dear.

i am facing problem with open blog. in open blog i just print

My problem is this i am using openblog with my personal codeigniter website. when user login to my website and move to blog then i am unable to access session data i blog.

means session set after login of user... like ( $this->session->userdata('user_id') ). when user move to blog by clicking im unable to access $this->session->userdata('user_id') ..

Application Paths are  :

domain.com
domain.com/blog

when we login and move from domain.com to domain.com/blog then session missed...

this means session reset.

so please tell me how to change / edit open blog so this becomes good with my script.

This is not specific to CodeIgniter, but I can show you how to set the session cookie so it covers all sub-domains and sub-directories.
<?php // RAY_session_cookie_domain.php
/* *
 * QUESTION: WHEN CLIENTS VISIT MY SITE SOMETIMES THEY USE www.mysite.org
 * BUT SOMETIMES THEY USE mysite.org WITHOUT THE WWW.  HOW CAN I HANDLE
 * THE SESSION ISSUES THAT ARISE FROM THIS?
 *
 * ANSWER: ONE WAY IS TO REWRITE THE URL TO REMOVE THE SUBDOMAIN IF IT
 * IS WWW.  FOR EXAMPLE:
 *
 *     Options +FollowSymlinks
 *     RewriteEngine on
 *     RewriteCond %{http_host} ^www\.example\.org [NC]
 *     RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example.org/$1 [R=301,NC]
 *
 * ANOTHER WAY IS TO MODIFY THE SESSION COOKIE SO IT WORKS ACROSS ALL OF
 * YOUR SUBDOMAINS.  YOUR CHOICE WILL LARGELY DEPEND ON THE WAY YOU WANT
 * TO HANDLE OTHER SUBDOMAINS (OTHER THAN WWW).

// DEMONSTRATE HOW TO START SESSIONS THAT WORK IN DIFFERENT SUBDOMAINS PHP 5.2+
error_reporting(E_ALL);


// MAKE THE SESSION COOKIE AVAILABLE TO ALL SUBDOMAINS
// MAKE A DOMAIN NAME THAT OMITS WWW OR OTHER SUBDOMAINS
// BREAK THE HOST NAME APART AT THE DOTS
$x = explode('.', strtolower($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]));
$y = count($x);
// POSSIBLY 'localhost'
if ($y == 1)
{
    $host = $x[0];
}
// MAYBE SOMETHING LIKE 'www2.atf70.whitehouse.gov'
else
{
    // USE A DOT PLUS THE LAST TWO POSITIONS TO MAKE THE HOST DOMAIN NAME
    $host = '.' . $x[$y-2] . '.' . $x[$y-1];
}

// START THE SESSION AND SET THE COOKIE FOR ALL SUBDOMAINS
$sess_name = session_name();
if (session_start())
{
    // MAN PAGE http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.setcookie.php
    setcookie($sess_name, session_id(), NULL, '/', $host, FALSE, TRUE);
}


// PROVE THAT THE COOKIE WORKS IN MULTIPLE DOMAINS
// LOAD UP SOME INFORMATION TO SHOW SESSION CONTENTS
$_SESSION["cheese"] = "Cheddar";
if (!isset($_SESSION["count"])) $_SESSION["count"] = 0;
$_SESSION["count"] ++;


// PUT UP TWO LINKS WITH DIFFERENT SUBDOMAINS
// STRIP OFF THE DOT THAT WAS NEEDED FOR SETCOOKIE
$gost = ltrim($host,'.');
$dmn_link = 'http://'    . $gost . '/RAY_dump_session.php'; // var_dump() SCRIPT
$www_link = 'http://www' . $host . '/RAY_dump_session.php';

echo "<br/><a target=\"_blank\" href=\"$www_link\">$www_link</a>" . PHP_EOL;
echo "<br/><a target=\"_blank\" href=\"$dmn_link\">$dmn_link</a>" . PHP_EOL;


// SHOW WHAT IS IN COOKIE AND IN $_SESSION
echo "<pre>";
echo "COOKIE ";
var_dump($_COOKIE);
echo PHP_EOL . PHP_EOL;
echo "SESSION ";
var_dump($_SESSION);
echo "</pre>";
