Another Gremlin - Unable to verify....
« on: October 20, 2020, 01:28:36 PM »
I have seen a few of the following error in the error log:

Unable to verify the referrer address. Please go back and try again

I figured they were being caused by bots trying to register until it happened to me!  I'm in OK using my phone hot-spot and got this error when I tried to log in.  I posted about it on the SMF forum and they offered a tweak I will implement once I get back but they provided a workaround.

If I attach to the site by entering  "https://www.bmwr65.org" I get the error.  If connecting by leaving off the WWW I log in properly.  Folks can do this until I can address the root cause which was introduced when I did some redirection stuff to fix the security issues Chrome complained about. 

I hate computers...

Myself,  I haven't written an address with WWW in front of it in years. I'm sure I have cut and pasted a few. It doesn't seem to make any difference , I always get where I want to go with out the WWW.

So far I really like the new look and feel of the forum, and that's from a old curmudgeon that would usually rather eat cockroaches than change. :furious3:

Justin has done quit a bit of work molding the new platform to our needs. 

GREAT JOB  :beerchug:

I incorporated some tweaks suggested by SMF support to one of the web server files.  I was able to log in specifying www.bmwr65.org so maybe I can cross this off the to-do list!
