XF 1.3 Cookies: 2 Domains, 1 Forum

    I have one forum installation installed at http://noobist.com/community. The website noobist.com is part of a WordPress Multisite network, which includes noobist.tv. For some reason, http://noobist.tv/community also points to the same forum installation (same software, database, etc.).

    The only difference: cookies don't carry between the domains.

    What are my options here? Can I enable cross-domain cookies so people stay logged in? Should I just set up a permanent redirect from noobist.tv/community > noobist.com/community? I'd sort of prefer the former, but maybe the latter is the only way.

    You should perform a redirect if you wish the community to be at .com. Otherwise, cross domain cookies aren't really a "thing" and would require an add-on to create both.

    Well, since Noobist.TV is a separate brand, it'd be nice to have both functioning. But I haven't always had much luck finding addon developers for cross-domain-type products. Ah, well.

    Thanks.

    There was an error adding the redirect.

    You cannot redirect "community" to "http://noobist.com/community" as this will cause a redirection loop because "/home2/noobist/public_html/community" is at the same place as "/home2/noobist/public_html/community".

    Since noobist.tv is part of the WPMU network, they all sit on the same root directory.

    What was your redirect code? And how were you redirecting?

    .htacess redirects will allow proper domain redirection.

    I need to choose either a file or directory to redirect. Sadly, there are no files or directories that differentiate the two, because both domains share the same directories/files. :<

    A direct .htacdrss rule will allow you to redirect based on domain. I'm mobile so I really can't give you the rule, but a quick search of Google should help.

    I already have some rewrite rules in my .htaccess. Should I be concerned about adding more rules? Here's what I have currently:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Additional rules would be fine. You would need to add them to the top though (or at least before that last block as that's a catch-all).
