I have been through every setting listed in the forums and FAQ and I cannot get my cookies right. Here are my settings in both VB and PP, they match up perfectly. I have also entered my vb license (not my customer number) number. Just like all the other posts say (I have been searching all day) I have to log in seperately to pp after being logged into vb. I also get logged out of vb after goint to PP and cleared my cookies after each setting.
(settings for both PP and VB)
Prefix: bb (set in the config.php file for the vb side)
Could it be that my license number isn't getting read correctly? I checked at Vbulletin and it is right but I can't find it in my index.php, where it says in the FAQ to look for the number at the top. So I don't know what vb file contains the license info.
Okay, I tried it so many way I must have just changed it just before you got in there, sorry about that. I did try it with them matched though and I get the same result even now. Mabe I am missing a config somehwere, what happens is that after I login to vb then go to pp I have the menu as if I am logged in but when I click on a photo it tells me I have to register, then I have to login to pp before I can see anything.
Okay well you need to also check your VB License number and make sure it is correct. It does not seem correct as if I login to the forum the bbpassword is one thing and when I login to Photopost it changes
This is a tell tale sign the wrong variable has been entered in VB License
I checked it at vbulletin.com and that's the number they assigned me when I bought it. As I mentioned above I don't know where to reference it in any of the VB files, the FAQ says it's at the top of index.php (in the vb dir) but it's not.
double check the in the admin directory the index.php its at the top
However do some more testing with your cookies. I was unable to get a bbuserid and bbpassword cookie written logging into photopost.
Try reuploading all the photopost files incase this was an upgrade. The funny thing is when logging into your photopost with no cookies on my computer does not create any cookies from our files which are the userid and password cookies
Instead of that I get the lastvisit and lastactivity cookies normally created by the forum and I have not even been to the forum.
When I login to the forums (after clearing my cookies) and click on a photo it tells me I have to register, if I close my browser window and come back into the forums I am logged out again. I will keep digging and tinkering with it, there's gotta be a solution here some where with all these posts
Sorry to dig this out but i'm having the same problem. Seemed to work fine yesterday but now when I loginto the forums, photopost says i'm logged out.

However in the FAQ it says:
On PhotoPostDev.Com we use the PhotoPost config-inc.php settings:
$cookie_path = "/";
$cookie_domain = "";
and in the vB3 Admin Options under Cookies and HTTP Header Options:
Path to Save Cookies: / Cookie Domain: <blank>
At the moment VB is setup with the cookie domain .mydomain.com
