    When I try to add links to my blogroll, it gives me this message: Sorry, you need to enable sending referrers for this feature to work.

    I followed the link, and my firefox setting are as they should be. I have never had this problem before and haven’t changed anything except ‘quick claim’ my blog on technorati wich required me to input my username and password…. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I am having the same problem. I followed the wordpress guide sheet and did what was suggested for IE but it doesn’t seem to be working. Thing is, I did the blogroll yesterday and it was fine, and now it tells me I need to ‘enable sending referrers’ – and I don’t think I did anything to the computer in the meantime!

    Hope someone can help,

    Thanks,

    Paul

    You may want to check the settings again. I know some of the IE resets itself upon a reboot. (ie window size. I always have to reset it after each reboot here.) That may be the issue.

    Thanks Dr Mike, but it’s still not working. What is strange is, when I visit another wordpress.com blog and use the ‘add to blogroll’ feature it works fine, but in the management system not.

    Hmmm. I’ll keep trying.

    A little update. I tried in Firefox instead of IE and got the same problem. Now, reading the help that matt linked to suggests it might be something to do with Norton. Problem is I am not the most technicallz smart person out there, and I don’t really understand what to do.

    If anyone has had a similar experience with the ‘enable sending referrers’ problem and has a suggestion it will be much appreciated, as not only can I not post links, it won’t let me update any options anymore either.

    Cheers

    OK, problem solved. In case anyone else has this problem, it was Norton that was causing it.
