XF 1.4 Allow cookies on whole domain?


Our forum is on www.MySite.com/forum/
We custom built a Glassdoor competitor for our specific niche on www.MySite.com/reviews/
Most of the content will come from forum members, so /reviews/ accounts are connected to forum accounts. We want forum sessions to be seamlessly shared so that users don't have to log in a second time when they go to /reviews/

Can you provide guidance on how to allow cookies to be used on the whole www.MySite.com domain, instead of currently being limited to /forum/ ?

Also, do any potential issues with such an implementation come to mind?

It's going to require custom development to integrate the forum with the reviews software.

Brogan is right that it will require custom development for that part, but you can change the cookie config via config.php: https://xenforo.com/help/config-php-options/

See the options surrounding the cookie path and/or domain. Note that the path defaults to "/" so the cookies should already be available in /forum/ and /reviews/.


Yes, already did the custom development to integrate the forum user accounts with the reviews user accounts. Just sorting out sharing cookies. Thanks, Mike, we'll look into the resources you provided.
