Multiple Domain Names for phpBB3 (same login and cookie )

I had searched everywhere to see if I could have multiple domain names for phpBB a website  multiple with same cookie. without  users getting kicked out after switching the domain name.

I found no solution, even some people on StackOverFlow suggested that it is technically impossible and I should stop searching for it .

The phpBB official documents also said they do not support multiple domain name and there is no solution for that, but I found a phpBB mod that would do the job beautifully !


its called th23 Domain .  This modification allows you to use phpBB across multiple domains (the same forum is accessible via different domains, e.g. via "www.domain.com" and "www.example.de"). 

You can specify sitename and cookie domain to use with your board and the MultiLogin option gives your users the possibility to login to all domains simultaniously.

Key Captcha - The Most Effective Anti-Spam for phpBB3

phpBB is one the oldest and most popular forum software out there,but the biggest problem for it is spam robots . I have tried all the tricks and mods  and spambot countermeasures  for phpBB,  and none of them worked for me .

Even the most sophesticated and most annoying captcha plugins couldn't keep those porn robots away from the forums .

I even tried question-answer plugins, that I made my personal questions and answers , it is very strange those spam robot programmers in india found my answers and added it to their robots , i twas really annoying that I had to make all users posts Pending on my approval .[a very big pain in the neck finding legimate users among 100 porn robot posters]
