  • Resolved shockazulu



    This is bizarre, if I add the word “Select” anywhere in my posting, when I click Save, I get a blank page. Anyone having the same problem? I’ve had to change the ‘S’ to a five ‘5’ to POST the content successfully.

  • bet you can write a post with the word “union” in it either

    how bout “curl”, “.htaccess” ?

    leave the quotes off when you test.

    And why would that be asks Curious George? And .. what’s the workaround? Leetspeak? I could have sworn I’ve blogged about .htaccess before.

    mod_security is checking the content of the $_POST

    select == MySQL

    there are no quotes when I test, I added the quotes so you’d understand the exact phrase that is causing the problem. still not clear on your solution.

    shockazulu, interesting I cant replicate that.

    Just the word “select” in the post content? and click save.

    All works for me, have you got any fancy plugins installed?

    I tell a lie –
    it does what shockazulu said….

    I create dummy post entitled “test” with content “select” and then click Save, it just gives error

    Your attempt to edit this post: “test” has failed.

    Please try again.

    Try again a couple of times, its not saved the comment.

    Intermittent, works, then fails, works, then fails

    I’ve also got my .htaccess file setup in wp-admin with:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
