    i have the same problem on my WP Wall plugin, i cant post anything.. anyone care to help?? :S



    This is likely related to something you have in the .htaccess file, possibly a password protected directory or something similar. Check the folders in which your wordpress is installed in, as well as the wp-content folder and the plugins folder and try temporarily renaming your .htaccess file to see if it fixes something. If it doesn’t, rename your plugin folder. If that fixes it, then you know there was a problem with a plugin, after that you can try disabling plugins through trial and error until you figure out which plugin(s) are causing the problems.

    I have also had this problem (4 times since July 10) Now when it happens I know to look in my htaccess file and remove any unwanted code. However, each time, the code is slightly different and I am wondering how it gets there!

    I had recently added a few new plug ins (wp super cache and simple press forum) SPF has said there is nothing with that plug in that should affect htaccess so I disabled wp super cache for now. We’ll see if it happens again, and I would definitely like to reeactivate that plug in so the site isn’t so slow.

    This problem definitely related to wordpress… does anyone have any ideas on why this might be happening or how i can stop it from happening?
