* "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.

There are two common reasons why I picture is not accepted.

First, on picture services like Flicker or Photobucket, the urls do not always directly link to the picture, but rather to a web page displaying the picture. The software needs a URL directly to the picture.

Second, the picture may be too big. As the note says: "The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 31.3 KB (whichever is smaller)"
