Disable Referrer Security
I’m just hoping this gets looked at by someone because I’m sure there is someone else out there who, like me, has done everything imaginable to fix this stupid problem with the “You need to have sending referrers enabled” security, and still not gotten it to work.
It’s been two days now. I’ve disabled my firewall, fiddled with settings in Firefox (which I do indeed sometimes disable referrers on, so I wanted to make sure my config isn’t bonkers), tried in IE (which I never touch and have certainly never disabled referrers in), rebooted my machine a few times, logged in and out of WP multiple times, tried accessing my site from the typical URL I use (no ‘www.’) and from the ‘www.’ appended version… I’ve even hung from the ceiling by my toes praying to the great Internet Gods… No luck.
Nothing, nothing will make this go away. This means I can’t activate/deactivate plugins, can’t delete posts, and most importantly, I can’t even change the theme on my site, which is the most pressing issue as I am in the middle of redesigning and would really like to test out my code. Pity, I can’t, because of this ‘security’ that is bonkers and apparently can’t be disabled from within WP.
I am hoping to god that by the time 1.5 goes live, this problem is either ‘fixed’ or that there is someway to disable it.
I hate to sound like I’m really pissed off and ranting, because, really, I’m not pissed off. It’s just a massive headache that, to me, should have some sort of relief.
Now I’m going to go have a good long cry.
