I occasionally get a white screen and the following message when posting:

Quote:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /forum/posting.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I usually have to edit out links to get it to post.

For instance, I can post a link, picked at random from PowerSwitch, like this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-27435624

and it previews no problem. It will let me post part of a link from a news site such as:

http://www.scmp.com/news/world/article/1518580/

but that's not the full url, so doesn't work. You have to concatenate the following words:

wikileaks-reveals-afghanistan-second-country-having-

with:

all-mobile-phone

and add it onto the end of the http part! It won't even let me post the whole phrase starting with 'wikileaks' and ending in 'phone'.

Weird. It happened to me yesterday too and I was too busy to look into it.

I had a similar problem when adding images, but never did figure it out. I think it's a technical problem with the phpbb software though.

It's strange it's only just appeared and it's only the odd link here and there. When did you have the problem Mike?

Back in April some time, but if it's a technical problem in the software then it would still be there now I expect...
