* "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.

I know this is an old thread (super sorry), but it's happening again, and the error I'm getting is apparently because "too many redirects occurred."

Anyone else?

 

Yes, I'm having the same problem.  Had to do a search on Yahoo for the Cauldron.  Ended up using the following to get here.

Use ecauldron.com for the main site and http://www.ecauldron.com/forum for the forum.  I need a full day of dree time to try to get the message board to work with ecauldron.com (as Wordpress 3.9 seems to need for the main site) in case of problems. Having that full day seems very unlikely for the foreseeable future.

What's working for me is simply to retry, if I encounter the problem. I don't get it often, and when I do, the second attempt nearly always works.

This is easy enough to do that I'm not in a huge hurry for you to fix it; I'd rather have, 'not Tuesday, but good,' than, 'not good but Tuesday.'

YMMV; I speak here only for my own experiences with the problem.

It worked for me with whatever you've done.  I don't know about anyone else.
