* "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 Website Theme (Special Thanks to Dionysiandame)
« on: June 10, 2013, 06:31:44 pm »
As some of you may have noticed, we are switching our main site (http://www.ecauldron.com) to Wordpress. Thanks to our first Silver Patron Donor,  Dionysiandame, we have been able to purchase the "Pro" version of the Weaver II Wordpress theme -- a theme designed for easy customization without have to hack theme code. Another nice thing about this theme is we can use it on all Cauldron sites and subsites for one $29.95 price -- which is a very affordable Wordpress theme. BTW, Weaver II theme is written by Bruce Wampler -- a name long time PC users may remember as the author of the first semi-decent grammar checker program, Grammatik.

Money from Patron level donations will be used to make up shortfalls in the server fund first of all, but when not needed for such they will be used to buy special features to enhance our message board and web site.

I like it. :)

More is coming. I've barely touched what we can do with the pro version of this theme.

It doesn't look any different to me (on either my phone or my computer).  

What am I doing wrong?  :ashamed:

I suspect it looks different on mobile devices. I don't own one so I can't say. So far the only changes made with the pro version of the theme are to the header. It has a top and bottom menu and the text now overlays the header image.  How much of this appears on the mobile version, I don't know. The menus probably do not there is supposed to be a special mobile menu.

I've looked on my computer, too, but I'll look again -- more closely.  I'm probably just not being observant.  ;)

It's pretty obvious on the computer? The header's a nice graphic now instead of the light blue bar it was before.

I was really confused at first, though, because I read too fast and thought you meant the forum instead of the website! I was looking at the forum going "wait, no, the logo's the same, and..."

There's another thing going on. I switched the site to Wordpress with the (free) Weaver II theme near the beginning of May. I just switched to the pro version of the theme this week. If you regularly visit the site, it does not look a huge amount different (yet) this week than it did last week. If you haven't seen the site in a couple of months, it looks 100% different.

That did the trick.  Thanks!  (I should have thought of it myself.)

More changes to the main page of our web site. I doubt this will be the final version, but it is the first attempt at a major change to what's there in years.

Just a quick little niggle. I notice the Silver Patron donation is not advertised in the "Donate" box to the right. Maybe they'll just get to the donation page and see it, but it might be good to have it there so newcomers can be effected subliminally? I don't know.
