If you are using Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2004 please follow the following steps to create a rule:

Xoops checks by referers, and if you use other firewall software, you need check the manual for this.

How to pass referer information to specific Web pages in Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2004

When you click a Web page, your browser notes the current page that you are on and sends that information to the server of the new Web page. This way, the server for the new Web page knows the last Web page that you viewed. For example, if you are on www.symantec.com and click www.microsoft.com, the browser sends www.microsoft.com the information that you are currently viewing www.symantec.com. If you block referer information, the server of the page you are requesting to see does not know what page you saw last. By default, Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) blocks this information. However, some Web pages require this information before allowing you to view the page. If you need to allow referer information to pass to a particular Web page, you must create a rule for it.


1. Open NIS or NPF.
2. In NIS/NPF 2004, double-click Privacy Control, and then click Advanced.
3. Click Add Site. A new site/domain box appears.
4. Enter the name of the site that you want to receive the referrer information and click OK. In this example, it will be www.australia4wd.com. The site name appears in the left frame of the Options window.
5. Click the name of the new site.
6. Click the Global Settings tab.
7. In the \"Information about visited sites\" section, clear \"Use default settings.\"
8. Click Permit.
9. Click OK to close the Options window.

If you are unable to perform actions on our site such as post a message or some admin functions, and use Norton firewall services. Sorry about this but it is actually just a conflict between two secure systems.

Xoops, Traction Time's website software checks by referers, which means:

When you click a Web page, your browser notes the current page that you are on and sends that information to the server of the new Web page. This way, the server for the new Web page knows the last Web page that you viewed. For example, if you are on www.symantec.com and click www.microsoft.com, the browser sends www.microsoft.com the information that you are currently viewing www.symantec.com. If you block referer information, the server of the page you are requesting to see does not know what page you saw last. By default, Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) blocks this information. However, some Web pages require this information before allowing you to view the page. If you need to allow referer information to pass to a particular Web page, you must create a rule for it.

So you will need to add us to Norton.

If you don't use the site for a certain period of time you are automatically logged out. Using the site means loading new pages, if you just have one page displayed and you don't click on any links then the site is not used.

You have to be careful when you are writing long comments or messages. While you are writing the message you are on one page and the site thinks that you are inactive. If it takes you a very long time to finish the message then by the time you submit it you may be already logged out. One of two things could happen at this point. If anonymous postings are allowed then the message will be posted anonymously, the site administrator may be able to help you to fix this. If anonymous postings are not allowed then you will be prompted with an error message saying "Sorry, you don't have the permission to access this area." and your posting will be lost. You may be able to use the browser Back button to go back to the form, copy your message to the clipboard, go to the Home page, login and post again.

If you are writing long messages the best thing to do is to write them offline in some text editor and when you are done go to the site, login, and post your message by copying it from the editor.

No, it is not. You have to explicitly logout before closing your browser. It is very easy to verify this, go to the site, login and close your browser. You can try both closing just the current window (assuming you have other browser windows open) or closing all open browser windows. Then start the browser again and come back to the site. You will see that the site remembers you being logged in.
