    Unhappy Cookies don't seem to work right

    I don't know why but vBulletin has been acting strange since I moved it / upgraded it to 3.8.2

    Every inactive hour it logs people out even though they have the remember me box checked. I've reset the cookies, and when I had no modifications installed it did that.

    Is there an alternative to the cookie? Or is there a way to fix this problem...

    Is this for hostingtropolis.com?

    That domain has canonicalization issues, which can cause troubles with cookies.

    Cookies for the www and the non-www domains are seen as separate and unrelated cookies. When a visitor clicks a link that takes them from the www to the non-www version of the page (or vice versa), they are switching to a different set of cookies.

    I'd suggest picking either the www or the non-www version of the domain and using a 301 redirect to force the choice.

    It's for wabuf.com/forums

    Seems vBulletin has been throwing a fit since I went from 3.80 to 3.82

    Wabuf also has canonicalization issues, but they are even stranger.

    When I use the www, I get a blue theme. When I don't use the www, I get a green theme.

    I'd fix the canonicalization issue and see if the cookie problems start to disappear.

    It's randomly selected and it seems I've managed to fix it somehow, I did some sort of tweaking on the cookie selection and it seemed to work.

    You still need to fix the canonicalization issues of you may have problems with the search engines.

    The search engines should see one and only one version of a URL.

    When I add the 301 redirect in Direct Admin, it messes up wabuf.com/forums and makes it go to www.wabuf.comforums/

    Any ideas why it would do that?

    EDIT: maybe I need to recompile apache or something hmmm....

    Add a '/' to your one side of your redirect, or delete the '/' from the other side of your redirect.
