* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

No 'Likes' in Twilight Zone forum?
« on: February 07, 2020, 04:41:52 am »
The 'Into the Twilight Zone' forum is now one larger forum, instead of being split into three child boards....

Have "likes" been disabled in the new forum? We had a good conversation a while back in Alternative Histories about Sanskrit and Greek, and I remember liking a couple of the posts and I believe that one or two of mine were liked as well. Now those are missing. Was that intentional, due to the nature of this forum? It seems as though some of these topics are still worthy of considered debate despite the shakiness of the subject matter. Or should the worthy conversations be moved back to the main board?

No, you're quite right: despite the subject matter, excellent discussions - and Like-able posts - can still happen in Into the Twilight Zone, without that (necessarily) leading to a move to another forum.

I imagine it was something I failed to do (either by missing something I should have clicked, or by there not being a clicky available to me) when I was merging the child boards. I'll have to ask Randall.

This is now fixed - it looks like the 'likes' given in the past have been restored, even, which I hadn't been counting on.
