My site shows up as www and non www but logs people out if visiting one or the other

    Not sure if I have my .htaccess setup wrong or what but anyone can visit our site with www or no www (our site is also setup with SSL) - but if someone logs in via www.truckmountforums.com and then tries to visit without the www. it doesnt show up as logged into the site.

    What should I do on my end?

    It's only setting a cookie on either the www or bare domain, not both. If you want the bare domain with SSL, so this:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !^on$
    RewriteRule (.*) https://yourdomain/$1 [R,L]

    Set the cookie domain in config.php to solve this issue.

    Well I want to redirect the non www to www, what should it be for this? Because above is for non www right?

    Thanks and here is a copy of my htaccess:

    #    Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    #    cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
    #<IfModule mod_security.c>
    #    SecFilterEngine Off
    #    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    ErrorDocument 401 default
    ErrorDocument 403 default
    ErrorDocument 404 default
    ErrorDocument 500 default
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
        #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
        #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
        RewriteBase /
        RewriteRule [^/]+/([\d]+)-.+-([\d]+).html showthread.php?t=$1&page=$2 [NC,L]
        RewriteRule [^/]+/([\d]+)-.+.html showthread.php?t=$1 [NC,L]
        #    This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
        #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

    If you want to redirect all non www to www
    force all http traffic to https
    set the 301 (permanently moved) redirect

    Add this to your .htaccess (right below your ErrorDocuments)
    # Force non-ssl and non www to https
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.YOURDOMAIN\.com$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    If you only want to redirect non www to www (Although if you have SSL, I'd force it now) Add this to .htaccess below ErrorDocuments:
    # non-www to www
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^YOURDOMAIN.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.YOURDOMAINcom/$1 [R=301,L]

    If you don't think you need the 301 directives, (You probably do and they can't hurt)
    Change the [R=301,L]
    Also, have you told Google which urls to display in Web Master Tools? there is a setting for www nor non www

    all rewrite rule glory goes to @Jake Bunce who helped me with the above

    So if I wanted to go from www to non-www I would add this to my htaccess:

    # www to non-www
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^mydomain\.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mydomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    It doesn't seem to redirect for admin pages. Is that normal?
