The page is redirecting before the embedded forum is shown
To prevent a redirect from happening before your embedded forum is shown, you can make your forum use a subdomain of your website's domain name. For example, forums.yourdomain.com. That will cause the browser to consider the cookies as first-party so that a redirect won't have to occur.
When the forum is embedded into a page and a subdomain of your website isn't used, the cookies that it sets become third-party cookies since it is not the main page that was requested in the browser address bar. The Safari browser blocks third-party cookies by default. In order to overcome this, when the Safari browser is used to view an embedded forum for the first time, the page will first redirect to the forum so that it becomes first-party and then it will redirect back to the embedded forum. This ensures that the Safari browser accepts cookies from the forum so that users can log in and use the functionality as normal. The redirect will only happen the first time the user visits the forum using the Safari browser.
