[resolved] Freakish: Page Publish causing hang because of ONE WORD? (6 posts)

    Ok, this is a strange one. I recently had to update a page, only to have it hang at the click of "update." I thought it could have been memory based, but no. Adding LOADS of text to the page meant it updated quite happily, as long as the revised paragraph wasn't inserted.

    I inserted the new paragraph word-by-word, in plain text, until I discovered one word that seemed to trigger the hang. Replacing the word "from" with "for" fixed the issue.

    So, I'm just wondering if anyone has a clue what might be causing the issue here? I've never had this happen to me before...

    Any advice gratefully received!

    Hey thanks so much. Bizarre. My client is on Crystaltech and so there has to be something going on with that and, err, the word "from". I thought I was going mad, and this at least confirms it's a known issue.

    Thank you for pointing me to this thread.

    Taking a closer look at that other thread, it seems we can raise a ticket to whitelist our site to prevent whatever security measure is causing it. Won't need to do that for now but if it presents a problem it's a way forward.

    kmessinger, thanks again for pretty much the quickest solution to a WordPress support issue I've ever received! Going to mark as resolved now...
