HTTP_Referer error message - where is it?

I have read all about the debate on the HTTP Referer. The site I am running is used by members from government organizations, so changing firewall settings is not an option. I find that sometimes I get the error and sometimes I don't. Regardless, if I just carry on and go to the area I want, there is no problem.

The problem is that my users (who understand less than I do about computers) get scared by the message and phone me.

I need to find the source of the "Why am I being re-directed here?" message so I can change some the content. Unfortunately being a rookie with all of this, I have been unable to find the source of the error message.

Is it in MYSQL? If so where?

Please see https://xoops.org/modules/smartfaq/faq.php?faqid=310

I'm not sure that's up-to-date, so ask for more info if that doesn't resolve your issue.

Thanks for the reply.

I had read that information but it isn't what I am looking for. I want the Referrer Checking on. I just logged into my site and receive this message:

Why am I being redirected here?

O.A.L.E.P. site security has detected that your computer has a firewall setting that is preventing you from registering on the site. We use 'Referrer-checking' know as HTTP_REFERER which makes sure that all contents posted are from authorised users only. Your firewall settings are blocking this information, so this will prevent .... and so on.

I am trying to figure out where this text is actually stored so I can change it. What I am finding is that despite this message being displayed, I can continue to whatever area of the site I want to and everything is fine.

I just want to alter the text to tell my users to ignore the message and carry on. That may not be the way it is supposed to work, but it is working just fine.

So the question remains, Where does the text for that message come from.

In XOOPS 2.2.x, it's in modules/system/language/english/error.php
