name including the hash. Isn’t this more secure? Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t this make it near impossible for another site to read that cookie?

Thanks for your help Trent!
