upgrading to RC1 breaks WP cookie sharing (for me).

  • deadlyhifi


    I had WP2.7.1 and bbPress1.06a working perfectly.

    Now I’ve replaced 1.06a with RC1. Kept exactly the same settings (apart from a duplicate bbp database – which is identical in all but name). Same wordpress integration bumpf in the bb-config file.

    Then I run the database upgrade. And it all works as expected apart from the cookie integration.

    Logging in via WP does log me into bbP but I can’t log into WP unless I go through /wp-admin (cookies spat out by each login all correspond.)

    Anyone else had a similar problem or offer a solution?

    I have upgraded the bb-integration plugin in WP and if I switch back to the previous version of the forum it all works fine again. So I can only pressume something odd is happening in RC1.

    Check for mismatches between any manually set cookie paths, particularly mismatched trailing slashes.

    Same problem here. There are no mismatches between my manually set cookie paths. However, is there a list of all cookie paths that could be set?

    All I did was upgrading to RC1. Before that, with the latest alpha-release, this problem did not occur.

    I am using WP 2.7.1 (not WPMU).

    Oh, I forgot, add this to your bb-config.php

    define('WP_AUTH_COOKIE_VERSION', 1);

    When you upgrade to WordPress 2.8 later, you will need to remove that line.

    Great! As far as I am concerned, this has solved the issue.

    Thank you, Sambauers!

    @tomdebruin: what about you?



    That fixes it instantly. Thanks very much.

    Yep, that solved the problem for me as well. Thanks a lot! Please post a note somewhere where everyone will see it because I bet this will cause a headache for numerous people…

    hmmm… sadly it is not working for me. I added that line to bb-config.php, but no dice.

    I will dig through my config files see if anything is different. But it was working perfectly until RC-1.

    The release of the RC-1 bbPress integartion plug-in fixed it for me! Happy Day!
