BBQ: Block Bad Queries
403 error message (9 posts)

    I get this error when working in WordPress, when requesting a page preview from the admin backend on page editing.

    I posted a ticket with my host, this is their response.

    ==================================================
    Hi Ray,

    This looks like a mod_Security error. I cant find anything in the error logs, but I have disabled it for your account - please let us know if that changes anything.

    Regards,

    T*** ******
    ======================================================

    Is there any chance that this plugin is causing this?

    I was using chrome browser
    Version 22.0.1229.94 m

    Regards

    Ray

    Hi hunnsdon, it was reported in the comments thread on the BBQ homepage that the plugin was blocking Google/Chrome stuff because of the pattern matching ":" in certain URL requests. Please update the plugin and see if it's working. If not, please let me know which URLs are blocked/not working so I can take a look. Thanks.

    Hi Jeff

    The hosts removal of the mod_security did solve this but I was toying with the idea of passworded directories, so they re-enabled.

    I was still having the trouble after your update which I did first thing before using the site.

    I'll see how it goes over the next few days.

    Hi Julio
    This is the normal previous whilst editing, then previewing:

    Hello !

    Yes! Correct, your last message is correct, I was responding to:

    Hi Hunnsdon,

    Is your link that way:
    http://example.com/hello-world/?preview=true
    http://example.com/2011/09/11/?preview=true

    or that way:
    http://example.org/?p=1&preview=true

    or paste yours.

    Thanks

    and this is what I got from the browser when I got the 403 error:

    wp-admin/post.php?t=1352622963937?t=1352623863711?t=1352624177338
    is not a correct url, "?" has to be used only 1 time.

    This was included with the 403 error.
