    Hi,

    whenever i try to post this block of text into my blog in the about me section the page wont work and will refer me to my hosting site it's a weird problem. Are there some punctuations that you cannot use in wordpress?

    "I'm a student at a private high school. I have aspirations of owning my own Hedge Fund. But I'm not really sure what I want to do out of college, maybe investment banking maybe private trading. I still have to decide. But currently I spend my time focusing on my studies and learning as much as possible about the markets."

    I dont see anything wrong with it and i'm trying to post without the quotes

    any help much appreciated

    Do you mean where it goes in the sidebar? Or are you talking about entering it into the text field on a page you're editing?

    Have you updated any other information yet?
    (Can you make a new post or create another page?)

    Yes, what i tried doing was entering the text paragraph by paragraph and as soon as i put the above paragraph the page no longer works.

    I thought maybe it could have been possibly that the post was to long so i tried making a new page that would only have the above paragraph in it and i get the same problem.

    perplexing the heck out of me because it doesn't seem to make any sense.

    That's a weird problem...

    That paragraph posts fine for me. There must be something more sinister afoot.

    So, other page posts work fine?

    And the page works if that paragraph is omitted, but not if it's included?

    I pasted it into one of my blogs and it worked. Are you using the visual editor or the code editor to input text (the tabs above the input field)?

    If you're using visual, switch to code and copy the text then come back here and paste it. Make sure you put tick marks around the code when you paste it here (next to the 1 key on your keyboard's row of top numbers).

    I'm a student at a private high school. I have aspirations of owning my own Hedge Fund. But I'm not really sure what I want to do out of college, maybe investment banking maybe private trading. I still have to decide. But currently I spend my time focusing on my studies and learning as much as possible about the markets.

    that's exactly what's in the code section....and as soon i click save and continue i get refered back to my host...and shown a 403 error i don't get it there's no code in the input fields...unless i'm doing something wrong

    Delete the about page your editing and create a new one. Maybe it got corrupted somehow. The other option is to start deleting individual sentences until you find the problem.

    i tried looking again and found this:

    <code>I'm a student at a private high school. I have aspirations of owning my own Hedge Fund.

But currently I spend my time focusing on my studies and learning as much as possible about the markets.</code>

    maybe investment banking maybe private trading.

    this is the problem although it makes no sense. entering this string of text renders the page null

    That is so weird.
    Have you been copying and pasting the whole time? What happens if you delete that line and then type it back in manually?

    Well i was copying and pasting the whole time so i just tried creating a new page and typing the string yet i still get the same result same 403 error from my host.

    Seeing as i know what string not to type I just pasted the whole post, about 5 paragraphs, without that sentence and everything went through smooth.

    So i think the problem lies in one of these two possibilities:

    1. Maybe my host doesn't allow for one of those terms to posted on their servers. Which doesn't seem normal but could possibly happen.
    or
    2. I should not be considering private trading or investment banking and should stick to my hedge fund ideas.
    hahaha : )

    Such a weird problem to have but its been solved. So thanks to everyone for the help.

    I think I'm having exactly the same problem. Whenever I try to put a large chunk of content, I get a 403 error when submitting the page. And for whatever reason, this only occurs when the text is several paragraphs down the page and it includes the word "from". I know, sounds crazy, right? Here's the text I'm using:

    With the enthusiastic support of Jerome Hill, the Committee, consisting of P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, James Broughton, Ken Kelman and myself and for a brief period Stan Brakhage began its work. During the following few years it held numerous and lengthy selection sessions, compiling the first Essential Cinema Repertory collection consisting of about 330 titles.
    
    But fate had other plans for us. In February 1973 Jerome Hill died. The Avon Foundation, Jerome's foundation behind the Anthology project, which had built a special, Invisible Cinema theater, designed by Peter Kubelka, and had paid for the acquisition of all the prints voted into the Essential Cinema collection, and the running of Anthology was taken over by people who did not share Jerome's vision. All funding to the Anthology project was cut off. Anthology had to move <strong>from</strong> the 425 Lafayette Street location, first to 80 Wooster Street, then to 491 Broadway, and then to its present location.

    It also happens with this text:

    The cinematheques of the world generally collect and show the multiple manifestations of film: as document, history, industry, mass communication... Anthology Film Archives is the first film museum exclusively devoted to the film as an art. What are the essentials of the film experience? Which films embody the heights of the art of cinema? The creation of Anthology Film Archives has been an ambitious attempt to provide answers to these questions; the first of which is physical - to construct a theater in which films can be seen under the best conditions; and second critical - to define the art of film in terms of selected works which indicate its essences and parameters.
    
    One of the guiding principles of this new film museum is that a great film must be seen many times. For that reason the entire collection will be presented in repeated cycles. With three different programs each day, an anthology of one hundred programs (approximately equivalent to our present collection) can be repeated monthly. In this way frequent periodic viewing will be possible for the dedicated spectator. The cycle will also provide a unique opportunity for students of the medium to see a concentrated history of the art of film within a period of four or five weeks. One would have to travel extensively and spend a few years in film museums to acquire the cinematic education of equal magnitude.
    
    - The Essential Cinema: Essays on the films in the collection of Anthology Film Archives, edited by P. Adams Sitney 
    
    AN UPDATE: Our present physical and financial conditions do not permit us to screen the Essential Cinema Repertory as it was initially presented. Our projection is still far <strong>from</strong> perfect, and 3 programs per day is a far dream. But the Repertory itself is intact and it will remain so, a heroic statement of the art of Cinema.
    - Jonas Mekas, 1975

    (The offending "from"s are in bold)

    Ah, my issue was with mod_security running on the server. (The host is Hostdime, for those who might encounter this as well.) Mod_security was denying access due to the content of the post, turning off this module solved the problem.
