* "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.

Hey there.

I was trying to post a reply to Perdita Pickles thread in the Paganism for Beginners about what to bring to a fellow Pagan's home... but I got this message instead:

The error message says your browser has corrupted cookies for this site.  Assuming you aren't infected by malware, clearing cookies for this site (ecauldron.com) will likely fix it. Simply logging out, completely exiting your browser and logging back in might also fix it. Basically, Bad Behavior sees something in your system's interaction with the board software that looks like something isn't kosher.

Thanks! I did just that (log in and out) and it fixed the issue. Huzzah!
