* "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.

Signature?
« on: January 27, 2012, 09:32:30 am »
Hi!
I was wanting to play around with making a signature but didn't see
an option to change font color? Is it not possible to do that?
Also, is there a way to save a certain font and color for messaging?

Thanks
Tracie:)

We REALLY want people to stick with the default font for posting.  Changing it around can be difficult on those of us with crummy eyesight.

About the sig, hopefully someone else can help. :)

At the top right of the screen (inside the browser) is a list including SETTINGS - click on settings and then there will be a spot on the left side of the screen to edit signature.
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Ahhh.    Being older I prefer black printing so I never looked into that.

See what HeartShadow said.  Many of our members have poor eyesight and trying to read colored text on a screen only make things more difficult.  We make it difficult to change the text color for a reason.

That is a custom-made image that I uploaded from my hard drive.  I doubt that making text look like that is even possible with the forum software.

It is not possible  for the forum  software to make the text look like Mel's signature. If you want something like that it has to be custom made, uploaded and  most likely hosted on another site then the img link put in the  signature box. The blue font in his signature is because that's a click-able link. :)

Definitely not possible with vBulletin BBCode. On the web, really fancy text like your signature is almost always an image. Although with CSS3, it's possible to get fairly fancy with just HTML and CSS and javascript, the BBCode used on forums isn't nearly as powerful. That's by design as the lack of power also means it can't be use to create hacks like one can with full HTML/CSS/Javascript.

When i was making profile even i have not paid attention, as the signature is fine , signature is just a freedom given by admin of the forum and is controlled by the software of vbulletin.
