The new feature issue has been fixed and turned out to be a problem that's been in the system for almost a year. However, it is a very rare scenario and has never been reported by users.

GEEK-SPEAK
In any case, the scenario is now accounted for on all requests and won't be an issue from now on. This may have affected some requests, only when using javascript/AJAX/etc WITH lock to account enabled AND the referrer was setup properly, that the script may not have properly reported the primary referrer. In that case, we had to substitute an alternate referrer, which we already made available, but I did not realize was required in some cases.

One important note that I should make:

If you are using a 3rd-party plugin (i.e. WordPress, Drupal, JV-Extensions, etc), then you won't need to worry about the changes. We are working with (or will be soon) all 3rd-party integrators to update their code. They will provide an easy upgrade that will handle it all for you.

p.s. And I'm very excited because we are finally in a position to give back more to the community (mostly due to all the recent and upcoming changes). So we will be making a big announcement in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

I am about to take the system down for a few minutes (3:00am ET) to make some database updates. These changes are needed to pave the way for "Bandwidth PLUS" and should not affect any current services. I post an update once everything is tested and confirmed working.

Alright. It looks like those changes went well.

I have launched the next part of Phase 1 for this project.

That is the new STW Preview Verification code for non-paying users. It is not yet locked down but that code will be provided within the system now. It looks like that code is working well, but we may tweak it once we receive feedback from users.

Not sure if this is relevant or not but in my "Lock to Account (Allowed Referrers)" I got several lines of 'test.com'. I'm 90% sure I didn't add them.

It wasn't you. Wink

It's some bad data that I haven't had time to correct yet. It doesn't hurt anything, though, so it is safe to remove them, which I'll do for you now. Thanks for reporting, though, because sometimes we may not be aware of an issue.

Hi,

not sure if it's of any meaning, but it seems the allowed referrer's domain.tld did not work properly for my account. Had to add the IP-address to get rid of the "locked account" error.

Best regards,
Thomas

Hi clever,

It's a good point. I've been helping other individually but finally got some time to update the FAQ on this topic. How do I lock my account?

I am lost, STW worked great, then i made the change to images. and it worked great again, now i have no screen shots whatsoever. Its not a huge deal, the directory isnt even live yet but i would love to get it right before it goes live. Any help would be appreciated. http://directory.marketinglistinfo.com
