* "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 have no idea what you are talking about?  Is this an ad?

Yes, it's in the right hand bar of the main site under the "special offers" heading.

Those are randomly selected. I'll see what I can do about it (tomorrow -- working with code late at night is a bad idea for a morning person) but as I don't control the site with the problem that may not be much more that getting the ad blocked.

Thanks Randall.  The random selection makes sense- I was a bit surprised by the title (doesn't really fit with most things on here!) hence I clicked it.

And that particular ad has been disabled. Well, I hope it is as it's selected randomly. :)

Thank you for pointing out the problem.
