WP/BB Cookie not shared

  • I’ve just installed (yesterday) the newest stable versions of WP and BBPress but am having problems with the cookie integration.

    Account information is working and shared (you can login and register on with BB or WP), but being logged in/out of one does not effect the other.

    My bb-config.php didn’t have a SECRET_KEY, but i’ve added one now :-

    define(‘BB_SECRET_KEY’,’blah-blah-blah’); // (ok not exactly blah blah blah)

    and put the same (omitting BB_) in wp-config.php.

    I also set the following in wp-config.php

    define(‘COOKIE_DOMAIN’, ‘’);

    define(‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/’);

    This doesn’t seem to be required in bb-config.php (? is that right ?)

    bbPress is installed at

    I’m not sure what i’m doing wrong, it’s probably simple, but I just seem to find lots of conflicting documentation for different versions and nothing i’ve tried seems to have worked.

    Other question, will there be a conflict between and as I’ve set cookie_domain to omit www. but when public users will likely prepend www to the domain name.

  • After further reading, have discovered this is a compatibility issue between versions of WP and BB I am operating, will downgrade or upgrade one or other as appropriate.
