* "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.

Fort William Henry is a cool place. I've been there a few times. It's also gotten a lot of attention lately since Ghost Hunters did a TV investigation there. If I'm not mistaken, I think TAPS also did a paranormal boot camp there.
