* "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.

A good website on the Celtic deities is http://www.joellessacredgrove.com/Celtic/deities.html

 
I dunno if I'd call it good, at least not without qualifiers.  It's extensive, but not comprehensive (f'ex, Manawyddan has no entry of his own, nor is he covered in the entry on Manannan); it's useful, but not nearly enough to be used as the sole (or even primary) resource, and it's not always as reliable as I'd like.  Keep in mind that Joelle is an enthusiastic amateur, not a scholar in any relevant field; her site (as a whole, not only the Celtic stuff) is much more a folklore compendium than anything else.

I consider Mary Jones' Celtic Encyclopedia to be much more reliable - she is a scholar in the field.  OTOH, its entries cover far more ground than just deities - that's great in general, but makes it harder to look for deity info in particular.  But using both resources together could work very well indeed.

That is a very good site, and yes Mary Jones is a good source of Celtic Scholarly work.
