[resolved] Enable Sending Referrers - I'm at a loss... (6 posts)

    I've done everything listed in the codex (checking the site URI, checking firewalls, extensions, other software) and referrers are definitely being sent (according to RefControl).

    I recently upgraded to 2.0.2 onto a new server (and new domain name) and everything was fine. I initially got the error when I tried to change the name of my blog, but after configuring my firewall it was fine. But now when I try and save a post the error comes up again. I thought it could have been .htaccess, so I edited the file back to when it worked, and also removed the file altogether, and also switched PHP versions from 5 to 4... and still nothing.

    What exactly does it say in the " Where you came from: " box?

    "When I allowed referrers:"
    so you are blocking some?

    If you remove refcontrol, what happens?

    I always block referrers, but I also always allow them for certain sites, such as my blog. It was fine before when I changed the title of the blog (due to moving domains), but then I'm assuming something changed and the error begain popping up.

    I actually only installed RefControl due to this very problem, just to check if referrers were really being sent, and they were. No matter what I do though, I can't seem to get it working. I've also cleared cookies and the wordpress cache.

    What on earth? Now it's fine again, and all I did was restart my computer.
