* "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.

Links in signiture
« on: July 15, 2014, 11:57:09 pm »
I'm trying to add a link to my signiture, but when I do, the HTML code prints as well.  Looking at the signiture permissions box, it shows Allow HTML No.  How do I change this to allow the use of HTML coding.  I feel like this is something simple that I'm just completely overlooking:ashamed:
I am currently on a free account if that makes a difference.

Rather than using HTML, you want to use BBCode (removing the extraneous spaces from my example below):

[ URL=http://google.com]Link![ /URL]

Thanks so much! I didn't even think about BBCode.
