* "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.

ADMIN: New Posts at Screen Bottom
« on: July 02, 2011, 05:53:51 pm »
One of the most appreciated features we managed to add to SMF was a way to return to the unread messages list from the bottom of the screen. We duplicated the entire menu bar at the bottom on SMF.  Sadly, there was no realistic way to do this on vBulletin. The menubar is too complex.

However, after a lot of searching for how to do this and where to put it, I have managed to add a New Posts button near the bottom -- very handy for when you have finished reading one thread and want to return to the new posts list to select another thread with new messages. I've added the button on the Quick Navigation line, between the forum list drop down and the Top button. Here's a picture of what to look for:



Note that this new button only appears on pages displaying the messages in a thread or the list of threads in a forum. It would not make much sense elsewhere. Also note that you will not see the "Moderation Tools" drop down unless you are a moderator. :)

Special thanks to Jubes on this one. Her editing of the bottom Reply to Thread button on the Test Forum last month gave me the major clue I needed to figure out where this was in all of the templates vBulletin uses.

Your welcome, but as I said a good share of the credit for this one belongs to Jubes. I've been trying to figure out how to something like this for weeks. It wasn't until I was re-reading her description of how she modified the bottom "Reply to Thread" button on the Test board than I managed to figure out how to do this.
