Could one of the domains (gammon.com.au / mushclient.com) be redirected to the other, at least when the user is on the forum?

Because cookies are domain-based, it means that if you are logged in on one domain, you may not be logged in on the other domain, and it's somewhat awkward since there are links pointing to the forums under both domains.

For search engine purposes, one would think the mushclient.com domain would perform better due to mushclient likely being a more common search term.

It would make sense for mushclient.com to redirect to gammon.com.au/mushclient/mushclient.htm.

I was asking recently about which domain more people use, to try to resolve this.

One approach would be for the forum to stick to whatever domain it is in, that is, if you are in gammon.com.au and you follow a link, it generates a link for that domain, and the same for mushclient.com.

I will try to monitor this and make it work more smoothly.
