Support » Fixing WordPress » Cross-Site Scripting Error

  • I just installed WordPress 2.2 through BlueHost and Fantastico. I was working on modifying my .htaccess file which I had tons of problems with so removed installation and added WP back in a few times, including wiping the whole site clean and doing it again. Over the process, my Visual Text Editor broke in IE6. It does work in FireFox but I don’t use Firefox, I use IE and really need it to work correctly as I’m going to be using it quite a lot. Or I would like to. 🙂

    I don’t think BlueHost updated their WordPress 2.2 download over the weekend (although I suppose they could have) and did something to the WYSIWYG (Rich Text Editor). I think it’s my site… But I can’t figure out how to fix it.

    If I turn it off in my User Profile, I can type. But I would really prefer to use the WYSIWYG editor!

    Any thoughts on how to fix it? My IE toolbar on the bottom left says ‘Done, with errors’ and I can’t put my mouse cursor into the Rich Text Editor box. The box is just not ‘open’. I also can’t click on any of the icons on the Editor (like the bold icon and add an image – all of them are broken).

    Here is the error I get when I click on the bottom left ‘error’ icon in my browser:

    Line: 176
    Char: 290
    Error: Access is Denied
    Code: 0
    URL: http:// mybigbearvacation .com/wp-admin/post-new.php

    Please advise if anyone has a good fix for this?? Thank you!

  • What does this have to do with XSS. Nothing. Have a look here at a search for the problem your experiencing.

    Hi Jeremy,

    In the BlueHostForums a mod suggested that it was XSS which was why I used that for the title.

    Thank you for the link though. I’ve been wasting so much time on this error for the past three days, searching the past threads as well. I finally found a link through your search above in the past two hours that was the simplest fix.

    Here is the thread that had the answer for me if anyone else finds this thread.
