If your cookie settings were correct, everything after the sid= would be gone. Also, the logging out issue may be related to incorrect cookie settings. What are your cookie settings?

I see that your site is behind CloudFlare. Have you made the changes necessary to restore user IPs? If not, you will run into problems with session mismatches due to every user having the same IP.

CloudFlare provides several ways to fix this: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us ... isitor-IPs
If you're on shared hosting, they will have to do that for you. Though if they're offering it as a "switch", they should already have something in place to fix this.

If your host won't fix it on their end, you can install an extension to at least fix it in phpBB: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... nmasked_ip

I don't now. Do you know the correct settings for me? I use CloudFlare for the SSL certificate. :roll:

Have you tried
.tovenaarsforum.nl
It's used by _cfduid-cookie and also mentioned in your certificate.

Added:
I see you have a dot at the end of the cookiename. That used to cause problems (not sure if that's still the case) so just change the cookiename to exclude that possibility: use only alphanumeric characters (underscore and dash are allowed)

Also check: Security settings -> Session IP Validation -> set that to None
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.
