[resolved] "convert (from" in a post breaks WordPress (13 posts)

    I copied and pasted a big post into WordPress, but when I press Save, it gives me my site's 403 error page. I spent a long time removing things from the post until it saved correctly, and figured out that the text "convert (from" is what breaks it. I tried it on an older installation, and it had the same problem, so I don't think it's a plugin or anything like that.

    Should I report this as a bug?

    I also get 403 errors when I try to upload an image. WordPress is hopelessly broken.

    You don't have permission to access /wordpress/wp-admin/media-upload.php on this server.

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

    The 403 error stops if I am editing from http://www.domain.com instead of http://domain.com

    Nothing?

    The 403 may be due to your file/folder permissions settings or to something weird in your .htaccess (like a www to non-www redirect gone wrong).

    The bad bit of text may have contained a text gremlin, so try replacing it with a freshly typed (not pasted) version.

    Also try disabling all plugins to see if the error goes away.

    The "convert (from" is entirely plain text. I tried it on two different installations on my domain (main and test) and had the same problem.

    Even happens on a brand new installation with the "convert (from"

    Which .htaccess file?

    When I try to change images, I get:

    You don't have permission to access /wordpress/wp-admin/media-upload.php on this server.

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

    This happens no matter whether I change the Settings to have the www. or not.

    Ok I followed these directions to create a .htaccess file

    and I can insert images and type "convert (from" now. How bizarre.
