* "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.

As Jubes managed to fix the issue with the mod hat code, I've turned the Bold grey style back on.  Thanks should go to Jubes.

 
You're  Welcome. I  kinda like this bold  grey style.

Light text on a dark background has always been hard for me to read. But now, at least, those who whose eyes are the opposite of mine can be happy too. :)

I've noticed that on the "Gray Gremlin" theme, words with links attached are the same color as the rest of the paragraph.  This makes it very hard to tell if there's a link there or not.  I think the color is different but it's so subtle I barely notice.

I ended up just switching back to the default theme.  This is not something I particularly mind, but I thought I would mention it.

 
The links  on the Grey Gremlins style  should  now  be  blue,  all of them!! Any  text that  has turned  blue on  that  style  is  a click able  link. If the blue color  is  bothersome  to anyone  please  post in  here and I can  try  another  color.

As do I.  Although there is still some drawbacks.  On the box you compose your post you can not see some of the text options: Bold, Underline, Italic (but those are no big deal since I just type in the bbcode for those manually), and the two Wrap (one for code and one for html) buttons that I don't use anyway.

And the text on the main Groups page is unreadable, but I don't have much need to go to that page except to maybe join a group (the join/leave button is still very visible and you could always read the group description in the autogenerated announcement).

The drawbacks are easy to live with, and are not on the same troublesome level as the not being able to read mod warnings.

OK I've also  noticed  that the  buttons  at the  bottom of the posts are really  hard to see too, the  reply with  quote  buttons etc, I'm going to go over to  the  test  board and see if I can  fix those too.
