error message - reference?

(1/10) > >>

brynn:
Hi Friends,
Is there any kind of reference where we can look up various error messages, to learn what they're about?  I hate to always have to take up your time asking about them.

Actually, I have searched, but didn't find anything.  I'm hoping maybe I just missed it?

In case there isn't a reference, here's the error.  It just started about a month ago, but I can't think of any particular change I might have made at that time.  It looks like people are having trouble logging in.  And it looks like maybe they have their referrer header blocked.  But I don't remember seeing any kind of setting in the admin panel about requiring that.  Although there's every chance it could be technical language that I don't understand.

Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again.

Do you need to see my list of mods?  I'm thinking maybe Forum Firewall might have something about it?  (It was installed for me, some time ago, but I'm no longer in touch with the person who installed it.)

I did migrate to a new server close to 2 months ago.  I don't suppose this could somehow be a server setting?

Thanks for your help   :)

Sir Osis of Liver:
Can you post errors from your forum or server error logs?

vbgamer45:
Make sure simple portal is on the latest version.

Custom themes might need to their index.template.php editor and the login template for them edited.

Sir Osis of Liver:
Hmm, if you go to https://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?action=login2 you get the referring url error, but if you go to https://inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?action=login2 you sometimes get the session timeout error (not always).  Are all paths in repair_settings with/without www.?

Do make sure all settings for the forum, and themes are structured in the same way.
All either with or without SSL, and all either with or without WWW, but no mix and match.
The login / logout functionality may not work right if there are different types or urls involved.

Start with repair_settings, like Sir Osis of Liver suggested. :)
