* "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.

Signature Guidelines
« on: May 20, 2017, 05:39:20 pm »
Users who do not wish to see member signatures may disable them in the Look and Layout section of their Profile settings area.

In order to keep The Forum fast for those who wish to see signatures we feel it is necessary to impose limits on signature size.

Size Limits -- Regular Members

The signature (including all text and images) must fit in a rectangle 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. The total file size of all graphics in the signature must be 35K or less. The image below is 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels high. Remember: This is the maximum size. Smaller is better.



Size Limits -- Donors and Active Staff

The signature (including all text and images) must fit in a rectangle 450 pixels wide by 250 pixels tall. The total file size of all graphics in the signature must be 50K or less. The image below is 450 pixels wide by 250 pixels high. Remember: This is the maximum size. Smaller is better.



Important Notes

Very limited Advertising is allowed in signatures as explained in our Advertising Guidelines.

All images stored on an external server must be stored either in server space you own/rent or on a service created to store pictures for use elsewhere. Do not steal bandwidth from others by linking to an image you come across on the web.

Signatures may not include annoying features like sound, animated images, or the like.

Exception for Text-Only Signatures

Not withstanding the above limits, text only signatures of three lines or less (five lines or less for Cauldron Supporters) may flow across the page (that is, are not restricted to 450 pixels wide) provided they word wrap in a friendly manner and are no more than three (five for Cauldron Supporters) lines on a 1024-pixel wide screen,

The Cauldron's server is expensive and requires monthly payments. Please become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor if you can. Donations are needed every month. Without member support, we can't afford the server.
