phpbb3 integration

So I sent email asking about phpbb3 integration sales say yes so I buy photo post.

why do uses have login 2 times. once into the rest of my site and once into photo post?

for some reason I can make posts in the support forum. I can only make a post in the presales forum.

We support the phpbb3 user login if you have to login twice most likely its a cookie issue. You did specify the correct phpbb3 cookie name where asked on install correct?

Here is a thread on cookies and how yours should be set

ok doing some more testing. it does not look like photopost using my cookie name that is set.

the top one is what what I get when I login using photopost
_u 58
_k 48afc0de0dc33148
_sid 9e1be9b3a413601634b8841af5167803

is what i get when I login anywhere else on our site.
PHPSESSID 7t5894sajphbpou563rd33mrs2
phpbb3_d6auh_u 58
phpbb3_d6auh_sid de631654dac00611a29b9622207c7135

I checked in the database pp_settings table
varname = cookieprefix
settings = phpbb3_d6auh

I searched every file and could only cookieprefix 2 times
once in install.php and once in upgrade.php

I could not find anywhere where it the setcookie used cookieprefix

setcookie("$cName","", time() - 3600, $Globals['cookie_path'], $Globals['domain_path'] );
setcookie("$cName","", time() - 3600, $Globals['domain_path'] );
setcookie("$cName","", time() - 3600, "/");
setcookie("$cName","", time() - 3600);

how do I get Content visible to verified customers only. fixed? I entered my lic number in the user cp

You did not enter the cookie name where asked. It is not cookie prefix. It is cookie name I beleive setting 165 in the settings table

You can rerun install and correctly rerun install that will work. ;)

settings 165 Im not user SMF forum it says Only needed for users of SMF forums I did not find any where in the install directions that says PHPBB3 users enter your cookie name in the SMF cookie name.

what cookie name do I put enter?

Setting 175 its the smfcookie variable.

Thats used for the cookiename in phpbb3 smf and wowbb forum integrations and on install we ask for the cookie name on step 4 of install.
