* "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.

Hmm.  Nope, or not in here, or else it's been disabled.

It was looking like VB created autolinks to the wiki - every time someone said "paganism", VB made a link (made a link, took a drink - hence, drinking game).  I was trying to see how automatic it actually was.

I've turned that off (or at least mostly off) because 1) it is CPU intensive; 2) it will confuse people who can't understand why some word in their posts is linked when they did not put a link there; and 3) it links common words like "homepage" which is just going to confuse people in general.

Oh, bless you, bless you, bless you!  I was hoping that was the reason my test didn't do anything!

That's what it was for, to find out if what I thought was happening was what was happening, preliminary to asking if you could please get rid of it.  (I've seen autolinkers elsewhere, and I despise them - they're way too literal-minded and stupid to be useful without a lot of human oversight.)

I'm very glad I was running late on that one.
