    Are you using bbpress for your forum?

    Did you try enabling the firewall rules one by one to see which one is causing the breakage?

    Hello,
    I am using http://mods.mybb.com/view/google-seo on my forum.

    I have done what you said and found it is “Advanced Character String Filter” which stops the forum working.

    Is there anything I could add so that .htaccess file does not do anything to the forum directory?

    Simply leave the advanced character string filter rules disabled.
    The other rules will provide you with plenty of security.

    Hello,
    Sadly this is not working for me this sites still getting malware put on the theme. Now my other blogs i cleaned the up new themes everything attacks stop, This site can’t get it to do this.

    I have reason to believe that this setting is what’s saving the other websites. Is there no way at all to use this?

    The only way we can make the character string filter work with your plugin is by making it less secure. When we make it less secure, it kind of defeats the purpose of that feature.

    Instead of requesting us to make that feature less secure, it is better to request that plugin developer to not use those character strings.

    The forum is not a plug-in it is MyBB in a separate folder but the .htacess is affecting it. is there nothing i can put on that .htaccess that will stop it working in that folder.

    Otherwise if i put the forum on forum.merlinmania.com that would solve the problem right?

    Yes if you put it on a subdomain like forum.example.com then it won’t be affected by the firewall rules you set in this security plugin.
