    www & non-www redirect is broken

    Hi

    For a few days upon arriving on the forums index page I was greeted with a "Register" message, even though I'm logged in. It had been quite inconvenient, because I had to click to a subforum, which recognized me, and then the "New Posts" button. Logging in (twice) didnt work.

    Upon closer inspection, it seems that there are two forums now: seorefugee.com/forums and www.seorefugee.com/forums.

    It not only is almost embarassing to have on a SEO forum, but also detrimental to our SERPs and user convenience, so I hope it'll get fixed.

    Thanks

    P.S. My opinion is that it's better to redirect to the non-www version, because it's shorter and more readable.

    P.P.S. I know you are working on it, but some of the newer rep blobs aren't displaying to me for some reason.

    Completely clear your cache. The redirect is in place. Anyone accessing seorefugee.com should be immediately redirected to www.seorefugee.com

    Ummm not really.

    This thread for example - without the www - still exists. See here

    Funny thing is that I'm "logged out" when I visit the non-www version of the thread, as if it's on a different forum altogether.

    But all in all the www issue is not solved yet, as it seems

    I actually thought that the cookie is www/non-www sensitive (happens on some sites).

    The redirect works for the home page.

    In the blog any non-www page redirects to the home page

    And, in the forum, it doesn't work at all.

    i dont know about vbulletin but you can switch on or off subdomain independent cookies.

    but it should be 301ded anyway and i think www. is best because its a wwwebsite
