Bug: WordPress crashes upon posting the word "Perl" (3 posts)

    Whenever I try to use the word "Perl" in one of my posts with a space on the right side, and I try to preview my post or publish it right away, I always get a 404 not found error.

    Sounds similar to this:


    and other posts.

    Your host may have a filter set on mod_security which is intended to stop people trying to run unauthorised code on their server, but has the undesired side-effect of stopping you from posting some words. Does the same thing happen with any other words?

    Hmmm, I'll ask my host about this.

    And no, I've never seen this before with any other word.
