Cookie issues in Firefox
« on: February 13, 2008, 03:30:39 PM »
So, after having some issues with Internet Explorer at work, I have switched to using Firefox.  The problem has become that I am used to entering in as my way to find this site.  However, whenever I do I am asked to log in again.

But... when I enter as my URL/URI it works fine and dandy.  Obviously, there's an issue with the scope of the cookie that keeps the handy dandy session information stored.  How hard would it be to a) change the cookie's scope to include all subdomains or b) force a redirect to when accessing ?

Just to chime in: I've been experiencing the same problem. I believe this is a new issue which started after the big relaunch.

Thanks for mentioning it, Jesse.

Direct access to the forum is the issue, as opposed to accessing it through the CMS framework. 

We used to have a separate forum, store, and news site.  Now they are all linked, with one login.  However, I left access to the old forum  directory open for people who didn't update your links when I made that announcement, or just didn't see it.

Access to this forum is best made by going here:

Going to or will still work (so bookmarks and links didn't break), but you will experience cookie issues. When I upgrade the CMS next I'll move the directories around and set up some mod_rewrites to fix that, but that's not going to happen until closer to Slammasters.
