Ok, here's the problem.
I always refer to my site without the www. prefix. Every link everywhere (that I know of) refers to it without the www. prefix. My UBB is configured not to use the www. prefix.
Note a trend?
My problem is that my users are ALWAYS tacking on the stupid www. prefix when they _TYPE_ in my URL. So, when they visit my UBB, their cookies get broken, as all the forums and threads off the main page are without the www. prefix. It's more than annoying: they then mail me asking what's wrong, what I've done to the code, etc. I finally tracked down what was causing this last night (a lot of good beta testing did!).
So, how do I fix this? Is there anything like an SSI script I can call from my pages that will ensure that the user's not accessing using www.? Could something be configured server side to automatically forward any user that accesses anything using the www. prefix to the appropriate document without the www.?
Is there another solution I've overlooked?
